Not only among the most abundant colour of Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds as found in nature but also the most popular colour amongst buyers, Natural Yellow Diamonds or when referred to by their more popular name: Canary Yellow Diamonds are deemed by all and sundry to bet the iconic coloured diamond.
The Ellendale Diamond Mine in Western Australia, which has a remaining mine life of only 18 months, has been said to account for approximately 50% of the world supply of fancy yellow diamonds.
With greater consumer education and the huge growth in popularity of Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds in general (yellow diamonds in particular) the difference between an inferior colourless diamond and a sparkling fancy Vivid diamond is something that even a novice can appreciate.
This growth in acceptance, appreciation, knowledge and demand for Natural Fancy Yellow Diamonds coupled with their drastically declining supply makes the characteristics of this investment extremely compelling.
There is a huge demand for Fancy Yellow Diamonds at auction and this is especially reflected by the high prices being paid for Fancy Yellows over the past 15 years. In fact, in December 2011, a record was set for a yellow diamond when the Sun Drop diamond was sold at Sotheby's for USD12.36 million.
Between the years 2002-2012, the price of a 1.00 carat Fancy Yellow Diamond appreciated 193% over a 5 year period and 322% over a 10 year period! This is an annualized return of 38.6% and 32.2% respectively. When you consider that this data includes the Sub Prime Mortgage Crisis of 2007/08 (when the price of yellow diamonds barely declined) this outperformance is even
Tiffany & Co. financial reports showed that since Q1 of 2010, the price per carat paid by Tiffany & Co. to Kimberly Diamonds (the operator of the Ellendale mine) for its Natural Yellow Diamonds has almost doubled to over $5,000/carat.
I found Northern Cross Diamonds because I was looking for a colored diamond for an engagement ring to propose with. There are not many companies that have colored diamonds but they have quite a few. After considering for a couple of weeks, I decided to contact them to discuss the diamond I was looking at. The guy I worked with, Stephen, was very kind and helped me with the purchase process. I even had to ask them to ship my stone across the world to China. After I received it I had no doubt about the high quality of their products. I appreciate Stephen and Northern Cross to help me to achieve my perfect proposal plan. I am very happy to have done buisness with them and I will definately recommend Northern Cross Diamonds to anyone looking to get married or who would like to add more stones for their collection. Again, thank you Stephen
Working with Northern Cross Diamonds was great! The staff was very knowledgeable and provided me with a great deal of information about the canary yellow radiant cut diamond that I purchased. They wanted to make sure that I understood everything about the stone before I made my decision. The price was very competitive, less than other diamond providers. Once I had made my decision to purchase, the process and delivery time was very quick. Now I have a beautiful and valuable diamond in my possession, thanks to Northern Cross. I hope this helps spread word about your services.
My husband and I chose NCD to assist us in finding the perfect engagement ring that would compliment my style. We mostly dealt with Stephen who was very knowledgeable and really took the time to listen to what I was looking for and offered a really great selection of options to choose from. Thank you Stephen and NCD; I couldn't be any happier with my brand new canary yellow diamond ring. You wouldn't believe the compliments and interest that people give it. I just love it!! Thank you again for everything!
