Interesting facts about yellow diamonds
- Let’s start with the main thing: yellow diamonds are mined mainly in Australia, Botswana, Tanzania, as well as in Russia. True, this does not happen often, so every stone found is an unprecedented success.
- Yellow diamonds are rated according to three criteria: size, clarity, and color. And if even a novice gemologist can figure out the first two parameters, then the last one is more difficult. Yellow diamonds have as many as six shades: Fancy Light Yellow, Fancy Yellow, Fancy Intense Yellow, Fancy Vivid Yellow, Fancy Deep Yellow and Fancy Dark Yellow, and the only way to determine the true one is through a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certificate. Actually, that is why all Mercury diamonds weighing 1 carat or more undergo mandatory international certification.
- The most prominent yellow diamond to this day is the 545.67 carat Golden Jubilee Diamond, found in 1985 at the Premier mines in South Africa. After a two-year cutting process, the diamond was presented as a gift to King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the 40th anniversary of his coronation.
