A Brief History of Diamonds

Tips on Buying Pink Diamonds

The truth is that buying any diamond is a complicated process due to the high amount of money involved and this money amounts increase when buying pink diamonds which are just microscopically different from the other diamonds. Due to the fact that most diamonds are bought for use in engagement rings which is a special event then the task can be arduous. The good news is that with the help of some pointers discussed below this process can be made simpler.

An important fact to note is that pink diamonds are in the category of colored diamonds which is a category that encompasses diamonds that come in various colours or hues unlike the regular diamonds that are colorless. These colours include the variety of diamonds called yellow diamonds and brown diamonds and even rare colours like orange, purple, blue, green, red and even pink. A known fact is that pink diamonds are very rare and are among the rarest diamonds in that niche and this could be attributed to the fact that there is no clear explanation for the pink coloration in the diamonds.

It is worth mentioning that colored diamonds can be graded for color and the color description is often a composition of two or even three colours. An amazing fact to highlight is that pure pink diamonds are very rare and the most common kinds of pink diamonds are those that have secondary colours which includes pink diamonds with various color combinations like brown pink, purple pink and orange pink. A simple way to gauge the amount of color in the diamond is based on how it is described in the certificate such as if the diamond is pink but with a hint of brown then it is described as brownish pink but if on the other hand it is has a stronger shade of brown (but is majorly pink) then it is described as a brown pink diamond. This same concept works for the other colours too such as purple pink, purplish pink, orange pink versus orangy pink. It is fairly common for diamonds to have three color combinations such as brownish purplish pink or brownish orangy pink.

It would be unwise not to mention that there is another classification of colours because apart from being graded for color colored diamonds (such as pink diamonds) are also graded for intensity which is indicated as a prefix in the color description on the GIA certificate. It is worth highlighting that the color intensities of diamonds vary from faint, light to fancy. Faint has no other description whereas light can vary from very light and just plain light. An irrefutable fact worth bringing to light is that fancy on the other hand encompasses various categories ranging from fancy light; plain fancy, fancy intense; fancy deep and lastly fancy vivid. The main thing to check for before buying any diamond is a GIA certified diamond because a GIA certificate enables the buyer to know the history of the diamond and without the certificate everything else is irrelevant.
