Champagne diamonds fit into that category of fancy diamonds. These are diamonds of various colors such as Pink, Yellow, Green, Blue and of course Champagne.
The champagne diamonds are graded on a scale of C1 the lightest possible, through to C7 which would be the darkest. The other colors have similar gradings.
The intensity of the color in these diamonds can range from a faint barely seen color to a deep striking hue and they all look very striking and beautiful. As a rule the deeper the hue the more valuable the diamond is considered to be.
When seeking a champagne diamond it is important to shop around and look at the various hues available. It might be that a darker hue suits you more than a lighter one, or visa versa. Also the setting for the diamond needs to be taken into consideration when you have found the right color diamond for you. Is it to be yellow or white gold? Or perhaps platinum might be more suitable.
Ensuring that you get a good quality diamond is most important. Selecting out the best jeweler in your city is one way. Also you can browse champagne diamonds online and get a good idea of what is available and what sort of costs you would be up for a particular grade. Keep in mind champagne diamonds can be quite expensive as they are far more rare than the, dare I say it, ordinary diamonds.
A proper independent appraisal of the diamond from a gemological laboratory is a good way of establishing the grade and value of a diamond. There are many gemological laboratories around that will do an independent appraisal of your diamond for a nominal cost. Even if you have to send your diamond away it would be still be worth while. You want to have an accurate assessment, not only to satisfy yourself the diamond is genuine and have an accurate description of the grading but also for insurance purposes and any possible resale at a later date.
Champagne diamonds can look absolutely stunning in the right setting so it pays to spend some time browsing and doing some due diligence before settling on one particular diamond.
