Colored Diamonds

Dear Leslie,
I’ve noticed some pieces of jewelry that have colored diamonds. Can you tell me more about them? Thanks!

Normally when we shop for a diamond, we try to find the most perfect stone that we can find and afford. That means we’re looking for the lack of color and imperfections. However diamonds naturally come in all shades, hues and colors of the rainbow. Popular colors include pinks, blues, yellows, oranges, greens, to elegant brown tones. High quality naturally colored diamonds are rare and therefore very expensive. However there is a whole world of affordable fancy color diamonds that add a unique touch to jewelry. Affordable fancy color diamonds are created by treating less desirable diamonds. You can assume that any affordable fancy color diamond has been treated in some way.
