White or clear diamonds are the most popular ones, no doubt about that and, if you’re a Sex and The City fan, I’m sure you’re familiar with the black diamond as well.

These two colors, however, aren’t the only ones out there which pretty much means they exist in almost every color.

These, so called “fancy colored diamonds” aren’t as popular as the standard, clear ones but, if you ever feel the need to get a less conventional and equally pricy “bling”, rest assured you can get your “rock” in blue, pink or even yellow!

Diamonds have been used in jewelry for maaany maaany years now and although you might feel the need to scream, “Duuuh!” and give me the what-kind-of-idiot-do-you-take-me-for look, let me just say it had nothing to do with price, shine or status symbols!
