Fancy or Not: What Sets Fancy Diamonds Apart?

Fancy or Not: What Sets Fancy Diamonds Apart?

When it comes to diamonds, we all know they're a girl's best friend. But did you know that there's a distinction between fancy and non-fancy diamonds? Here is the breakdown for you in plain English, without the fancy jargon.


Fancy Diamonds


Let's start with fancy diamonds. These little beauties are anything but ordinary. Unlike the classic white diamonds we're used to, fancy diamonds come in an array of colours. Think crisp blues, vibrant pinks, and even intense yellows and greens. They're like a rainbow captured in a precious gemstone!

Now, when we say "fancy," it is simply a way of saying they're coloured diamonds. Coloured diamonds are extremely rare and therefore desirable. Fancy diamonds have different levels of colour intensity, from subtle hints to vivid shades. It's like they have their own little personalities, each one as unique as the person wearing it.

Non-Fancy Diamonds

On the other hand, we have non-fancy diamonds. These are the classic, timeless white diamonds. The ones that sparkle like crazy and never go out of style. They are all about that blinding brilliance and flawless clarity. Non-fancy diamonds are graded based on the 4Cs: carat weight, colour, clarity, and cut. It is all about finding the perfect balance to make them shine their brightest.


Now, whether you prefer fancy or non-fancy diamonds, it's all about your personal taste. Do you want a burst of colour or a more understated elegance that whispers sophistication? The choice is yours, and there's no wrong answer. It's all about finding that perfect match.
