Because one never tires of yellow diamonds
Remember when it seemed like every celebrity was announcing her engagement with a big yellow diamond? The events obviously sparked a lot of demand for fancy yellow engagement rings, and I think consumers in general started becoming more familiar with them. We’ve since moved on to rose gold accents and alternative styles—the rise of the yellow will come back, it always does—but fancy yellows continue to amaze whether or not you’re talking bridal. These are the pieces that command attention—somehow, they have the power to stop you in your tracks. I say that from experience: Every year at JCK Las Vegas, there is a yellow diamond ring (if not rings) that calls to me. And I find it, try it on, covet it, cry a little about how I’ll never own it, yada yada—but the important thing is that it deserves to be admired. And for your customers who have the purchasing power to get their hands (or ears) on one of these, I have just a few in mind for you to tempt them with.
