Evaluating the color of pink diamonds There is more to look for other than just the color pink when buying such diamonds. During a color evaluation, there are three major factors to consider; hue, tone, and saturation. Hue This is the visible color of the diamond – whatever your eyes can see. The primary hue of a pink diamond is pink (of course). However, other secondary hues can be found in the same diamond. There are pink diamonds that do not have any secondary shades in them and are more expensive than those with them. In essence, if a pink diamond has any secondary hues, the ones which enhance the primary color are pricier than the ones which detract it. Colors that add value to a pink diamond are purple and orange. Brown is mostly known to reduce the worth of the diamond.

Tone This is a characteristic that guides you on how dark or light a fancy diamond is. Stones that have a defined tone are more desirable hence pricier compared to those without a discernible primary color. Pink diamonds, for instance, are graded with categories such as; Faint Pink, Very Light Pink, Light Pink, Fancy Light Pink, Fancy Pink, Fancy Intense Pink, Fancy Vivid Pink, Fancy Dark Pink, and Fancy Deep Pink.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
