One of the rarest colored diamonds
Receiving blue diamond rings is very impressive but also a true investment. Blue diamonds are among one of the rarest colored diamonds together with green and red diamonds. Blue diamond rings are therefore very special. Due to the rarity of these diamonds, the prices are much higher than for example yellow, brown or colorless diamonds, depending on cut and carat. While colorless diamonds were once the norm in the celebrity world, colored diamonds are now extremely popular. Large brown colored diamonds, yellow diamonds or pink colored diamonds are now a must-have luxury item in Hollywood. However, some celebrities want blue diamond rings but it is hard to find and expensive. But the lucky Hong Kong movie star Michelle Yeoh did receive a blue diamond from Jean Todt, a Ferrari motor racing team director. The blue diamond ring was not even an engagement ring, but “just” a gift.
The unique diamond color formation
The diamonds that are mounted in blue diamond rings have gone through a unique color formation. The color of a blue diamond is caused by the presence of boron atoms deep down in the earth. This color formation is not a common situation, it only happens sometimes. In fact, less than 0.1% of all natural diamonds are blue diamonds.
The color of blue diamond rings can be from faint to fancy deep. If the concentration of boron becomes higher, the blue color becomes more intense. Therefore some blue diamonds are grayish blue, turquoise or aquamarine because these colored diamonds have had long exposure to natural radiation. These aquamarine and turquoise colored diamonds are even rarer than the faint blue diamond. Try to imagine a proposal with blue diamond rings – your loved one will definitely be amazed.
