You rarely saw green diamonds in stores or even valued in the industry up until the engagement of Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez. When she put a huge demand on the industry by her ring being a 8+ Carat Fancy Intense Yellowish Green Cushion Cut. Green Diamonds have taken the jewelry industry by a storm, here at Rare Colors we have nearly sold more green diamonds than pink diamonds this year. Which is a crazy statement to show how powerful the JLO effect is. Take a look at all are Amazing Green Diamond Rings and see what shade of green takes your breath away!

Besides the standard green diamonds there is a separate family of chameleon diamonds which I believe is an even bigger wonder of the world, since they change color! Personally, my favorite chameleons are the ones that change to a neon orange color when heat is present! Dive deeper into Chameleon Diamonds by reading the article here!
