Accessorizing With Colored Diamonds
As we all know, making a splash in the fashion stakes doesn’t just mean having the correct dress with matching shoes; it goes way beyond that. Makeup and hairstyle are also part of that certain je ne sais quoi that help transform a partial look into the complete look, however it is the accessories that really can transform a look from ho-hum to wow.
And when we talk of accessories, it is the sparkling kind that really makes a splash. The appropriate handbag or clutch may be a nice touch but the right type of bling is what sets you apart. Jewelry is the ultimate accessory and the ultimate jewelry accessory is natural fancy color diamonds.
Although fancy color diamonds have been sought for centuries by royalty, the very wealthy, and those in the know, it is only in the last few years that they have really started to attract attention and find a broader market. This is possibly due to the fact that, till this very day, there are many people who don’t know that fancy color diamonds exist or that they are actually much more precious than colorless diamonds – 10,000 times rarer, actually.

As is the case with most trends though, they start at the upper echelon and work their way down to the masses. When asking J-Lo, Beyoncé, Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, or Blake Lively what is their preferred “best friend,” chances are that you will receive an answer with diamonds – fancy color diamonds. It is not only the women who are getting in on this as P-Diddy and even George Soros have been hit by the fancy color diamond bug – P-Diddy to accessorize, Soros for his fiancé.
Soros is no sucker though. One of the greatest investors in history, this multi-billionaire, like other wealthy purchasers of fancy color diamonds realizes what a great investment they are. How’s this for a line, “Honey, they’re not a waste of money, they’re an investment. Just ask George Soros.”
Fancy color diamonds are extremely easy to accessorize. Their colors run the gamut of the color range and with many exhibiting secondary colors and different hues making every stone unique.
Fancy color diamonds come in the following colors – pink, blue, red, purple, and violet; all of which are extremely rare. The finest examples of these stones sell for in excess of USD1.5 million per carat. Colors such as green, orange, and chameleon are less rare and less costly. Yellow diamonds or canaries are the most common color but, depending on the saturation of the yellow, when you buy yellow diamonds they can be very expensive. Other colors include black, white, and gray.
So, beautiful, rare, different, unique, used in every piece of jewelry (or even in mobile phones and their cases), fancy color diamonds are the ultimate accessory. When accessorizing with fancy color diamonds you know that you will never clash with someone else as no two stones are the same.
Perhaps the only downside to accessorizing with color diamonds is which color to choose, for be warned, once bitten by this bug one is never enough.
