Fancy Green Diamonds | Fancy Diamond Education

Fancy green diamonds are the second rarest fancy color diamonds, after red diamonds. Since green is a mixture of blue and yellow, green colored diamonds commonly range from blue-green to yellow-green. Some fancy green diamonds can also display hints of grey or brown as well. Green diamonds that exhibit no traces of other colors are incredibly rare and valuable.

The grading scale for green diamonds is as follows: faint green, very light green, light green, fancy light green, fancy green, fancy intense green, fancy dark green, fancy deep green, and fancy vivid green.

A green diamond is formed over millions of years, after it has been infused with beta and gamma rays, which contributes to the diamond’s green hue. In some cases, the green diamond’s color exists only on the surface, which means that over time, the color will fade. Therefore, pure green diamonds are few and far between.

James Allen offers a variety of fancy green diamonds, in all shapes and carat sizes. Green diamonds are a great option when looking to add to your diamond selection and appear especially striking when set in a platinum or white gold setting.
