In nature, diamonds exhibit a wider variety of colors than any other gemstone and are the only gem that occurs in all 12 basic colors: pink, red, orange, brown, yellow, olive, green, blue, purple, gray, black and white. Fancy color diamonds are unique because they offer the intriguing colors of other precious gemstones but are the only gem to offer this color with the brilliance, durability, rarity and mistique of diamonds. Reds and violets are the rarest with only a few known stones in existence. Pinks are also very rare. Out of tens of millions of carats mined per year, only 50-100 carats are pink with the vast majority weighing less than one carat.

Because of their rarity, the most expensive diamonds in the world are fancy colored diamonds. Recently, many prominent public figures have brought fancy colored diamonds into the headlines with their beautiful and unusual engagement rings, earrings and pendants (more on that below.)

Or perhaps you've heard of the recent blue diamond ring sold at Sotheby's for a mere $9.5 million? The rare 7.03-carat flawless blue diamond is one of the few blue diamonds ever found. If nine mill is a little out of your budgetary range, we can offer you the fancy colored diamond experience with a much more reasonable price tag!

Yellow Diamonds are cherished gemstones for their gorgeous, sun-radiant colors, exotic appearance and mystical power. Our richly colored Gemesis stones range from a deep and warm yellow-gold to yellow-orange (check out our color chart below) and add a whole other element to your jewelry collection. Compared to other rare fancy colored diamonds, yellow diamonds enhance your style in a casual and inviting way. Often considered the "lucky" gemstone, we feel particularly fortunate to share with you the preciousness of our find.

What exactly is a Gemesis fancy colored diamond?

Gemesis cultured diamonds are real, eco-friendly diamonds grown in a lab rather than mined from the earth. They're optically and chemically identical to their natural counterparts. The main difference is the price; Gemesis diamonds are a fraction of the cost of natural fancy color diamonds and, with our current sale, they are now an exceptional value.

And each Gemesis cultured diamond comes with a grading certificate from the International Gemological Institute indicating its color, clarity, carat weight, serial number and laser inscription on the diamond itself. This certificate is your assurance that you are getting an authentic Gemesis cultured diamond.

Fancy colored diamonds have been a major fashion trend since Jennifer Lopez unveiled her engagement ring to the world a few years ago (see photo below.) Since then, they have increased dramatically in popularity.

In 2004, Joseph Schubach Jewelers along with the Gemesis Corporation proudly designed, manufactured and donated this piece to the MusiCares, a foundation that helps music people in times of need.

The Long Standing Power of a Diamond

The diamond has held a certain mystique in our collective unconscious for centuries. The Romans believed that diamonds were splinters from falling stars. The Greeks regarded these mystical gems as tears of the gods. The word diamond is a derivation of the Greek word "adamas," meaning unconquerable, due to its strength.

The diamond became a symbol of love toward the end of the 15th century, when Austrian Archduke Maximilian gave the first diamond engagement ring to his beloved. The ring was placed on the fourth finger of her left hand, because that finger was believed to course with the vein of love that connects directly to the heart. For centuries afterward, diamonds represented long-lasting love, purity and endurance.

In 1938, De Beers, the world renowned diamond company, hired the New York-based ad agency N.W. Ayer to develop a phrase that would forever encapsulate the diamond experience. This brilliant slogan would resonate with the public consciousness for the next century and signify the eternal love a natural diamond represents. This slogan was intrinsically entwined with the gem itself and the story was born:

"A diamond is forever."




The Birth of Lab Created Diamonds

Since then, diamonds have come a long way, baby.

When the Florida-based Gemesis company figured out a way to create high-quality diamonds, indistinguishable from their mined counterparts (and actually exceeding in some characteristics!) within the confines of their lab instead of earth-damaging mines in politically fractured countries, consumers were given a high-quality, socially and ecologically smart option that not only offered the full diamond experience (because Gemesis diamonds are, in fact, real diamonds) but for a fraction of the price. A "green" diamond was born! The jewelry world was changed irrevocably.

Natural Diamonds versus Gemesis

If you think Gemesis is just today's version of Cubic Zirconia, think again. These are actual diamonds through and through, not a diamond simulant like CZ or moissanite. These cultured diamonds have the identical carbon-based chemical properties of natural diamonds and are created in a similar way that natural diamonds are made using the perfect combination of heat, pressure and the right set of ingredients.

