pink-diamondThe price of fancy blue and pink diamonds increased partially in the second quarter, offset by a drop in commercial fancy yellow prices.

According to the Fancy Color Research Foundation (FCRF), fancy-colour diamond prices edged up in the period between April and June 2016, following a relatively soft first quarter.

The data collected showed:

“Unsurprisingly, fancy intense and fancy vivid colour diamonds of all colours enjoy robust demand in the market, driven mainly by supply scarcity that is not likely to change in the foreseeable future,” said FCRF advisory board chair Eden Rachminov.

“The situation is different with commercial fancy yellow goods, which is being adversely affected by sluggish U.S. demand.”Â
