Information About Pink Diamonds
Natural pink diamonds aren’t very common they only account for about 1% of the total production of diamonds in the world.
The majority of pink diamonds come from the Australian Argyle diamond mine which produces more than 90 percent of the world’s natural pink diamonds. While we do know how colored diamonds get their colour - blue diamonds get their colour from traces of the boron, the displacement of carbon atoms creates green diamonds but to this day it is unclear how pink diamonds get their unique colour. The theory is that while the diamond is forced to the Earth's surface, the structure of the diamond somehow becomes altered, causing a deformation. This flaw forces the stone to absorb light differently and emit the pink hue.
The lighter the pink tone, the less rare is the diamond. Heavily saturated pure pinks and purplish pinks are sort after by collectors, with prices reflecting their rarity and desirability. There are approximately 80 carats of high quality pink diamond rough mined every year so a very limited supply. The Argyle mine is expectd to close in 2021 so there will be no more pink diamonds and the price will therefore increase significantly.
