Pink diamonds come in all different shades, and just like other colored diamonds, they can be graded faint, very light, light, fancy light, fancy intense, fancy deep and fancy vivid. The more intense the color of the diamond, the higher the price of the diamond. Therefore, a natural pink diamond that is a rich and pure pink color, thus graded Fancy Vivid Pink, is exponentially more expensive than a Fancy Light Pink or Fancy Pink diamond.
Pink diamonds often come with a secondary hue, which can be described as purple-pink or orange-pink. Because of this, you’ll never find a pink diamond that looks the same.
Among the most valuable coloured diamonds are pink ones, and may cost up to 20 times the price of its white equivalent. According to the Argyle Mine, one carat pink diamond can cost from $100,000 up to $1 million. The price will depend on the colour intensity, cut, clarity, and shape. The secondary hue can also make a big difference in the value and price. A brown secondary hue, for example, is more common to come by, and therefore, may result in a more affordable pink stone. However, a purplish pink diamond may be priced higher.
