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. 

Pink diamonds are 100% natural when the rough stone is found, there is a pinkish hue to the colour of the stone. Depending on the intensity of the colour and the cut of the stone, the outcome of the stone is usually breathtaking. Polished Diamonds have a great supply from Rio Tinto for all requests – enquire with us and we can help find the perfect diamond for you – . Read on for further helpful information:

The majority of pink diamonds come from the Australian Argyle diamond mine which produces more than 90 per cent of the world’s natural diamonds. While we do know how coloured 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 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 diamond rough mined every year so a very limited supply.  The Argyle mine is expected to close in 2021 so there will be no more pink diamonds and the price will, therefore, increase significantly.  Contact us today and allow us to help you with pink diamond information and buying.
