Natural Pear Diamond

Natural Pear Diamond

A pink diamond ring reflects a creative and artistic personality of the lucky person who wears one. Rare and beautiful, pink hue diamonds are owned by celebrities and the very rich. Those of us not in that category can enjoy their beauty in inexpensive replicas that modern technology has produced. These are known as inspired rings. These synthetic pink diamonds can look so real that it is difficult even for professional jewelers to recognize. It takes special equipment to determine the authenticity of a natural pink gem diamond.

The world’s supply of natural pink colored diamonds is being depleted, so the price will continue to escalate. The Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia produces 90 percent of the world’s diamonds. Pink colored diamonds comprise of only one tenth of one percent of those and officials say that that supply will run out in a few years. The value of a pink diamond is determined by color, clarity, and absence of flaws. The more intense the color, the more expensive the diamond will be. Colors range from a light pink to a purplish red. It is thought that during the hundreds of years the diamond was being formed, certain minerals were present that contributed to the color.

Pink Diamond Engagement Ring

Who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive a pink hued diamond engagement ring? When a celebrity receives one the media is quick to report it. We heard about the 1.2 million dollar pink engagement ring that Ben Affeck gave to Jennifer Lopez. We also read about Mariah Carey’s pink diamond engagement ring. Soccer player David Becham gave his wife a 10-carat pink diamond ring with matching earrings. That must have put a slight dent in his pocketbook.

If you have 10 million dollars to invest, you might check out the Graff Vivid Pink Pear Shaped Diamond Ring or the Harry Winston Fancy Intense Pink Diamond, 10-carat ring. You can find these online. If buying a natural pink diamond on line it is extremely important to deal with a reputable jeweler and make sure you get an authentic certification.

No matter what kind of ring you decide to purchase for the special someone in your life, make sure your motivations aren’t just to find the most expensive, but the one that will truly be special.

How do I find the best quality and cut diamond for an engagement ring?

Favorite shape diamonds: pear and marquis. I like platinum and white gold.

Get a GIA certified diamond and make it a very good cut (normally I’d say excellent, but GIA doesn’t recognize an excellent cut in fancy shape diamonds). You can save a ton by getting an SI1 or SI2 clarity diamond that is eye clean (meaning that you can’t see any inclusions with the naked eye) compared to higher clarity diamonds. Also, stick to a D, E, or F colored diamond (colorless). If you do this, you’ll save a ton AND come out with a much nicer diamond.

I do free diamond searches at http://diamonds.beforeproposing.com and I constantly see people trying to buy crappy diamonds for double of what they should pay. Feel free to give my site a look and e-mail me if you’re interested!

Take care,

In choosing the perfect engagement ring for your beau, aside from the price and the size of stone, an important consideration is the shape of the gem as well. The pear shape diamond engagement ring may not be a conventional choice but any engagement rings that profess love are truly fit for the woman you love.

The pear diamond engagement ring is also known as the teardrop shape. It is actually a cross between the oval and marquise shape of stone. You may have seen this type of engagement ring as popular cuts for earrings and pendants but lately this type of shape is making its way on engagement rings as well.

Unknown to many, the pear shape diamond engagement ring or teardrop diamond is cut and perfected by a Flemish in the name of Lodweyk Van Berquem as early as the 1400′s. Although this diamond engagement ring did not gain much popularity because gemologist and jewelers feel the design was a waste of diamond.

Since this diamond is cut in a way that one end is round and elongated and the other tip is pointed, so most part of the gem is cut away.

Fortunately with the advancement in technology, different machines and methods for cutting the diamond is invented so not much of the diamond is wasted. The pear diamond engagement ring would be perfect as a solitaire but you can have it styled set and designed with other stones or precious gems to accentuate the diamond itself.

The most controversial pear diamond ring would probably be the one actor Richard Burton gave to his lady love Elizabeth Taylor. It was a 69.42 carat pear diamond. Eventually it was sold in 1979 for three million dollars $3M that helped build a hospital in Botswana.

