What is a Blue Diamond?

Blue diamonds are rare, beautiful and expensive. They're also known as fancy colored diamonds. Because of the rarity involved in obtaining them, blue diamonds can be worth tens of thousands of dollars per carat.

Blue diamonds owe their color to trace amounts of boron in the diamond lattice. The presence of this element causes a defect in crystal structure that makes it possible for light waves to be scattered into the range we perceive as blue or purple instead of red or yellow.

While there is no standard definition for what constitutes a "true" blue diamond (aside from being clear), most people agree that pure blues should have a deep purplish hue rather than appear dark or black.

How are Blue Diamonds Made?

Blue diamonds are created by both nature and man. They are also found in nature, but they are not as rare as you might think. They are much rarer than other diamonds, but not as rare as you might think.

They’re much more common than other diamonds, but less common than you might think.

Are Blue Diamonds Rare?

Blue diamonds are not as rare as pink diamonds. However, they are still quite uncommon when compared to white diamonds. This is because blue diamonds, especially those with fancy color hues, are extremely difficult to find in nature and have been for centuries.

While it’s possible for a blue diamond miner to stumble upon one in the ground, this is very unlikely; the only way you can expect to find one is through a reputable dealer or jeweler who works directly with miners and their suppliers.

As such, they’re much more expensive than other colored jewels like pink or yellow diamonds and white ones too!

How to Value a Blue Diamond?

Blue diamonds are rare, and therefore very expensive. They are also more valuable than white diamonds because of their rarity. The price of a blue diamond is determined by the color intensity and saturation, depth, clarity and other factors such as cut and carat weight.

The price range for a blue diamond starts from $10 000 per carat up to $25 000 per carat depending on its quality level (color intensity).
