Diamonds have been, are and will always be eternal. Diamond engagement rings are a symbol of love and commitment, and hence men set out to search for the perfect diamond rings to go down on one knee and ask the woman they love to marry them. And it goes without mentioning that the adoring eye of a lady never ceases to admire their beauty.
While colorless diamonds have always been in fashion, yellow diamond rings are making a comeback into the diamond ring industry. Fueled by rarity, uniqueness, and a sense of nostalgia, along with an extraordinary golden shade and hue that makes them very different from the traditional colorless ones, yellow diamond rings are fast becoming popular. They are being seen as exquisite and gorgeous choices to immortalize boundless and timeless love. Oval, heart-shaped, or square-cut, yellow diamonds are making waves and stealing hearts.
The Rising Popularity of Yellow Diamond Rings
Yellow diamond engagement rings are being seen as symbols of love and hope. The gem is a symbolism of faithfulness and the yellow color stands for optimism, hope and is seen as a good sign of sunny and loving days to come. The ring shines like a summer’s day in May, and pledging yellow diamond rings to your loved one is a sign of the same and is the perfect way for couples to start off their journey of togetherness and loyalty.
But why the color yellow, one would ask. Traditionally, yellow is a colour that cannot be carried off by everybody. However that is because no one has experimented with it before. Yellow diamond rings in an extensive and eclectic variety of settings and hues are pleasing and seducing the most skeptics of the jewelry wearers today. Making a striking statement, the standout yellow stone in beautiful platinum or white gold settings takes center stage in yellow diamond rings and makes everything else fade in comparison.
Walking down the historical lane, yellow stones have traditionally been associated with royalty over the past. Yellow diamond rings hence end up making the wearer feel “royal” and exclusive. The colour is essentially caused by nitrogen impurities in the diamond’s structure while it was undergoing the process of creation; the more the nitrogen in the stone’s composition, the deeper the colour. Their intense hues make them much harder to find than white diamonds and/or craft, adding to the feeling of exclusivity.
The rising fame and reputation of the yellow diamond rings is also an offshoot of the soaring prices of white diamonds. While the appetite of the luxury goods hasn’t gone down, pockets haven’t deepened either. The fact that affordable yellow diamonds of different carats and quality have come into the foray is drawing more people towards buying them, bringing about its immense rise in popularity.
Above all, women of today want colour. White diamonds are seen as mellow and are almost lost in tradition, while their yellow equivalents are fiery and dramatic. With jewelry fashions changing over the years, yellow stones have come to become ultimate style statements.
Whether they are fancy-vivid or fancy-light in colour, yellow diamond rings have indeed won hearts and grabbed eyeballs. Sunny, optimistic and intense, yellow diamond rings are changing the very face of contemporary diamond jewellery.
