In the past 10-20 years there has been an insatiable demand for natural coloured diamonds. Certain colours are incredibly popular and the colours in high demand do change over time. At this precise moment pinks, blues and greens are very popular.
A coloured diamonds price is based on the same structure as a white diamond but because there are less of each natural coloured diamond available in the world in its raw state than a white diamond, this means that they fetch a higher price.
The Coloured diamonds that we always wish to purchase are those on a GIA certificate, as they are very accurate as to what they are. A GIA coloured diamond certificate will tell us certain key factors such as;
1) The weight, 2) The purity, 3) The shape, 4) The cut, 5) The intensity of the colour of the coloured diamond, 6) The colour distribution to ascertain if the colour of the diamond is consistent throughout all of the diamond.
Natural coloured diamonds that we wish to purchase include: 1. Pink, 2. Blue, 3. Red, 4. Green, 5. Yellow, 6. Orange, 7. Purple, 8. Champagne
