Fancy Colored Orange Diamonds
Generally when people think of colored diamonds, their mind would jump to pinks, blues, and yellows, the commonly talked about fancy colors. Only a few would think to mention orange diamonds, a beautiful and underrated diamond color.
Many of the orange diamond shades on the market have strong yellow or brown modifiers. In truth, to be classified as a true orange there must be a complete absence of brown in the stone. These pure pumpkin-shade oranges are very rare and are usually sold as collectors’ items, at prices exceeding yellow diamonds – at Sotheby’s New York, an 8.93 carat fancy intense orange sold for about $1.9 million US.
Common descriptions for orange diamonds include amber, autumn, burnt orange, and cognac. Orange diamond rough is primarily mined in Australia and South Africa.
