by Xclusive Diamonds 11 Jun 2023 0 Comments

Diamonds are a timeless classic, but colored diamonds are a fascinating addition to the world of diamond jewelry. From pink to blue, yellow, and more, colored diamonds have captured the hearts of diamond lovers worldwide. Let's dive into the fascinating world of colored diamonds and learn about their history, rarity, and the variety of colors they come in.

First, let's talk about the history of colored diamonds. The first recorded colored diamond was discovered in India in the early 1600s. It was a yellow diamond and was presented to King James I of England. Since then, colored diamonds have been found in various parts of the world, including South Africa, Brazil, and Australia. However, colored diamonds are still extremely rare and account for less than 0.1% of all diamonds mined.

One of the most popular colored diamonds is the pink diamond. Pink diamonds are found in the Argyle mine in Western Australia and are the most expensive type of colored diamond. The intense pink color is due to the presence of a rare atomic structure. They are graded on a scale from faint to fancy vivid, with fancy vivid being the most intense and valuable. Pink diamonds are often used in engagement rings, earrings, and other diamond jewelry pieces.

Another popular colored diamond is the blue diamond. Blue diamonds are found in South Africa and are also extremely rare. The blue color comes from the presence of boron in the diamond's atomic structure. They are graded on a scale from faint to fancy deep, with fancy deep being the most valuable. Blue diamonds are often used in statement necklaces, rings, and earrings.

Yellow diamonds are also a popular choice for diamond jewelry. Yellow diamonds are found in various parts of the world, including South Africa and Australia. The yellow color is due to the presence of nitrogen in the diamond's atomic structure. They are graded on a scale from faint to fancy vivid, with fancy vivid being the most valuable. Yellow diamonds are often used in engagement rings, necklaces, and bracelets.

Colored diamonds also come in a range of other colors, including green, orange, and red. Green diamonds are the rarest of all colored diamonds and are often used in unique diamond jewelry pieces. Orange diamonds are also rare and have a beautiful, fiery hue. Red diamonds are the rarest of all colored diamonds and are often sold at auction for millions of dollars.

In conclusion, colored diamonds are a fascinating addition to the world of diamond jewelry. Their rarity and beautiful hues make them highly sought after by diamond lovers worldwide. Pink, blue, yellow, and more, each colored diamond has its unique history and charm. If you are looking to add a unique and colorful touch to your diamond jewelry collection, a colored diamond might just be the perfect choice.
