It is the holy grail of the natural fancy colored diamonds. To own a pink diamond is to be the master of an unparalleled heirloom; to gaze upon it is to view profound and overflowing beauty.

The famous French fortune-hunter & merchant Jean Baptiste Tavernier (best-known for acquiring of the ‘Tavernier Blue Diamond’ & subsequently selling it to Louis XIV) is believed to be the first to make a reference to pink diamonds near the beginning of the seventeenth century.

Tavernier talked about a rather large pink rough diamond weighing-up over 200 carats. The Moghuls showed him this exquisite gemstone in the Kingdom of Golconda in 1642. Called the ‘The Grand Table’ and estimated to cost Rupees 600,000 at the time, it remains the largest pink diamond in recorded history. The French merchant also procured two pale-pink diamonds in the year 1668 and penciled in the pictures of the stones in his travel book.

Fancy colored diamonds acquire their hues from disturbances during their formation process taking place deep inside the earth. Barring pinks, greens and browns, the color in other fancy colored diamonds occur because of trace elements interfering in the crystal formation. A diamond is composed of pure carbon. Atoms of other elements intrude into the pure carbon crystalline structure and cause the color. Nitrogen causes yellows while Boron causes blue.

The intense pressure beneath the Earth’s surface is believed to cause a non-reversible change in the crystal lattice of the diamond causing it to absorb certain spectrum of light and producing the pink color. The process is called ‘plastic deformation.’ It is incredible and nothing compares to its color and brilliance, & it is significantly more valuable than its white diamond equivalent.

Argyle holds a veritable monopoly on the world’s pink diamond market. They conduct aggressive marketing campaigns to drive home this advantage, driving an already existing robust demand through the roof.

The combination of extreme popularity and a more extreme scarcity (a year’s hard-work in the mines hardly yields a handful)  makes the pink diamonds pretty expensive.

Size of the diamond and its color intensity are the key factors influencing the value of pink diamonds. Prices just explode with the increase in size and color intensity.

“What makes it so immensely rare is the combination of its exceptional color and purity with the classic emerald-cut,” said David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s European and the Middle Eastern jewelry departments. “It’s a style of cutting normally associated with white diamonds and one that is so highly sought-after when found in rare colors such as pink and blue.”

It is so profoundly rare that the jewel has been classified as type IIa diamond, which makes up of less than two percent of the world’s diamonds.
