Saturation Saturation basically stands for the intensity of the diamond's color. Diamonds that have a more intense color are more expensive. As a rule of thumb, pink diamonds which have a more intense saturation will cost more than those with a faint one. Carat Weight Bigger pink diamonds are scarce and are proportionally more expensive when bought. If aiming for a 0.3 – 0.4-carat diamond, be ready to pay lots of money for it. Keep in mind that pink diamonds which have a 0.5 carat or higher are more expensive and rarer to find. Natural or treated? Natural pink diamonds are very rare and quite pricy. As a result, vendors have resorted to processing synthetically colored stones, which are more affordable. Some vendors even subject naturally colorless diamonds to HPHT/High- Pressure High-Temperature or Irradiation to alter the color.

Synthetic pink diamonds which are manufactured in labs are also inexpensive, despite having the same chemical structures as the natural stones. Before buying any pink diamonds, ensure that you are provided with their certification indicating whether the diamonds are natural, synthetic, or have been altered to change their color.

    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.

    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.
