Types of Yellow Diamonds

Yellow diamonds are primarily sorted into categories based on the intensity and vividness of the yellow hue of the gemstone. The categories are as follows:

  • Fancy Light Yellow Diamond
  • Fancy Yellow Diamond
  • Fancy Dark Yellow Diamond
  • Fancy Deep Yellow Diamond
  • Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond
  • Fancy Vivid Yellow Diamond

As a general rule of thumb, the more intense the yellow colouration, the more expensive and sought after the diamond will be.

Consequently, a more pale or lighter-coloured diamond might be a better choice if you’re looking for a more reasonable deal in terms of pricing.

Types of Yellow Diamond Earrings

You will often find yellow diamonds in three types of earrings, listed below.

Stud Earrings

The classic stud is the most simple and timeless way to showcase diamond gemstones. They’re also endlessly customisable to suit most tastes and preferences.

For example, stud earrings are an excellent way to showcase many different shapes and cuts of yellow diamonds. Round, oval, princess and cushion cut are some of the most common, but more unusual shapes such as heart and asscher cut diamonds can also work very well.

Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings put a more contemporary twist on earrings by mounting several diamonds in a row or cluster that dangle from each ear lobe.

These can be mounted using yellow gold, white gold, silver or platinum, depending on the intensity of the diamonds and how intense you’d like the yellow hues to come across.

Hoop earrings can also have one, two or three rows of diamonds, depending on your budget.

Drop Earrings

Drop earrings are one of the most eye-catching and attention-grabbing earring types available. When paired with yellow diamonds, they can be a stunning focal point for any outfit.

These earrings often feature a centre stone with a subtle surround (or “halo”) of smaller gemstones, enhancing the natural beauty of the yellow diamond with a gentle contrast.

Closing Thoughts

When chosen carefully, yellow diamond earrings can complement both your clothing and accessory choices while letting the stunning natural qualities of the gemstone shine through.
