Enchanting Fancy pink diamonds

Australia’s largest, natural pink diamond, The Argyle Pink Jubilee, was discovered recently, at Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine in Western Australia, where it is said that 90% of the world’s natural pink diamonds are found. But it was not just this diamond’s gorgeous pale pink colour and exceptional size that caught my eye – the extremely rare 12.76 carat stone is estimated to be worth at least £7 million!

Though natural fancy diamonds are exceptionally rare, they can be establish in almost every colour; ranging from vivid blues and greens, to bright yellows and pinks, they have even been found in black. It is said that only 1-2 carats out of 3000 carats mined are natural fancy diamonds, which explains the very high price tag for these unusual stones. However, there is another way to incorporate sparkling, fancy coloured diamonds into everyday pieces jewellery, without having to spend a small fortune…

Scientists in the diamond industry have discovered a variety of techniques which may change a low graded yellowy –brown, cut and polished diamond into a colourless or fancy coloured diamond which are so desirable in the jewellery world. Initial methods, such as radium treatments, modified the colour of diamonds but left diamonds highly radioactive, to the point where the diamonds would be a danger to wear; however technologies have moved on a great deal since then. There are now much safer ways to change a dull diamond to a dazzling colourful stone.

There are many ways in which the diamond industry is treating low graded diamonds; there are safe forms of irradiation, diamond coatings, as well as high-pressure high-temperature treatments. But the technique that our diamond dealers use, combines electronic beaming and heat treatment to alter a diamonds colour, and is seen as a mechanical simulation of how a diamond is created in nature. The electronic beaming changes the atomic structure of the diamond, whilst the heat treatment fixes the colour, and this way of treating diamonds is 100% safe and non-radioactive!

Different diamonds, timings and temperatures can affect the colour that the diamond turns into. Dull brown diamonds can turn a stunning sky blue or cognac colour, whilst murky yellow diamonds can turn into a vibrant yellow or green. There is also a 1% possibility that these yellowy diamonds will turn pink, theoretically making the production of heat treated pink diamonds a fault! Due to this, the supply of heat treated pink diamonds is very hard to control.

We have designed several dazzling pink engagement rings, which have included some beautiful, treated fancy diamonds, and this one is one of my particular favourites:

This delicate platinum ring, holds a 0.27ct, pear cut, treated pink diamond, and is a striking example of how an initially unappealing stone may be turned into something amazing!

Colored diamonds are becoming a new style in several ways. They are a relatively fresh concept, with some stones ranging from white to yellow and others tinted blue or pink. While the blue diamond’s have a manly touch, the pink diamonds have a more feminine appeal. Generally they are designed for women of all ages and backgrounds. They are commonly mounted on a band of gold or silver, so as to not distract from the brilliant coloring in the stone.

These pink diamond gems will be used for several purposes. They are stunning accents that look great with a casual outfit but they can also be made in an engagement style. The bands are also customizable in their design. Some may be textured and etched while others are the classic smooth band. The most textured of the bands is a rope style. Several smaller ropes are injure together to create one singular band.

The stones themselves occasionally take on an imaginative air. They are sometimes created into square, ovals and ovals to emphasize their luster, cut and color. A nontraditional prong-free mounting is available as well.

There are numerous options available concerning style for these pink diamond rings. They can come in modern, traditional or classic designs. When choosing the vintage style the tops are going to be bigger and more embellished, on occasion using other stones of smaller size. A modern ring design is more likely to be in an attractive shape combined with an intricate band. It is becoming more and more general to use abstract visuals when designing modern rings. When it’s set with other, smaller, stones it becomes more of a classic or engagement style. Normally the two smaller stones are white or of a similar color, set right next to the pink stone.

This is the most typical of wedding or engagement style rings.

The most frequent styles are, the princess, teardrop, square, and oval cuts etc. Custom made cuts are more luxurious, but make more of an impact. The bands can be platinum, yellow or white gold, and sterling silver. As with most other gems and metals they are sold by the combined weight of both the gem and metal. Anyone wanting to make a statement with their jewelry will find the perfect match in a pink diamond ring.
