Alan Bronstein and Stephen C. Hofer have devoted considerable time to compiling a complete catalogue of known coloured diamond names…..these appear in the delightfully named Forever Brilliant.
The authors assign a “Common Name” to each stone. For example a stone that is classified by Hue as Grey – Blue is given the common name of “Sky”. An Orangish-brownish-Yellow has the common name of “Honey”.
The Aurora Collection book exists also in a more elaborate version .
Clearly naming colours is important…..but even more important is to choose a coloured diamond that speaks to YOU!
