Colored diamonds are a separate category, priced according to market demand rather than an industry index. The gemís value depends first on color intensity, with deeper hues more highly valued, then size, cut, and clarity.

Guide to Colored Diamonds
Yellow - Yellow diamonds are rare; they pick up where the white diamond color scale ends, with Very Light Yellow, also known as Cape diamonds, and become more intensely hued, depending on the presence of nitrogen, ranging up to Fancy Deep Yellow.
Brown - The lightest shade is called Cognac, ranging up to darker hued Champagne diamonds.
Pink - Pink diamonds are extremely rare, second only to red diamonds. Their rarity and popularity place them in a higher price range, making them Type II, highly desired by collectors. Experts debate the source of their color.
Purple - Pure purple diamonds are very rare and come in two categories, violet (in the blue-grey spectrum), or purple (with reddish pink hues). The colors come from varied levels of hydrogen.
Blue - Blue diamonds are very rare, and most come from a few mines in South Africa and Australia. They often contain boron, which lends gray-blue or green-blue secondary hues.
Green - Green diamonds are considered a symbol of nature's harmony and fertility, and are found in eight color intensity grades with many possible overtones and secondary hues. The green color comes from exposure to radioactivity.
