Red Diamonds

The distortion of the atomic lattice in some diamonds, known as ‘plastic deformation’, led to the formation of natural red diamonds.
Natural red diamonds are the rarest of all natural color stones. So much so that fewer than 10 such diamonds are produced annually in the whole world. Moreover, only a relatively small number of red diamonds have ever received the grade of fancy red - the purest form of red diamonds. They frequently contain modifying colors, including pink, purple and brown, thus providing a mixed effect.

However, in contrast to other color diamonds where traces of additional colors usually reduce the price, a brownish or purplish-red can cost almost as much as a fancy red, since the base color – red – in itself is so rare.

It is believed that there are only 35 flawless red diamonds weighing less than 1 carat in the world.
Red diamonds’ secondary colors include Purplish, Brownish, and Orangy.
