Canary Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings: Hot Wedding Bling for 2013

Canary Yellow Diamond Engagement Ring from Jonathan's Fine Jewelers

Passion, inner strength, abundance – the canary yellow diamond engagement ring is poignantly symbolic and enchanting to behold. This stunning gemstone is also a hot new trend in wedding rings for 2013.

Jonathan’s Fine Jewelers in Houston Texas agrees that canary yellow diamonds are the latest craze. They have this to say about the rarity of these gems: “Yellow diamonds are one of the most common colored diamonds, but they are still considered rare… the intensity of the color will depend on the rareness of the stone, and generally they are called ‘fancy colored diamonds’.”

Whether referred to as “fancy” yellow or “canary” yellow, this beautiful stone makes an elegant engagement ring setting and an especially awe-inducing proposal with an element of surprise.

What creates the yellow color in a diamond? When the diamond contains nitrogen molecules – considered an impurity – it reflects blue light, causing the yellow coloring of the gem. The degree of yellow coloring depends on the nitrogen concentration and the size of the stone.

Front Jewelers has an extensive collection of canary yellow diamond engagement rings “packed with fiery sparkle,” including some unique settings in black gold.
