If you're looking for a unique engagement ring or a stunning pair of earrings, you can't go wrong with champagne diamonds. There's a reason diamonds have reigned supreme for decades; they're extremely durable and full of fire. With a champagne diamond you get these qualities at a lower price point. Champagne diamonds range in color from very light yellow to very dark brown. Brown is the oldest and most common fancy diamond color; brown diamonds were set in rings by the Romans as early as the second century.
Because champagne diamonds are more affordable than white diamonds, you can get a bigger stone for a lower price. And, if you choose a cognac or chocolate diamond in the fancy brown color range, you can select a stone with a few inclusions and save even more. The rich hue of fancy brown diamonds masks inclusions without sacrificing brilliance or fire. The gorgeous fancy brown diamond below, custom made by Imperial Jewelry Company, has an inclusion that would be highly visible in a white diamond, but because of the fancy brown color of the stone, the inclusion is barely noticeable.
When it comes to champagne diamonds, color is everything. To choose your diamond, focus on the quality of the color, such as vibrant yellow or warm, golden brown with full saturation (the color should be consistent throughout the stone).
