Which fancy color diamonds are most popular?

AMGAD: Yellow and pink diamonds are the most commonly sought after fancy color diamonds and most likely will continue to be for years to come.

An increased demand for orange, blue, and green colored diamonds show that these colors are trending. Since they are rare in nature, demand can shift prices upward, as supplies are limited.

Can you give us any setting tips for color diamonds?

AMGAD: The color of gold -- yellow, white, rose -- can enhance the color of the diamond. For example, the diamonds in the ring on page 4 are set in 18K yellow and white gold. Yellow gold is used to showcase the yellow diamond, enhancing its color.

Which is the rarest fancy colored diamond?

AMGAD: Red. Diamonds that are certified as "red" are so rare that most diamond dealers have never seen one. Blue is the next rarest color. Blue diamonds are almost exclusively mined in Australia and South Africa.
