Ada offers lab grown diamonds in a rainbow of fancy colors including yellows, blues, pinks, reds, grays, and black. Fancy colored diamonds are grown by adding trace elements to the growth cell during the growth process to create gorgeous shades of stunning color. For example, adding nitrogen creates yellow diamonds; adding boron creates blue.

Unlike mined colored diamonds, which are prohibitively expensive for all but the wealthiest of the diamond collectors, lab grown fancy colored diamonds can be commissioned to meet client demand. Thus, Ada's fancy colored diamonds are only priced slightly higher than our white diamonds, opening a whole new canvas of colorful brilliance for both bridal and fashion jewelry.

Purchase Custom Jewelry or Loose Diamonds

Ada Diamonds offers fancy colored diamonds set in both fashion jewelry and bridal jewelry. We also sell loose fancy colored diamonds for clients that collect diamonds or want the diamonds to be set by their trusted family jeweler. As part of the purchase process we will supply your jeweler with all the information required to set the diamonds to be enjoyed for decades.

How Fancy Colored Diamonds are Graded

Lab grown fancy colored diamonds are graded in three dimensions: Hue, Saturation, & Tone. These criteria are exactly the same for both mined and cultured diamonds. Learn more from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA)


Hue is color by common name such as yellow, blue, pink. Regularly, grading organizations will give two hues to the diamond. The last hue is the dominant hue of the diamond. For example, reddish orange is an orange diamond with a red undertone, whereas an orangish red diamond is a red diamond with an slight orange tint. Occasionally, a diamond can have three hues, such as a brownish orangy yellow.

Saturation is the weakness to strength of the color. The three highest saturations are fancy, fancy intense, and fancy vivid. Mined diamonds rarely contain enough atoms of non-carbon material to receive intense or vivid grading; however, laboratories can control the ratio of elements in the diamonds to produce beautiful intense and vivid colors.

Tone is lightness to darkness of a color. The ratio of the trace elements to the carbon in the diamond determine the saturation and tone of the fancy color. The diamonds in the video below are light blue, fancy intense blue, fancy vivid blue, and fancy deep blue.
