Does your gal like pink? Does she like diamonds? Up until just recently, pink diamonds were so rare and ultra expensive that they were out of the question for most of us. A lady could only dream of wearing a real pink diamond on her wedding finger. However, that has changed. I have some very exciting news for you.
Pink Diamonds Are Rare
Diamonds are found in a variety of colors and hues. Most ladies wear a “colorless” or “near colorless” diamond. Brown and gray diamonds are very common colors are relatively inexpensive, and not highly sought after. However, fancy colored diamonds such as orange, blue, purple, red, green and pink are very rare - and expensive!
Typically, naturally colored pink diamonds have a faint or light pink hue. Nature doesn’t often create a vivid or intense pink diamond, that’s why the vivid pinks will command huge premiums. If you are shopping for a natural mined pink diamond here what one will cost you:
- 1.00ct, Fancy Pink, VS2 clarity, Round - $230,100
- .54ct, Fancy Vivid Pink, I1 clarity, Radiant Shape - $81,100
The most expensive pink diamond sold for $36.1 Million at Sotheby’s Geneva jewelry auction in May 2016. Yes, $36 MILLION! The fancy vivid pink pear shaped pink diamond weighed in at a massive 15.38 carats. The winning bidder was a private Asian buyer who bid over the telephone.

A New Affordable Choice
Using highly advanced (and super expensive) technology that is just now recently available diamonds can now be commercially engineered and grown. These lab grown diamonds are created using breakthrough technological processes that replicate the conditions in which diamonds are naturally produced in the Earth taking eons of time. This process is obviously sped up so it takes several weeks to make a diamond.
These lab grown diamonds are identical to mined diamonds chemically, physically and optically. Take one into a jeweler and ask them to test it on an electronic diamond tester - it is a diamond. But instead of removing tons of earth and scarring the landscape, and possibly the environment, they come out of a high tech laboratory.
Even in the lab grown sector, pink diamonds are much more rare than the “colorless” diamonds. But they are attainable for our customers. Remember, that 1ct mentioned earlier for $230,100? Crazy money. Well, you can own a 1.71ct Princess Cut, VS1 clarity, Fancy Pink diamond for $12,500. A huge difference! Or choose a .50ct Fancy Pink for around $1,900. Well within your budget.
Pink diamonds look fabulous when paired with rose gold. And when you set bright white diamonds around the pink in a halo design, and use rose gold for the metal, you have a drop dead gorgeous piece.

Oh, another thing. Each of the lab grown pink diamonds comes with it’s own I.G.I. (International Gemological Institute) Diamond Report, commonly called a “certificate”. Also, the diamond is laser inscribed on the girdle with the IGI report number for your protection.
