Diamond is the modern birthstone for April, so we would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about fancy colored diamonds, which are more to our taste than the colorless type: they're rarer, more valuable, and a great deal more colorful (although the colors do tend to be a little on the pale side).
Fancy colored diamonds are not a mass-market product such as those which are advertised everywhere and sold by numbers. They have more personality than that. Fancy colored diamonds are almost as much fun as colored gemstones! Like colored gemstones, each one is different. They come in fabulously expensive pale pinks and blues, pale to bright yellows, oranges, greens, and all those brown colors that are now given names like cognac and champagne. So, buy a diamond instead of a colored gemstone if you must, but at least consider a fancy colored one which will give your jewellery more character, more individuality and more color!
