Availability of Diamonds

Currently, diamonds are available in various colors and sizes. Each color has different growth characteristics, which affects availability.

Lifetime Trade-up

All of our diamonds include a complimentary lifetime trade-up, so if your ideal size, color or shape is not currently available, you can always purchase an available diamond and trade it in once your ideal diamond becomes available. The trade-up applies 100% of what you paid toward the purchase of any other diamond.

Yellow & Orange Diamonds

Yellow diamonds grow the quickest of all the colors, taking around 5-6 days, and are available up to three carats. We have achieved numerous size and quality goals for our yellow diamonds, so we are focusing much of our current efforts toward blue and white diamonds. Due to this, our production of yellows will be reduced, though they are still available. Please check our inventory to see if we have what you are looking for, but if not, please contact us.

A few years ago we grew diamonds in orange and yellow-orange colors. While we still have some in-stock, we are not actively producing diamonds with an orange modifying color, although they may be made on request.

The majority of our yellows will be available between the "fancy yellow" and "fancy vivid yellow" color ranges. The yield from a yellow rough diamond is best suited for square shapes, so you will see many of them available, though most shapes are available.

Canary Colors

Canary yellow diamond
Typical canary yellow color.
The most common gem-quality colored mined diamonds are pale yellows, usually called 'canary yellow'. These range from a very light yellow to fancy light yellow. We have produced some 'canary' colors, but they are a pale or washed-out color and usually show color zoning. For these reasons, we focus most of our yellows toward the more saturated and desirable fancy intense and fancy vivid yellow colors.

Melee Sizes and Matched Sets

We have many yellows available in matched pairs and sizes under .50cts for center diamonds, matched side stones or pave settings, and also offer custom jewelry design to create your perfect ring. Please contact us if you have an interest in matched suites or sizes and shapes not listed online.

Blue Diamond

Blue diamonds grow much slower than yellows, usually taking 7-10 days. The largest we have grown blues are around 1.50 carat. The yield from a rough blue is best suited for a round brilliant. Though we can cut most shapes, the polished weight may be lower for non-rounds, especially princess cuts.

Much of our current production is focused on blues, with the majority being available between "fancy light blue" and "fancy vivid blue" colors. We are not actively producing deep and dark blue shades, although, some do become available and they can be made on request.

Melee Sizes and Matched Sets

Two blue diamonds
We have many blues available in matched pairs and sizes under .30cts for center diamonds, matched side stones or pave settings, and also offer custom jewelry design to create your perfect ring. Please contact us if you have an interest in matched suites or sizes and shapes not listed online.

White / Colorless Diamond

Five loose white diamonds
White or colorless diamonds are the slowest and most difficult of all colors to grow. Gem-quality white diamonds can be made around 1.50 carats, though that is currently an upper limit, rather than an average.

While whites are in the highest demand, due primarily to the vast availability of mined white diamonds and ingrained marketing campaigns, we encourage considering a much more rare and unique blue or yellow diamond. Many of our customers who initially sought a white diamond end up happier with a light blue or intense yellow.

We proudly offer a lifetime trade-up on all of our diamonds. If your ideal diamond is not something we have in-stock, you can purchase something close. Then at any point in the future, trade it in at 100% what you paid toward that ideal diamond, once it becomes available.

Caution Icon
A word of caution: Very few white synthetic diamonds are available on the market, and those that are, weigh less than two carats in most cases. These colorless diamonds are very difficult to grow, with limited availability, from any producer. Prices are usually just a little less than a mined colorless diamond. If you see a product claiming it is a white lab diamond for significantly less than a mined diamond would cost, caveat emptor, as there is a strong possibility it may be a simulant.

Pink, Green, Purple and Other Colors

Eight pink, red, green and purple diamonds
Diamonds are currently grown as yellow, blue or white, and these colors are our primary focus. Other colors are achievable by using post-growth treatment of as-grown yellows. The post-growth treatment is most successful with smaller, lower saturation yellows and can be used to make pink, red, purple and green colors.

In-stock pink, purple, red and green diamonds can be seen here. You can learn more about our treated colors and may contact us if there is a certain color you would like that is not available.
