"Fancy colored" diamonds are extremely rare stones. Approximately one out of every 10,000 naturally produced diamonds are considered "fancy colored." The term "fancy" was coined by the Gemological Institute of America to distinguish between natural-color polished diamonds which display color and white diamonds. Fancy colored diamonds increase in value the more saturated they are with color. Whereas white diamonds are graded using D-Z scale, fancy colored diamonds are graded based on the degree to which the diamonds are saturated with color. In the 1970s, the GIA developed a grading scale for fancy color diamonds. Fancy color diamonds are not referred to by letters but by the degree of saturation present in the stone. The color saturation is graded as follows: faint, very light, light, fancy light, fancy, fancy dark, fancy intense, fancy deep or fancy vivid. Fancy color diamonds come in a wide array of colors, including yellow diamonds, pink diamonds, orange diamonds, blue diamonds, pink diamonds, red diamonds, black diamonds, and purple diamonds, among others.
