The most beautiful yellow coloured diamond necklaces

The most beautiful yellow coloured diamond necklaces

As the sun is shining and the sky is blue, we wish to share with you the most amazing coloured diamond necklaces that can be found in the world.

It is not necessarily a question of value in terms of money, but really just the beauty of the colour of the diamond. We have chosen three yellow diamonds that portray an incredible yellow hue that is as bright as the sun.

As you may already know, yellow diamonds are the second most common fancy coloured diamonds. The yellow is due to the presence of atoms of Nitrogen in the carbon structure of the diamond. These Nitrogen atoms need to be numerous and arranged in the structure in such a way that the blue light is absorbed, thereby producing a yellow colour.

Obviously the more intense and vivid the colour is, the most expensive the diamond is.


This incomparable diamond necklace features the world’s largest internally flawless diamond at 407 carats. This stunning yellow diamond was actually found by chance in the 1980s by a young girl in a discarded pile of rubble in Congo, Africa. It was set by Mouawad into an amazing necklace of rose gold that is set asymmetrically with 91 diamonds weighing over 200 carats. The whole design reminds you of the leaves of a vine.

The Isadora

The Isadora is a fabulous necklace that was actually specially designed for a movie by jeweller Harry Winston. It is a luminous yellow diamond that weighs 84 carats. The whole necklace was estimated at over 5million dollars, which is the most expensive piece of jewellery ever created for a movie.

The king of diamonds

The King of diamonds is actually one of the world’s largest Asscher-cut diamonds, weighing 77.12 carats. It was graded Fancy Vivid yellow and is now set on a string of white diamonds that complement the yellow stone perfectly. It was found by Lev Leviev in one of his own mines.


These three diamond necklaces are really breathtaking, the stones are unique in beauty and they have been set by talented craftsmen in elegant designs that really enhance and complement each one of these yellow diamonds.

BAUNAT has an elegant collection of diamond necklaces that range from the simple solitaire to more elaborate designs that have been created by talented local designers and craftsmen.