How do Laboratory-Grown Diamonds and Natural Diamonds Compare?

• Both have the same physical, chemical and optical properties. •Both have the same hardness, specific gravity, refractive index and dispersion factor. •Both are polished using the same equipment and techniques. •Both have the same brilliance, sparkle, fire and scintillation. •Both are diamonds. •It's virtually impossible for a jeweler or gemologist to detect a Gemesis diamond from a natural diamond without proper scientific equipment.

How Laboratory-Grown Diamonds and Natural Diamonds - the Price Difference

Natural fancy color diamonds are out of site price-wise, costing upwards of $1 million a carat for a natural pink diamond. Fancy colored yellow diamonds are, as a rule of thumb, twice as expensive as a white diamond.

Gemesis cultured diamonds cost less than half the price of a similar natural fancy color diamond...again, possessing the same qualities.

Here's an example:

Natural Yellow Diamond 1 carat $10,000
Gemesis Yellow Diamond 1 carat $5,000
Joseph Schubach Gemesis Sale Price 1 carat $3,000


More on Fancy Colored Diamonds - a Unique Diamond Experience

So what makes fancy colored diamonds so special?

Fancy colored diamonds have existed as long as traditional "white" diamonds. One of the most well-known fancy colored diamond is the famous Hope Diamond:


(above) The Hope Diamond is a large, 45.52 carats fancy deep blue diamond, currently housed in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C.


Fancy colored diamonds are unique because of their rarity. Only a fraction of diamonds found are gem quality and only a fraction of those are fancy color and gem quality. Fancy color diamonds are also unique because they offer the intriguing colors of other precious gemstones but are the only gem to offer deep, vivid color with the brilliance, durability and rarity of diamonds.

The Fancy Color Diamond Trend - Why Now?

Well, Jennifer Lopez had a little to do with it! We all remember the pink and white fancy colored diamond ring Ben Affleck gave her for their engagement (pictured below.)

But more than celebrity endorsement, companies such as Gemesis have made fancy colored diamonds affordable while maintaining a fantastically high pedigree. Because of this, Gemesis cultured fancy colored diamonds have witnessed a dramatic surge in growth over the past few years. With Gemesis cultured diamonds, people can experience extravagance without the sky-high price tag.

Another factor? Eco-consciousness. As stated earlier, people are beginning to understand the global implications of diamond mining. People in the know realize that these lab-produced diamonds are more than comparable to their natural counterparts, without the ecological and political damage.

And lastly - choice. With an affordable diamond, the buyer can increase their jewelry collection without breaking the bank! Many people could never experience the joy of wearing a mined fancy colored diamond. Now, that door is open!

The Vibrant Hues of our Gemesis Diamonds:

Let's talk about the color for a moment, shall we? The Gemesis cultured diamonds we possess are a deep, saturated color - ranging from a pure, clean lemon yellow (or Canary yellow) to a warm,vibrant marmalade orange. These are rich, intensely colored gemstones that look like the shades of a summer sunset. If you choose a lighter yellow, you will capture the essence of the elusive yellow diamond, a rarity in nature. If you want something more fiery and hot in color, then an molten orange shade may be for you.



Did you know:

• Diamonds exhibit a wider variety of colors than any other gemstone and are the only gem that occurs in all 12 basic colors: pink, red, orange, brown, yellow, olive, green, blue, purple, gray, black and white.
• The blue Hope diamond in the Smithsonian Institute is the most famous fancy colored diamond.
• Reds and violets are the rarest fancy colored diamonds with only a few known stones in existence. Pinks are also very rare. Out of tens of millions of carats mined per year, only 50-100 carats are pink with the vast majority weighing less than one carat.
• Cut (proportion) is a major factor to color. A fancy color diamond will be cut to enhance the color, therefore typical cutting proportions do not necessarily apply.
•  True fancy yellow is the most popular and affordable fancy color and a good place to start your collection. Yellows, however, still need to be true "fancy yellow" to be valuable.
• Diamonds obtain their color from elements such as nitrogen (yellows, orange, pink, red), boron (blues) and hydrogen as well as through defects in the crystal structure.
• The key qualities of diamond color relate to the intensity, evenness and saturation of the coloration. Marbled shades or those that appear washed-out are less valuable.
