Fancy-colored diamonds have almost no black & white answers (pun intended).

Deep yellow diamonds aren’t “shunned” but we rarely see them. If you’re looking for similar tone you might consider very slightly greenish yellow or very slightly orangy yellow (the last color in the description is always the main one). Colors with the most saturation will be fancy intense and fancy vivid.

From an appeal standpoint, vivids are absolute barn-burners but they carry a notable premium.Fancy intense is stunning at a lower price, but you may be after something different.For hues other than yellow GIA grades saturation as ‘faint,’ ‘very light’ and ‘light’ prior to fancy light. For yellow/brown these diamonds fall into the K-Z color range (just beyond Z they become fancy light).

As for shape, the cut cornered radiant is generally considered the best for holding color in your size range. This is a situation where you want to work with someone who is seeing the diamonds considered; even better if you can see them yourself.

Anyone who tells you that Fancy Deep yellows are "shunned" is blowing smoke up your tailpipe. They are not as highly prized as Fancy Vivids, but they can be both very attractive and very expensive. The difference is largely one of tone: a Fancy Deep can be almost as saturated as a Fancy Vivid (and more than a Fancy Intense) but will be somewhat darker.

A fancy color diamond has to be judged on its own merits.

If you read Captain Aubrey above it applies directly to your question. One fancey deep yellow may be worth considerably more than another and each will need to be judged on its own merits, depending on the quality of cut clarity and in this case, the color will be the most demanding of the 4 c''s. There is an infinite range of colors and fairly major and minor variations that have tremendous impact on the pricing may occur within each of the GIA color descriptive grades.

Each stone will be judged, and priced, on its own merits, there is no Rap sheet with any validity for color.
