About Brown Diamonds
Many people describe brown or brownish diamonds as "champagne" diamonds, presumably because it sounds more exotic, expensive and desirable. Certainly brown is not a "high preference" colour, i.e. it is not high on most people's list of favourite colours. Nevertheless fancy brown diamonds are very rare, and can be very attractive. Most fancy brown diamonds are natural rather than enhanced.
We offer on this page a small selection of fancy brown diamonds from our current or recent stock.
Rings to Follow Soon
We intend initially to make a solitaire diamond ring with each of the colours we have. We could, of course, make a diamond pendant, but we tend to specialise in rings. We could always make a pendant to order.
Other Ring Designs
We considered making a number of two-stone diamond rings, with either one white and one coloured diamond, or with two matching coloured diamonds. One of the problems is that it is difficult to find a perfectly matching pair of these coloured diamonds. Some jewellers might be content with a near match, but we aim for an excellent match. One of the most attractive ideas we had was to make a number of three stone diamond rings, firstly with a coloured diamond centre, with two smaller white diamonds, alternatively with a larger white centre diamond and two matching coloured side stones. With this design, the match between the two coloured stones does not need to be quite as precise. We could of course make other designs, such as five stone diamond rings, clusters, or eternity rings. We can always make these to order, as the possible variations are almost limitless.
Ear-Rings & Pendants
Our coloured diamonds would make startling solitaire pendants or solitaire diamond ear-studs. Once again, we could always make these to order. Please be sure to allow us plenty of time, it is not quick or easy to find matching stones of the right quality and size. Because coloured diamonds, even enhanced ones, are far rarer than whitish ones, this job is even more difficult.
Fashion Leaders & Independent Spirits
Fancy coloured diamonds will only currently appeal to fashion leaders, and not to the sheeplike followers. They will also appeal to those who know their own minds and are capable of thinking for themselves. One day, maybe, coloured diamonds will become "fashionable", and then everybody and his dog will want one. By that time, we at Chard will have moved on as usual. When we say fashionable we really mean "as defined by the media", in other words hyped. It's your choice whether to be a slave or a free spirit.
Unmounted Brown Diamonds
We currently have the following unmounted brown diamonds available:-
|Weight||Shape||Description||Clarity||Available||Per Carat £||Price £||Price $|

Light Brown Diamonds
Diamonds which are only faintly brown are usually less expensive than colourless ones. Because light brown is hard to perceive, these are often sold as white. These are known in the diamond trade as Light Brown (LB) or Top Light Brown (TLB).
Judging from the number of enquiries we get for pink diamonds, some pop star must have recently been reported as having acquired a pink diamond. If you would like a natural fancy coloured pink diamond of, say, one carat, be prepared to pay about a million pounds for it! We have recently bought a small parcel of pink diamonds of between 0.16 and 0.29 carats, and are hoping to source more soon.
Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds
We recently sold the last of a small parcel of natural fancy coloured diamonds. Each was about half a carat, two out of the four sold to a retail jeweller, the other two we sold direct to their new owners. The last one was a striking orange colour.
