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. Given 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.
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. This category of diamonds includes the variety of diamonds called yellow diamonds and brown diamonds and even rare colours like orange, purple, blue, green, red and even pink. 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 good to note that colored diamonds can be graded for color and the color description is often a composition of two or even three colours. 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. Any buyer can gauge the amount of color in the diamond 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 method of description also works with the other colours too such as purple pink, purplish pink, orange pink versus orangy pink. It is not uncommon for diamonds to have three color combinations such as brownish purplish pink or brownish orangy pink.
A Simple Plan: Diamonds
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. Fancy on the other hand encompasses various categories ranging from fancy light; plain fancy, fancy intense; fancy deep and lastly fancy vivid. It is good to state that 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.The Ultimate Guide to Services
