Mellow Yellow Ziamonds


Ziamond has a love for jewelry and the sparkle and brilliance brought to jewelry by diamonds, especially colored diamonds. Colored diamonds evoke the feelings of magic and miracles. For centuries Canary diamonds have been cherished for their dramatic yet subtle appeal. The many shades of Canary diamonds will range from cooler shades of yellow (light yellow to a pale light green) to warmer ones (yellow/orange) and are highly coveted in all ranges and hues. While Canary diamonds come in many shades of yellow, the most notable variation is called the intense canary or also known as vivid. When Ziamond designs a custom piece of canary jewelry, we always utilize canaries in the intense to vivid color range. Remember, Ziamond stones are man made and created in a laboratory, so we do dot have to contend with Mother Nature and her uncontrollable elements that can alter that perfect color or clarity of a gemstone. Ziamond is well known not only for the colors of our canary stones but the fantastic cutting and faceting by our diamond cutters that unleash the stones immense color saturation and scintillation. Adding a custom Ziamond canary piece into your jewelry collection will surely bring you joy and compliments for years to come. No other simulant will compare.
