Fancy Color Diamond pendant


Fancy Color diamonds are diamonds other than classic (D-Z color) diamonds. Some Fancy Color diamonds are quite beautiful - and quite rare. We custom-craft jewels for both White and Fancy Color diamonds, as well as for other precious gems.(like Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire). Dollar appreciation - past 10 years - for the genre diamonds shown in this focus spread - has been significant. We also deal in supergem Fancy Color diamonds: 5-50+ carats (see FancyColor1000.com).
