Brown Diamond

What's your fancy?

Did you know that colored diamonds are called "fancy colored" in the jewelry industry? AGS Laboratories® just launched its new Colored Diamond Document, giving you peace of mind and more options when you are buying brown diamonds.

The AGS Laboratories Colored Diamond Document explains the color of diamonds in terminology meant for the jewelry buyer, not the gemologist. Take a look at the beauties featured below. These are not just brown diamonds. For example, the color of the diamond on the left is “Fancy deep brown with moderate green accents."
