Natural fancy color diamonds are not only stunning, but also incredibly rare. In fact, only one of every 10,000 diamond carats that are mined is that of a color diamond. Though they are few in comparison to their colorless counterparts, color diamonds are found in nearly every corner of the globe.
From Australia to Africa to Siberia and India, color diamonds are mined all around the world. Here is a breakdown of the various countries where different color diamonds are found and a little information regarding the mines responsible for uncovering them.
Pink diamonds do not need any introduction, as they are extremely popular and loved by all due to their unique soft hue.
With the exception of red diamonds, the most expensive natural diamond color on the market today is high-quality pink. The cost of a pink diamond will range from $10,000 per carat for a less intense pink diamond to $700,000 per carat for a deep and intense pink diamond. The color intensity and carat weight of pink diamonds are the two most important factors that influence their price.
The Argyle mine in Australia may be famous for its pink diamonds, but the mine also produces a fair number of smaller blue diamonds.
The price of a 0.3 carat light blue diamond costs $15,700 on average. The price of a 0.5 carat light blue diamond is $26,280 on average. Deep blue and vivid blue diamonds cost much more—around $75,000 for a 0.25 carat diamond. As you increase in color intensity and carat weight, blue diamond prices extend beyond $100,000, $200,000, and more. For instance, this 0.84 Fancy Intense Blue Marquise Diamond from Leibish & Co. is priced at $336,100. A blue diamond’s value greatly increases with more intense color.
