The two diamonds are in one of the most sought after color grades, Fancy Vivid Yellow. Rare in nature, only one in every 10,000 diamonds are classified as fancy and of those designated Fancy Yellow, only 6% are given the highly praised accolade of vivid. They are among the most sought after diamonds in the world and these two on the secret watch are enhanced by the radiant cut chosen so their facets reflect light like rays of the sun.
