Fancy Pink Diamonds |Fancy Color Diamond Education

Pink diamonds are some of the most alluring fancy diamonds on the market. Due to their extreme rarity, pink diamonds are some of the most valuable stones that you can buy. Pink diamonds can contain any of the following hues: very light pink, light pink, fancy light pink, fancy pink, fancy intense pink, fancy vivid pink, fancy deep pink.

Unlike other fancy color diamonds, it is unclear what exactly causes pink diamonds to exhibit pink hues. Though the exact cause is still a mystery, some scientists theorize that it is due to an atomic-level lattice defect, which selectively absorbs light and produces a pink hue.

Very saturated pinks and purplish pinks are incredibly rare and often used as collectors’ items. When a rare vivid pink or purplish pink is released to the market for purchase, it can easily reach millions of dollars per carat.

James Allen offers a wide selection of fancy pink diamonds, in a variety of shapes and carat sizes. Pink diamonds are a great option when looking to add to your diamond selection and appear especially striking when set in a platinum or white gold setting.
