The yellow colour of diamond is the result of nitrogen presence while the diamond is in forming process. Unlike other diamonds which are mined in the deep of the earth, canary yellow diamonds are found in natural environment. Mined yellow diamonds are not as bright as the ones which found in the ground so that mined yellow diamonds are less valuable than yellow diamonds found in the ground. Moreover, the deeper and the brighter the colour, the more expensive the yellow diamond is. Yellow diamonds usually have coloration more intense than white diamonds so that the price of yellow diamond is high. While for the white diamonds the completely colourless will be more preferable, for yellow diamonds the one having more coloration will be more preferable. Yellow diamond with ‘Z’ grade is the most expensive.
