Selecting the Perfect Pink Coloured Diamond
The Pink Diamond is the most precious of all fancy coloured diamonds. With a diminishing world supply of natural pink diamonds, they are becoming more precious still. The rarity of this colour of diamond makes it one of the most expensive colours types of diamond available.
When purchasing a pink diamond it is very important to choose a stone that is certified as a natural pink diamond. White or off-colour diamonds can be treated using various processes to create diamonds with a variety of colours, including pink. Jewellers are ethically bound to disclose these processes, including irradiation and High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) treatment, to customers, however, some do not. Pink diamonds, despite the intensity of colour, typically cost up to twenty times the cost of white diamonds of a similar size. The larger the diamond, the rarer it is, and the more expensive it is. So, if you think that the price on a “natural” pink diamond is “too good to be true,” it probably is.
