About Canary Diamonds

Most diamonds of value are thought to have a lack of color or colorless but diamonds with strong color, or canary diamonds or fancy colored diamonds, are more rare and often more valuable.  Fancy colored diamonds come is many colors such as yellows, reds, pinks, blues, greens, purples and many shades in between.  The rarest are pink and red. Canary diamonds are yellow in color.

The fancy color in diamonds is produced during the diamond formation from many factors such as impurities , trace elements or radiation affecting the diamonds creation.

How are canary diamonds and colored diamonds graded?
Canary diamonds and fancy colored diamonds are grades in 2 ways: "hue" and "intensity."  "Hue" is the basic color of the diamond, yellow, blue, green etc.  "Intensity" is the degree to which the color is present. The more intense the color, the rarer and more expensive the diamond.

GIA uses nine categories for color grades

  1. Faint (L-N)
  2. Very Light (O-V)
  3. Light (W-Z)
  4. Fancy Light (Past Z)
  5. Fancy
  6. Fancy Intense
  7. Fancy Vivid

What does a Canary Yellow Diamond mean?
As you can see on the chart canary yellow is not a color grade for fancy yellow diamonds.  Canary yellow diamond  is a non-gemological term used to describe yellow diamonds.  Canary yellow diamonds is a term that that the public refers to a "very" yellow diamonds such as fancy intense yellow.  You can assume that canary yellow diamonds  and yellow diamonds are interchangeable terms.  So, all yellow diamonds are somewhat "canary yellow"  diamonds to varying degrees.  (For example light canary yellow diamonds.)  You will not see the term "canary yellow" on a lab certificate, but the public still uses this term to describe "very" yellow diamonds.

What about clarity in canary diamonds or fancy colored diamonds?
Clarity is not as important a factor in canary diamonds or fancy colored diamonds as in white or colorless diamonds.  In fact, many color grading certificates only grade the color of the diamond and not the clarity.
Many times feathers or small crystal inclusions appear the same color as the diamond and don't diminish the coloring of the diamond.  In some circumstances they may create the appearance of more brilliance.  
As long as the diamond is considered "eye clean" to an untrained eye clarity is not as crucial.  However, fancy colored diamonds with clarities of VS or better are more rare and command a higher price. 

Color treatments in fancy colored and canary diamonds
Irradiated diamonds are a common form of treating not so colored diamonds to appear fancy in color.   This is done through irradiation followed by high heat. This process is usually permanent, but  may change is high heat is used during setting or repairs.
Gemesis cultured man made colored diamonds are grown in a laboratory to make them affordable.  Natural diamond of similar color are much more expensive.
