Diamonds - Not necessarily
Fancy colored diamonds are almost as much fun as colored gemstones! Like colored gemstones, each one is different. They come in fabulously beautiful pale pinks, blues, pale to bright yellows, oranges, greens, and all those brown colors that are now given names like cognac and champagne.
The hardness of tradition and fancy colored diamonds contribute to its suitability as a gemstone. Because it can only be scratched by other diamonds, it maintains its polish extremely well. Unlike many other gems, it is well-suited to daily wear because of its resistance to abrasions.
If you're like most people, you would like to know more about how to buy a diamond. That's one of the reasons the American Gem Society came into existence over 70 years ago. Thanks to these gemological pioneers, we now have precise standards for evaluating quality diamonds, commonly known as the 4 Cs: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight. Diamonds of a different color, are called fancy colored diamonds, and fall under a different grading scale.
