Yesterday’s profile on fancy yellow diamonds got us craving more canary. Luckily, we’re feasting our eyes & bling loving hearts today on some of the most fabulous engagement ring eye candy we’ve devoured in quite some time. Today is all yellow diamond engagement rings, all the way. Besides the yellow diamond celebrity engagement rings we mentioned yesterday, women who love a yellow diamond engagement ring crave something different, something opulent, and something warm. Rare, breathtaking and absolutely captivating, a fancy yellow diamond is a prized possession, and today we’re giving you5 glorious options to rock on your finger!
First up, this stunning 2.02 carat oval. Its soft, buttery richness is amplified by a warm gold bezel setting, while its bling factor is boosted by a cut cornered halo of white diamond pave. A micropave split shank gives this ring major presence on your finger, and even the gallery boasts a little micropave, adding another .63 carats of diamonds.
This ring takes the same setting, but loses any negative space by putting a larger diamond in the middle, and this one is cushion cut for our modern brides. The grand total for yellow diamonds on this ring: 2.62cts, while the white diamond total jumps to 1.20ctw.
This fancy yellow, another cushion cut, takes on a decidedly more radiant shape. Its yellow gold bezel is cut cornered like a radiant would be, but the cushion cut suits the diamond better and lets all 2.26cts of it shine. We love the rounded corners on the micropave frame, and rows of micropave on the thick shank, adding .87ctw of white diamonds.
We’re smitten witht his two tone vintage inspired fancy yellow engagement ring. This is one of the most unique settings we’ve ever seen, thanks to its two-tone, carved and diamond studded gallery and its play on traditional engagement ring elements. Let’s start with the center stone, a 1.71ct cushion cut fancy yellow set snugly into yellow gold. Its “halo” is a radiant shaped white gold border with round white diamonds embedded, a play on the micropave and pave above. The shoulders, where you’d at first glance see half moons, trapezoids or trillions, are in fact several light fancy yellow round brilliants set into formation. And again – this gallery is unlike any we’ve seen recently. You get a bonus pic:
Last, but by no means least, may we present one of our favorite things: a big, huge yellow diamond.
Ah, an 8.02 ct light fancy yellow in all its glory. The internal characteristics on this giant rock earn it an SI3 in clarity (which would render a colorless diamond practically industrial grade). However the yellow tint of this diamond masks some and gives the visible inclusions an antique feel, almost like mercury glass. This old fashioned vibe is played up by a gorgeous frame of white diamond pave that almost reminds us of a Victorian locket. The triple split shank also boasts some pave, making this ring sparkly from every angle.
