Yellow Diamonds

People either love or hate fancy yellow diamonds, also known as canary diamonds. These fancy color diamonds occur naturally, but they can also be created synthetically in the lab or their colors can be enhanced through radiation. From Wikipedia, "Yellow diamonds are more profitable because they can be made more quickly and cost less to manufacture than blue or colorless diamonds."

Natural yellow diamonds have also made their mark in history; they also range in pale, light yellows to intense, vivid yellows. The most famous are the cushion cut Tiffany Yellow diamond (287.42 Carats), the uncut Oppenheimer Diamond (253.7 Carats), the nine-sided rose cut Florentine diamond (137.27 Carats), the 3cm long Diamond Shah (88.7 Carats), and the shield shaped Sancy Diamond (55.23 Carats).
