Fancy coloured diamonds in the lab


Sharing some pretty Fancy coloured diamonds we have in our London lab for Diamond Reports.
Deep and rare shades are graded higher than pale shades.

While colourless diamonds are graded and evaluated for characteristics like brilliance and fire, fancy coloured diamonds are graded for colour depth and intensity.  

Here we have a 1.80 carat fancy deep brownish yellowish orange cushion cut diamond, a 1.25 carat fancy deep browish yellowish yellow pear shape diamond and a 2.21 carat fancy intense yellow ocal shape diamond.
