Luxurious Origins: How Pink Diamonds are Created?

Apart from exquisite spark, pink diamonds have fascinating origins to add to their appeal. Read on.


In the dazzling realm of fine jewelry, diamonds have always been highly prized. While white diamonds have traditionally symbolized elegance and sophistication, colored diamonds, especially the rare and beautiful pink diamonds, are now gaining attention. In this article, we'll delve into the origins, locations, and allure of these enchanting pink diamonds.

Legends Associated with Pink Diamonds

Pink diamonds have sparked legends about their origins, such as the belief that they were formed from Aphrodite's tears or the essence of sunsets. In Australia, a story suggests they came from the scales of a barramundi fish. However, scientists attribute their color to natural processes.

Pink lab-grown diamonds are created deep underground under intense heat and pressure, causing carbon atoms to rearrange and distort the crystal lattice, giving them their hue. Another theory suggests seismic shocks alter colorless diamonds' structure and color. Some scientists propose that trace elements like boron absorb light wavelengths, resulting in pink hues.

The Origin of Pink Lab-Grown Diamonds

Pink diamonds have a rich history, with their origins dating back to the 17th century. The first notable pink diamond was discovered in India by French merchant Jean-Baptiste Tavernier in 1642. Named "The Great Table," this diamond weighed over 200 carats and was valued at 600,000 rupees. Unfortunately, it disappeared after being stolen during an invasion.

In modern times, one of the most renowned sources of pink diamonds was the Argyle Mine in Western Australia's Kimberley region. This mine, which closed in 2020, supplied over 90% of the world's pink diamonds. Despite its closure, new pink diamond sources have emerged, ensuring a continued supply.

Pink diamonds have also been found in other locations, including Brazil, which is known for its vibrant and intensely colored stones; Russia, which has become a significant source in recent years; and Tanzania, where small quantities have been discovered with the potential for future production growth.

The Cost of Pink Diamonds: Natural vs. Lab-Grown

Pink diamonds are highly sought after and considered among the most coveted fancy-color diamonds. Their demand has driven prices to soar, making them exceptionally valuable. While not all pink diamonds come with exorbitant price tags, factors like intensity of color, carat weight, cut, and overall quality influence their cost. Prices can range from thousands to millions of dollars per carat, depending on these factors.

On the other hand, pink lab-grown diamonds, while still beautiful, are typically more affordable than their natural counterparts. Since they are created in a controlled laboratory environment, the supply of lab-grown pink diamonds is more consistent, leading to lower prices. Lab-grown pink diamonds can cost a fraction of the price of natural ones, making them a more accessible option for consumers who desire the beauty of pink diamonds without the high price tag.

The rising popularity of lab-grown pink diamonds

Lab-grown pink diamonds have become popular due to their association with opulence, luxury, and individuality. Wearing pink diamond rings, necklaces, or earrings signifies exclusivity and elegance. Celebrities and influencers often sport pink diamond jewelry, further elevating its desirability and trendiness.
