Even though it is a known fact that diamond value is based partly on the absence of color, colored diamonds are not just fascinating to have, but also offer other benefits. Usually, when people say diamonds, the usual mage that would come to mind are the colorless ones. After all, when ladies buy their diamonds or are given diamonds by their parents or partners, they usually appear a bright white. These are the diamonds of the highest purity. 

But colored diamonds exist. They come in a myriad of colors. Through the years, there is also a recognition of colored diamonds’ value. Not only do they appeal to certain people aesthetically, but some have also claimed that each color serves one purpose - usually aligning with certain spiritual or emotional goals. If you want to have some colored diamonds and unsure what colors are out there and what they mean, then check out the list made below: 

According to Geology.com, diamonds get their colors for specific reasons. Some research also shows that specific color may mean something. It’s good to know that before getting your girlfriend a ring in orange when it said friendship.

Pink - Pink is one of the rare colors in diamonds. Diamonds become pink when they are subjected to stress, leading to glide planes' carbon atom displacement. When the light goes in the planes, a red light can be transmitted. It will appear pink because of weak, selective transmission. Pure red is unlikely to occur. 

Pink diamond symbolizes love.