The Diamonds in the Smithsonian’s Exhibit

The Smithsonian’s Splendor of Diamonds was a display of seven of the rarest diamonds in the world. The diamonds ranged in size from 5.11 carats to 203.04 carats. The exhibit ran from June 27, 2003 to September 15, 2003. The seven diamonds displayed were the Allnatt, the Millennium Star, the Ocean Dream, the Moussaieff Red, the Heart of Eternity, the Steinmetz Pink, and the Pumpkin Diamond.

The Allnatt is a cushion-cut, Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond, as rated by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA.) It is currently owned by the SIBA Corporation and has a mass of 101.29 carats. Its yellow color is due to a certain concentration of Nitrogen impurities within the carbon structure. The Allnatt’s rarity comes from its size and its color- few diamonds with a mass greater than 100 carats can retain such a vivid color, which makes these diamonds perfect for money back guarantee diamonds, since nobody would want to return such a unique diamond.

The Allnatt Diamond

The De Beers Millennium Star is the sixth largest known colorless diamond of gemstone quality that has ever been found. It is the second largest flawless, colorless pear cut diamond. The lack of color in the Millennium Star means that it is made entirely from crystallized carbon. There are no impurities from other elements, no defects in its structure, no irradiation during the growth process.

The Millennium Star is owned by the De beers company. It originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the early 1990s. The original diamond was 777 carats (155.4 g.) It went to the Steinmetz group three years to laser-cut and polish the rough crystal to its 203.04 carat pear shape. There was some debate concerning whether the diamond was a “blood diamond” or a “non conflict diamond” since it was from an area rich in war diamonds, but this truth was never proven and cleared the Kimberley Process.

The Ocean Dream is a 5.51 carat (1.102 g), Fancy Deep Blue-Green diamond, as rated by the GIA. It is one of the rarest diamonds in the world, for it is the only natural diamond known to the GIA to be of a blue-green color. Blue green is normally seen in synthetic or artificially altered diamonds. In order to achieve such a hue, the diamond color must be altered via irradiation. The Ocean Dream was exposed to millions of years of the earth’s natural radiation- causing its blue-green color.

The Moussaieff Red is a 5.11 carat (1.022 g), trilliant cut, fancy red diamond, as rated by the GIA. Red, especially a deep red, is one of the rarest hues found in a diamond. The Moussaieff is the largest Fancy Red diamond that the GIA have ever seen. It was found by a farmer in Brazil in the mid 1990s, where it was purchased as a rough crystal of 13.9 carats (2.78 g) by William Goldberg Diamond Corp. The crystal was cut, polished, and named the Red Shield. It was bought by the Moussaieff Jewelers Ltd and renamed.

The Heart of Eternity is a 27.64 carat (5.528 g), heart cut, Fancy Vivid Blue diamond, rated by the GIA. This diamond originates from South Africa. It was cut by the Steinmetz Company, who sold it to the De Beers Company. The blue color is due to boron impurities in the carbon structure of the diamond. Very few “blue” diamonds are of such vivid color, for often the boron is only located in certain sections of the stone, or the color is extremely desaturated and mixed with shades of gray.

Like many diamonds, the Steinmetz Pink originates from South Africa. It is owned by Steinmetz Company, has a mass of 59.60 carats, and is internally flawless. The GIA diamond rings Institute (the world’s foremost authority on diamonds) confirmed it to be the largest Fancy Vivid Pink diamond that they had ever seen. It took twenty months to prepare, cut, and polish.

At 5.54 carats (1.108g), the Pumpkin Diamond is one of the largest Fancy Vivid Orange diamonds that the GIA have ever rated. It originated from the Central African Republic, where it was cut and polished by William Goldberg. The Pumpkin Diamond was bought by Ronald Winston for 1.3 million dollars, though it is currently valued at three million dollars. It was set in a ring between two white diamonds for actress Halle Berry to wear to the 2002 Oscars.

What exactly is a knife cut diamond?

Also, how can I style a wedding ring with 9 small diamonds to sit under a pear shaped knife cut solitare engagement ring.

I’m guessing a knife cut diamond is cut with a knife instead of a laser or saw. (Probably more expensive?)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_cutting#Cleaving_or_sawing

(this is my idea, but i don’t know…The smaller diamonds would have to be sparsely spread about the central diamond)
