Today I’m here to discuss one of my favorite looks for Valentine’s Day – Colored stones! To be specific – Yellow diamonds.
What I love about these rings is how versatile they are. The beauty of a perfect gemstone like these is that you can style them in an endless number of ways – Stack these beauties for a great modern look or single out your favorite for a more classic, or even a retro feel.
Tiffany & Co. has an exclusive contract with an Australian mine and that’s where all of their flawless yellow diamonds come from these days. Not only does this mean that they get to pick and choose the perfect stones for you, it also gives them a unique ability to adhere to their pledge of corporate responsibility.
The King of Diamonds, Mr. Tiffany himself, was named such in 1878 after acquiring a mammoth 287 carat stone that was eventually cut down to 128 carats.
Not only is this stone still refered to as The Tiffany Diamond, it’s also one of the largest yellow diamonds ever discovered!
