What is the difference between a Champagne Diamond and a Cognac Diamond?

Champagne and cognac diamonds, both belonging within the brown hues of fancy coloured diamonds.

Colour Range: Champagne diamonds tend to exhibit lighter hues, ranging from soft yellows to pale brown, often featuring delicate hints of pink or peach. These colours are reminiscent of the effervescent drink they are named after.

Cognac diamonds, in contrast, showcase deeper and more intense colours. Their palette ranges from rich brown to fiery oranges and reds, resembling the tones found in a fine glass of cognac or brandy.

Intensity and Rarity: Champagne diamonds, with their lighter shades, are more prevalent and come in a broader array of colours, making them relatively more affordable. Their understated elegance makes them versatile for various fine jewellery designs.

Cognac diamonds are prized for their rarity and bold, robust colours. Their deep and vivid hues result from specific geological conditions, rendering them a rare and precious choice in the world of coloured diamonds.

The 4 C’s of Brown Diamonds (often referred to as “champagne” or “cognac” diamonds)

Our reputation as Sydney’s premier jeweller is attributed to our expertise in evaluating the quality of fancy coloured diamonds. To ensure excellence, we adhere to the four essential criteria: cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight when assessing the quality of these exquisite gems.

Colour: The primary characteristic of a coloured diamond, the “C” in this context, is the colour itself. In brown diamonds, the specific shade and intensity of brown, often ranging from light to dark or deep hues, is evaluated.

Cut: The cut refers to the diamond’s proportions, facets, and overall craftsmanship. A well-cut brown diamond will exhibit maximum brilliance and sparkle.

Clarity: Clarity assesses the presence of internal or external flaws, called inclusions and blemishes, respectively. Clarity is essential in any diamond to ensure its overall quality.

Carat Weight: The carat weight measures the size of the diamond. Bigger brown diamonds typically have more intense colour, which can influence their value.
