Yellow diamonds are a unique and eye-catching variety of diamond used for a variety of stunning jewellery pieces.
Their soft and alluring sun-like tones mean they’re often synonymous with happiness, joy, creativity and optimism. They can come in varying shades of clarity and intensity, and are often seen with orange, brown or green tints.
If you’re lucky enough to be in possession of a necklace with a yellow diamond as its main gem, you might be wondering how best to wear it, and what to wear it with.
In this article, we’ll give you a brief rundown of what to wear with your yellow diamond necklace and how to get the best out of it.

Yellow Diamond Necklace Colour Pairings
Yellow diamonds can sometimes be a challenge to pair with other colours, but they’re actually more versatile than you think.
Consider complementary colours; leafy green and calm blue clothes generally match well with yellow diamonds, as do rich purple tones, if you’re feeling bold.
Yellow also naturally pairs well with orange and red, which can accentuate the sun-like hues of the gem’s colour palette.
Black, of course, is also a classic pairing that brings out the best in any colour – and yellow is no exception. Black can be a very effective complement to bright yellow jewellery, and an easy way to bring out the brightest and most vivid tones in your diamond.
Pairing With Different Intensities
You may also want to think about the intensity of the yellow diamond itself and the role this plays in pairing with clothes and jewellery.
For example, if you have a light or pale coloured yellow diamond, wearing lots of light or neutral coloured clothes might risk washing out the delicate yellow tones of your gemstone.
On the other hand, pairing the necklace with other vivid-coloured jewellery such as sapphires, emeralds or topazes might also overpower the colour of the diamond.
The best way to go in this instance may be to opt for simple, dark-coloured clothes such as black or grey. This will help to draw the eye’s attention to your diamond and intensify the yellow colouration of the gemstone.
Similarly, try to avoid wearing a lot of dazzling, eye-catching gemstones that might draw attention away from the diamond if you want it to remain the focal point of your outfit.
Accessorising with lighter-coloured jewellery such as opals or white diamonds can also be an effective way to add sparkle to your look without overpowering your diamond necklace.
If you happen to have a very vivid yellow diamond necklace, however, you might get away with pairing it with bolder clothing options and colourful jewellery. The best thing would be to mix and match several tones and make a judgement based on how much you’d want your yellow diamond necklace to stand out when wearing it.
When worn well, yellow diamond necklaces can be a timeless and classic way to bring elegance to any look.
