What is a Cognac Diamond?

Heart of Gold with Congac Diamond Set

Cognac diamonds have a brownish body color and the word Cognac is a different way of describing brown diamonds. A Diamond can occur in nearly any color, though yellow and brown are by far the most common. The Cognac diamond is a member of the Carbon family and is the hardest substance known.

Colored diamonds contain certain "fingerprints" that cause the coloration. All diamonds are unique and have a different "DNA" from each other. The most common element, nitrogen, causes a slight to intense yellow coloring depending upon how much nitrogen is present.
