Diamonds, indeed, are a girl’s best friend, and those with discerning tastes want more than just the traditional white diamond. Without a doubt, pink diamonds are a great way to make a statement and express your unmatched love for your partner.
Pink is the ultimate feminine color and suits almost anyone. So you can’t go wrong with a pink diamond if you’re buying an engagement ring or other jewelry, such as earrings or a necklace for your partner. Women love to wear trend-setting and show-stopping colored stones such as pink diamonds.
Over the last decade, colored diamonds, mainly pink diamond, has continued to gain popularity. One reason for this is the popular celebrity culture which has shown well-known personalities like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez sporting this beauty in public.
About 80 to 90% of the world’s pink diamonds are produced in Western Australia in the Argyle Diamond mine, owned by Rio Tinto mining company. The first pink diamond was found in Australia 40 years ago, and it took the company ten years to start a mining operation and unveil the beautiful stones from the earth’s center. But the pink diamonds from Argyle are so rare that only a few are produced in a year that you can hold an entire year’s produce in just one hand.
Unfortunately, this renowned mine was forced to close in 2020 because it could no longer find enough diamonds to make a profit. Thus, the world’s primary source of pink diamonds is lost, making pink diamonds even rarer and more expensive.
Pink diamonds range in color from light, pale pink to dark, intense pink. The price of a pink diamond depends on the intensity of the pink hue and its overall quality, which is determined by its cut, clarity, color, and carat weight. Since color is one factor that often determines brilliance and luster, a colorless diamond will typically obtain the highest grade. However, the intensity of the color, rather than its absence, is prized more highly in fancy-color diamonds.
The pink color is produced within the diamond at the point of formation. Pink diamonds are subjected to higher, more extreme pressure than colorless diamonds, which gives them their distinctive pink color. This coloring process differs from how yellow or blue diamonds acquire their color. Yellow and blue diamonds acquire their color from chemical impurities such as nitrogen or boron, which are present during the formation process. Diamonds with exotic colors are much rarer than colorless diamonds.
Women of all ages adore pink diamonds. Pink is the quintessential feminine color and looks good on practically almost everyone. Pink diamond engagement ring can be an excellent way to offer a purely feminine touch and a sense of exoticism and elegance.
Although white diamonds are also popular, pink-colored diamonds are scarce and so very valuable. Pink also enhances the beauty of any skin tone. Pink diamonds go well with many different ring designs, including solitaire rings, halo rings, three-stone rings, cluster rings, and band rings. Even better, if you want, you can combine pink and white diamonds to create something spectacular.
