Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden – Yellow Diamonds.

Fancy Yellow Diamond made here in Arlington & Co’s workshop.

Fancy yellow diamonds are diamonds which have taken on a yellow tone through natural interruptions in their formation process.

Diamonds that are naturally this colour are extremely rare, and the colour is usually caused by nitrogen  that appears whilst the diamond is being formed.

Exceptionally white diamonds are in high demand. A flawless clear diamond which is cut in a flattering way can fetch a great deal of money once set into a piece of jewellery, while a discoloured diamond is not considered as valuable. Fancy diamonds should not be confused with discoloured yellowish stones. 
Fancy diamonds such as yellow diamonds are graded differently to white diamonds, the hue and intensity of the colour are determined. i.e. Fancy Vivid.
