One of the latest jewellery trends in Hollywood is celebrities choosing pink diamonds for their engagement rings. Even more recently the emergence of lab-grown pink diamonds that have opened up a new world for jewellery lovers.
Pink Diamonds are admired for their exquisite beauty and unique colour, but just how rare are they? It is believed that the number of quality pink diamonds can be held in the palm of your hand. Their extreme rarity and alluring beauty make them one of the most desirable and sought after gemstones in the world.
The formation of all diamonds is something that happens over millions of years, however, it still remains unclear what it is exactly that gives pink diamonds their unique hue. While most coloured diamonds owe their colour to impurities such as nitrogen, the colour in pink diamonds remains shrouded in mystery. It is thought that the immense pressure of the earth’s crust moves the diamond closer to the surface. This changes the internal structure of the crystal grain, causing the stone to absorb light and product it’s unique pink colouring.
In 2002 Pink Diamonds were propelled into the world when Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez with a 6.1 carat Pink Diamond and have since continued to increase in popularity. Despite the high demand for pink diamonds their supply remains quite low and so their cost is exorbitant. The allure of pink diamonds has always been clear but their rarity has resulted in consumers choosing to utilise these stones as investment pieces. Pink diamonds exude femininity and romance, which is why people choose to express their love with such a unique stone. It is predicted that by the end of 2020 the Argyle mines of Australia will close, ceasing the world’s main supply of pink diamonds. But don’t panic! This is not bad news for those of you looking to possess your very own, as their value is expected to greatly increase as a result.
Lab-Grown Pink Diamonds
It can take millions of years for a natural pink diamond to form in the earth. Thanks to the advances of technology there is an alternative to mined pink diamonds. So how are lab grown pink diamonds actually made? Pink diamonds can now be created in a controlled lab environment using either a process called “High Pressure, High Temperature” (HPHT) or “Chemical Vapour Deposit” (CVD). This essentially replicates the earth’s natural process. This process allows the pink diamonds to be created at a much faster rate, which not only minimises their carbon footprint but offers you a guaranteed conflict-free diamond. Lab-grown pink diamonds are also identical to their mined counterparts, with the same chemical, optical and physical properties.
Lab-grown pink diamonds have opened up a new world for jewellery lovers. These exquisitely alluring and rare stones that were once reserved for the likes of celebrities can now belong to you. Pink lab-grown diamonds not only possess equal beauty, clarity and colour but offer even bigger savings. Pink lab-grown diamonds cost up to 90% less than mined diamonds, so at the faction of the cost, you could be one of those lucky enough to add one to your collection.
