Choosing a pink diamond for eternity is a complex mission, but not impossible. These are some of the most practical tips to not fail in the choice.

The four diamond evaluation criteria are defined in English as the Four Cs : Cut, Carat, Clarity, Color.

The size

By it we mean the angles and proportions of a pink diamond. Based on complex scientific formulas, a very well cut diamond will reflect light from one facet to another (like a mirror) and scatter it, reflecting it across the top of the diamond (across the table). If the diamond is very well cut, then it will have an optimal brilliance, we will speak of diamond fires. A pink diamond can also be cut too flat or too coarse. In these cases the light will not be optimally reflected and the brilliance of the diamond will be affected.

Weight

The weight of a pink diamond is expressed in carats: 1 carat equals 0.20 grams . One carat can be divided into 100 points. A 0.75 carat diamond is equal to a 75 point diamond and is equal to a 3/4 carat diamond. Pink Diamonds Melbourne uses different types of scales to measure the weight of diamonds. Carat is a measurement that also applies to other gemstones and fine stones; This measurement has nothing to do with the karat of the gold alloys and should not be confused. Pink diamond weighing 0.9990 is advertised as 1.00 carats and a diamond weighing 0.9989 is advertised as 0.99 carats.

Purity

Pink diamonds with little or no inclusion are very rare and therefore very expensive . These inclusions can look like crystals, clouds, or tiny threads or plumes. International standards established that a diamond is considered pure from the moment in which the eye of an expert would not discover any defect with a magnifying glass of 10 times (10 times).

There is a purity scale that classifies diamond, which includes the following degrees of purity : FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, SI3, P1, P2, P3.

The color

A colorless diamond is a colorless diamond . The color of a diamond has a significant impact on its price. The white diamond industry uses color scales to classify them, which range from D to Z, from colorless (colorless) to light yellow.

The scale begins with D as Diamond, there is no A, B or C

There are also diamonds of all colors: blue, red, pink, green, yellow, black, champagne, cognac, etc … Some are very, very rare: red, green, blue, etc.

The best pink colour grades to consider are saturation of 1 – 6, in colours Purplish Pink (PP) and Pink (P) followed by Pink Rose (PR) since these have definite pink hue visible to the naked eye.

Pink Diamonds in the light, with certificate and good finish

This gemological report includes all the main characteristics of the diamond, it is a true diamond identity card and cannot be confused with another.

But a certificate is not a guarantee of quality because, in effect, a diamond can have a certificate but be of poor quality (poor purity, colors, proportions, polished, symmetry, fluorescence, etc.). Hence the importance of knowing how to “decipher” a certificate and reading it carefully. A small sentence on the certificate, such as Clarity enhanced or Color enhanced, should make you react immediately, since that will cause the value of the diamond to drop dramatically.

When considering the shape of a diamond for investment it is wise to prefer traditional fancy cuts such as asscher, emerald, oval, pear, marquise, radiant, cushion, heart, princess and round brilliant shape diamonds, as these are considered more desirable, are better known and may return a greater profit over a non-traditional modified fancy shapes.
