About the Fancy Color Diamond Index
The Index is a first-of-its-kind tracker of changes in the market prices of yellow, pink and blue fancy color diamonds, the three most commonly traded fancy color diamond categories (a market price is a wholesale transaction taking place in one or more of the global diamond trading centers).

The Index is a composite representation of changes in price points gathered since 2005, based on a statistically significant sample size. It offers insight into variations in the appreciation of diamonds of different colors and sizes.

The Fancy Color Research Foundation oversees proprietary prevalence and pricing data aggregation and production of the index. A third-party New York-based audit firm reviews the development of The Index from the various data points gathered.
