Where To Buy The Best Pink Diamonds
Pink diamonds are some of the most attractive color diamonds on the market. They are the most valuable stones you can buy. This is so because they are extremely rare. Unlike other color diamonds, it is a mystery to what causes the pink hues.
Scientists theorize that it is because of an atomic-level lattice effect that alters light refraction. As a result, they selectively absorb light and produces a pink hue.
Pink Diamond Grading
The price range for pink diamonds vary. This is so because there are many different hues that pink diamonds exhibit. They are: very light pink, light pink, fancy light pink, fancy pink, fancy intense pink, fancy vivid pink, fancy deep pink.
Extremely saturated pink diamonds are incredibly rare and become collector’s items. When a rare vivid pink diamond becomes available to the market for purchase, it can easily reach millions of dollars per carat.

These are a great option and appear especially striking when set in a platinum or white gold setting.When choosing a pink diamond there are 3 other factors that influence the price of a diamond as well. These influences are 3 of 4 C’s: Cut, Carat, and Clarity.
- Cut is very influential on price because it directly influences a diamond’s sparkle.
- Carat refers to the diamond’s total weight, not size. Two diamonds of equal carat weight differ in price because of the three other C’s. A 1 carat diamond is equal to 0.2 grams. A 5 carat diamond is equal to 1.0 grams.
