HOW TO BUY DIAMONDS
WHY DOES THE COLOR VARY?
In the chaos of extreme temperature and pressure that first created the diamond, traces of elements like nitrogen and boron could have been incorporated into the diamond’s structure. These traces give the diamond its color or lack of it. Diamonds with no hint of color are very rare. However, diamonds with strong color are also rare. These are called “Fancies.” Red, pink, and blue are the most prized, but virtually all colors are possible.
