Loose Brown Diamonds


When we think of diamonds we think of the clear crystal type of diamonds that are found in every jewelry store worldwide. We think of the big caret diamond on the engagement ring. We might even remember that there is a beautiful diamond which lies in the Smithsonian museum. If we remember correctly we’ll remember that the hope diamond is blue in color. There are other colors of diamonds available, and one of those colors is brown. Yes, brown, and the color brown is not the color of diamonds you may remember. Brown diamonds exist and they could possibly be the most special diamond around.

Loose brown diamonds can be made into any type of jewelry setting. The loose brown diamonds are not as rare as the pink and green diamonds but they have a subtle gentle tone or hue. The brown diamonds have become a new classic. The color of the brown diamonds emits their own personality and each stone has a unique quality. The color of these stones can be considered “chocolate”, “champagne”, and “cognac”. The largest place to find these loose brown diamonds is in Argyle Mines in Australia.

These fancy colored diamonds are natural, and sometimes referred to as natural fancy brown diamonds. The color is formed by the absorption of light by structural defects in the diamond lattice. The diamond lattice is formed by the carbon atoms in a diamond crystal. The lattice consists of two interpenetrating face centered cubic lattices, displaced along the body diagonal of the cubic cell by one quarter the length of the diagonal.

The loose brown diamonds of pure colors without a secondary color modifier are sold at public auctions. When purchasing a loose brown diamond make certain that you find a certified loose brown diamond. The diamond certification is also known as a diamond grading report and is an easily understood document prepared by an expert gemologist that describes the key characteristics of a diamond. This grading verifies the quality of a loose diamond and allows us, non-experts to make a very good decision in the buying of loose diamonds. Every loose diamond needs to be certified by gemological laboratories such as GIA, AGS, or EGL.
