Add A Sparkle To With The Mesmerizing Pink Diamond November 6, 2020 – Posted in: Blog

Pink diamonds are so captivating that it has to be some trick of magic that stones like these can exist out in nature.  With their striking colour, pink diamonds are a symbol of luxury, romance, and elegance.  As a piece in a diamond collection, these loose diamonds garner such a high value that they have the potential to overshadow any other diamonds a collector may own.

Pink diamonds may go for 20 times more than their white diamond counterparts.  Clearly, for good reason, celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham, and Queen Elizabeth II have been spotted clad in pink diamond accessories.


When it comes to the formation of a natural fancy colour diamond the stone is created in the same way as a colourless diamond.  However, there is one unique difference; during the crystallization process, foreign particles such as radiation and gas molecules get trapped in the stone. 

This, in turn, influences the colour of the diamond in a very unique way. Each colour depends on the different types of minerals and molecules that were present when the diamond was formed. 


Pink diamonds range from very light pink to a deep, rich Pink Panther-esque pink.  Just like other coloured diamonds, the more intense the colour, the higher the value.  Along with the gorgeous pink colour, many pink diamonds have additional colour components that make each diamond unique.  Orange, brown, and purple are very common colour modifiers found in natural pink diamonds.



  • More than 90 per cent of the world’s supply of natural pink diamonds are produced in a worldwide-known diamond mine called the Argyle Mine in Western Australia. 
  •  Historically they have also been found in India, South Africa, Canada, Russia and Brazil. The Argyle mine is expected to remain open until 2020.
  • Amazingly, less than 1% of the Argyle mine’s output is pink diamonds, making these diamonds the rarest of the rare. This means that for every one million carats of rough diamonds mined at Argyle, only one carat of pink diamonds is suitable for selling. 
  • Tendered pink diamonds are an average of 1 carat, and a total of about 40 to 50 carats are sold at auction annually.
  • 80 percent of the diamonds mined at Argyle are beautiful brown diamonds.
  • Pink diamonds can be found in a few different places across the globe: Brazil, Russia, Siberia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Canada.

Before selling, the workers polish and cut the diamonds at the mine but these diamonds are so rare to find in good quality that for every one million carats of rough diamonds produced, only one carat is sellable.  Because of this extremely high rarity level, pink diamonds can earn up to one thousand to one million dollars per carat.  This price range varies based on colour, intensity, and cut similar to the price variations of other coloured diamonds. 


Other coloured diamonds get their colour from certain elements that are present during the formation process, but as far as pink diamonds go, it remains unclear about where they get their pink colour.


Some myths surrounding the pink diamond state that the structure of the diamond becomes deformed when it is forced to the Earth’s surface.  The deformation reflects light in such a way that it appears pink, but there has yet to be any evidence supporting this idea.

Pink diamonds come in all different shades, and just like other coloured diamonds, they can be graded faint, very light, light, fancy light, fancy intense, fancy deep and fancy vivid.  The more intense the colour of the diamond, the higher the price of the diamond.  Therefore, a natural pink diamond that is a rich and pure pink colour, thus graded Fancy Vivid Pink, is exponentially more expensive than a Fancy Light Pink or Fancy Pink diamond.

Argyle pink diamonds have a more complicated structure than white diamonds and can take three to four times as long to polish.

Due to their unique origin, the diamonds mined by the Argyle Mine famously offer an intensity of colour that is unmatched by other pink diamonds.  These diamonds have made a journey of more than a billion years to become a part of exquisite, once-in-a-lifetime jewellery pieces.

In fact, adding to their rarity, an Argyle pink diamond is incredibly difficult to polish requiring highly skilled, master cutters who specialise only in Argyle pinks.


Gemstones have been woven in with royal history throughout the world for centuries.  Pink diamonds have shined throughout time, even gracing the Iranian crown jewels.  The “Sea of Light Diamond” or Darya-e-Noor is a 186-carat pale pink rectangular diamond, and also notably the largest cut pink diamond in the world.

Queen Elizabeth II was gifted an amazing pink diamond on her wedding day in 1947 by a Canadian geologist John Williamson, who discovered it in Africa.  She then had the stone cut and put into a broach, surrounded by hundreds of white diamonds.


An upcoming jewellery auction at Bonhams London will see a variety of pieces go under the hammer, not least a pink diamond ring by Meister.

The ring, created in circa 1968, is estimated to sell for between £550,000-750,000.

It is a step-cut diamond, graded as VS1 clarity, potentially flawless, weighing 3.62 carats and nestled between tapered baguette-cut diamond shoulders.

The auction will take place 12 November at Bonhams’ New Bond Street premises.

The beauty of the diamond’s colour and its high clarity grade is further offset by its elegant cut, with a minimum of facets.

A pink diamond engagement couple ring would be perfect for the couple looking for a one-of-a-kind ring experience. Pink diamond rings are so incredibly rare that couples would be highly unlikely to come across any other ring that is in the exact cut and style as theirs. That being said, however, finding a pink diamond ring for sale is incredibly rare, and therefore, couples must be willing to spend a substantial amount to secure the ring for themselves.  Less popular are pink diamond wedding couple rings and pink diamond promise rings, but they remain options for those looking for a pop of colour.

Because of the stone’s rarity, a woman would especially love to be seen wearing it if she intends to make a statement ring with her engagement ring.  Having a pink diamond instantly makes her diamond that much more noticeable. A pink diamond wedding engagement ring makes an unforgettable statement in any social setting.
