What Determines the Value of a Pink Color Diamond


The Color

Unlike with other fancy color diamonds such as blue (Boron), green (radioactivity), yellow (Nitrogen) and violet (Hydrogen), the direct cause of the main pink color in diamonds is still unknown. Based on evidence, what is known is that Fancy Color Pink Diamonds contain high pressure graining which results in a squeezed internal structure which some scientists believe is the source of the pink color. Because of this compression, pink diamonds rarely possess a high clarity grade. Typically, pink diamonds contain surface and internal graining lines, but this is expected and does not mean the diamond is lower quality or less valuable.



Color Intensity

All diamonds are evaluated by the same four main characteristics of diamond quality: Clarity, Cut, Carat Weight and Color. However, for a Fancy Color Diamond, color is the most important characteristic of all, as opposed to colorless diamonds where all of the factors together determine the quality and value.

The color intensity of a pink diamond is categorized as either Faint, Very Light, Light, Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Intense, Fancy Vivid, Fancy Deep or Fancy Dark intensity scores which are determined by the combinations of color that exist within the diamond, as illustrated below.

Pink Diamond Saturation

Complementary Hues

Like with any fancy color diamond, a pure, straight color is more valuable and is even more rare, however, most pink diamonds possess complementary colors or hues of either Brown, Gray, Orange or Purple or any combination of these colors.

The photo below illustrates different possible intensities and hues that can exist within a Fancy Pink Diamond.
