Gray diamonds are a thing. And believe it or not, they’re natural too.
Most people have never seen a truly gray diamond (one dug out of the Earth gray, not heat treated)…
And they’re truly impressive and different.
Take a peek at this fancy gray diamond below:
Very Cool, right?
Gray is perfect for the modern world. Something neutral. Something goth. Something out of the ordinary (Stranger Things)…
So what Causes these Diamonds to go Gray?
The gray color is natural, like stated. But it’s caused by the high concentration of hydrogen, and sometimes even boron. Just like all fancies naturally colored by different minerals, irons, and chemicals in the Earth millions of years ago, fancy gray diamonds are extremely rare, and can range from light gray, to dark gray (Darker is better, as shown above).

The funny thing about Fancy Diamonds…
Is the fact that clarity doesn’t matter!
So much so, that natural fancy diamond’s clarity is actually “omitted“.
Look at the GIA diamond reports that come with them, it’s not even listed.
What matters the most in fancy diamonds is the COLOR!
These fancy colors are graded by the actual color, the distribution of that color, and the amount of that color displayed.
It’s truly Fascinating and Unique.
Have one set into an engagement ring and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that people will rave about…
Why not go Gray?
With all the colored diamonds on the market, owning a true fancy (not enhanced like most of the diamonds in the mall jewelry stores), is something you’ll never regret.
