If you’ve ever tried buying men’s colored diamond rings, you may have realized that the price of different colored diamonds varies by a huge margin. This is because the pricing of natural colored diamonds is primarily based on the color it carries, and the 4 C’s that should be taken into account. Apparently, the price of a colored diamond is directly proportional to the intensity of color it has. In simple terms, a deep colored orange diamond will be priced much more than a stone that has comparatively fainter tone, hue, and saturation.
As all natural colored diamonds come with a certificate of authenticity, it is often considered a valued investment option. In fact, colored diamonds are compact and stronger, they have a better size to value ratio, they do not need registration as an asset, and they often garner a higher return after a couple of years – all these facts surely make it a worthy investment. That is why orange diamonds with an intense color saturation are longed and desired more by gems and diamonds collectors.
Interestingly, the recent trends and demands for men’s colored diamond rings have led to an increase in the price of orange diamonds. As per the auction house records of Christie’s, they sold a 14.82 carat Fancy Vivid orange diamond of VS1 clarity featuring pear cut for a whopping price of $2.4 million per carat. The overall price of the orange diamond was about $36 million.
