Diamonds are rare. That’s one of the many things that makes them special. But the rarest of all diamonds is the pink diamond. Find one of those, and you’ve got something truly special.
What Makes Pink Diamonds So Rare?
While pink diamonds have been found around the world in places ranging from Brazil to Canada and Siberia to South Africa, most pink diamonds come to us from Australia. Like white diamonds, pink diamonds are formed only of carbon, spending millions of years in the kimberlite pipes of volcanoes.
Colored diamonds increase in value depending on the intensity of the color. With white diamonds, the lack of color is what makes them valuable. But pink is in a category all by itself. So rare that nothing compares to its color brilliance or value. Even a pink diamond less than 1 carat comes with a price tag that might be a bit jaw-dropping.
