Wedding Wednesday: Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

Once in a blue moon a diamond enters our Geneva Seal home that is so breathtaking, so beautiful, and so sexy that we just. Can't. Take it.

Yellow diamonds do that to me. The symbolic essence of the yellow color is renewal, hope, cheerfulness and sunlight. A yellow diamond ring, whether given to your love as an engagement ring, gifted to yourself or someone in your life is said to bring blessings of joy and prosperity.

Without a doubt, it would be a perfect gesture if you propose to your love with a yellow diamond engagement ring. Diamonds don't have to be white. Rock a yellow center stone and shine on.

There are different shades of yellow diamonds. Natural fancy yellow diamonds (or canary diamonds) come in varying color shades - like faint, very light, light, fancy, fancy intense, fancy vivid, and fancy deep.

The most intriguing part about yellow diamonds is that no two yellow stones are ever alike, fulfilling the engagement ring trend of more unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. The fascinating and distinct hue and brilliance of each yellow diamond is quite different, as opposed to the many similar looking white diamonds.

Choice of metal will depend on your taste. You may choose to set the yellow diamond in either contrasting white gold or platinum. Monochrome hues of white gold and platinum impart a sharpened visual impact to a yellow diamond. Yellow metal can also be a choice, but it doesn’t do justice to the brilliance of a yellow diamond.

Choosing the setting is tough and Geneva Seal in Chicago keeps in mind your loves lifestyle. Each ring is unique and special, deciding on the setting of your loves engagement ring has to do with their taste and way of life. However, open and clear setting do justice to yellow diamond engagement rings.

It’s crucial to let in plenty of light under the diamond for maximum brilliance from all angles. This is best accomplished by prong setting that looks extremely compelling and elegant, while tension setting adds a dramatic touch.

On the contrary, I will not suggest bezel setting and channel setting for yellow stones, as these settings cover a big portion of the stone causing a dull appearance. Go for bezel only if your love has an active lifestyle.

Shine on.
