C. Celebrities With Yellow Diamonds
Yellow diamond celebrities have proven that yellow or Canarian diamonds are in fashion over the years. Lovely yellow diamonds (especially natural, intense colors) are undoubtedly one of the most popular and valuable diamonds in extravagant colors alongside blue and pink and have long been used by Hollywood stars.
Although the yellow color is due to the presence of impurities in the colorless diamond (the presence of nitrogen), it is the rarity and beauty of this “unclean” gem that makes it so valuable and creates a sense of rich elegance. Note, however, that when I say rare and valuable, it is the intensely yellow diamonds that occur naturally. This is because there is no shortage of widely available and affordable pale yellow diamonds. OK, let’s go to the list of some of the famous Hollywood stars who have been associated with mesmerizing yellow ornaments.
1. Kelly Clarkson
