Classified as a defect yet high in value, yellow diamonds have become the choice of those with discerning taste. The allure behind these brilliant stones lies in their exclusivity. Tiffany McCauley, Philadelphia market group director for Tiffany & Co., explains the significance behind the color: “The rarest of the rare, fancy yellow diamonds of radiant color and charisma are distinguished by a color that is as pure as sunlight, with a level of saturation and intensity that places them among the world’s finest and most sought-after diamonds. Only about one in 10,000 diamonds is a fancy color, and very few meet Tiffany’s standards.” For an unforgettable engagement, such precious stones are a natural choice.
