There are all sorts of debates that people will have for the rest of time. Which flavor of cola, what type of breakfast meat and who do you watch for late night are all situations where we just have to agree to disagree. When it comes to jewelry and gem stones, however, the consensus is that there is nothing as beautiful as a perfectly cut, crystal clear diamond, right? Wrong…especially this time of year. The perfect solution to your gift giving dilemma when it comes to the cool, crisp months of autumn is to find fashion jewelry that features stunning colored diamonds. If this is the first time you’ve heard about them, you are not alone.

Thanks to engagement rings and other styles of bridal jewelry and wedding jewelry, traditional diamonds make up such a huge percentage of the marketplace that many people don’t even know about colored diamonds. Unfortunately, in some of the cases that they do discover them, the diamonds they are being introduced to have been artificially manipulated with color added to them. The truth is that colored diamonds occur naturally and can have the same clarity that traditional diamonds have. This allows for designers and craftspeople to create styles of jewelry, ranging from necklaces and pendants to earrings and bracelets, that present bold new looks that you may never have considered before.

 

Besides all of the attention given to wedding jewelry, another reason why these naturally occurring colored diamonds are far less well known than their crystal cousins is because, as you might imagine, they are also far rarer. Just like it takes very precise conditions to create diamonds in general, the situation for a diamond to have a brilliant yellow or a smoldering orange color to it is far more complex. Basically, the result of a gigantic environmental lottery, some colors are so rare that only a few carats-worth of them have been found. That is the perfect reason to make colored diamonds your next purchase this fall. With everybody traveling across the country to see the beauty of the changing leaves, imagine if you had those same colors hanging on a necklace or wrapped around your wrist.
