Pink diamonds are one of the world’s best kept jewelry secrets. Pink Argyle diamonds are so rare that most people go their whole lifetimes without having the pleasure of seeing one!
Pink diamonds are found in Western Australia; the most Northern part is where the Argyle Diamond mine is located and this is the only place in the entire world where natural, intense pink diamonds have ever been found.
Pink diamonds vary in color intensity from pale pink champagne diamonds to deep purplish pink. Naturally, the ones of brightest intensity are the most sought after by a range of investors, jewelers and those looking for an exquisite, rare and beautiful gift for a loved one.
There are a select few retailers that offer pink diamonds. Some offer completely natural diamonds, some also offer enhanced pink diamonds that have been worked on to appear more vibrant. Those who sell pink diamonds will usually inform you of the quality of diamond they’re offering and whether they’re natural or enhanced. If you cannot discern this information immediately, it’s worth asking the jewelry supplier about their stock.
Pink Argyle diamonds are truly rare items. To put their rarity into perspective, only 1 diamond carat per million tonnes of diamonds discovered is suitable enough to be declared as an Argyle pink diamond. Diamonds mined at the Argyle Diamond Mine are some of the most precious gems in existence, especially because it has been made known that there’s only an estimated 10 years of pink diamond supply remaining!
Why pink diamonds are in existence is something that still remains a mystery. It has been speculated that their color is obtained because a vast amount of pressure alters the gem’s structure beneath the Earth’s surface, allowing it to retain light and produce the highly sought-after pink color.
Nothing compares to the brilliance of a pink diamond and they’re considerably more valuable than their colorless/near-colorless diamond counterparts. As a result, pink diamonds are some of the most expensive diamonds available to buy.
The fact remains though, that they’re truly exquisite gems and worth every penny if you want to really show somebody how special they are!
