Discover Hoskings’ gorgeous range of rare blush pink diamond jewellery. Australian Argyle pink diamond jewellery makes a luxurious change from white diamonds. Master jewellers work with hand selected coloured diamonds, only choosing the finest Argyle diamonds for their jewellery. We know you’ll adore our Kimberley range of Blush pink diamond rings, pendants and earrings.
Blush pink diamonds get their beautiful pink colour from unique geological factors that cause a natural distortion in the crystal structure. These distortions cause lattice-shaped bands in the crystal. The lattice effect causes the light to be absorbed into the diamond in a specific wavelength that gives the blush pink diamonds their pink colour. Jewellers then cut and polish the diamonds to make the most of the colour.
In a small percentage of diamonds, the presence of the trace mineral, nitrogen will also add a stronger pink hue to the diamond.
Yes, pink diamonds are rare because they’re only found in a handful of places around the world. Pink diamonds were first discovered in South-East India and have also been found in Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Canada. However, the world’s biggest producer of blush pink diamonds was the Argyle mine in Kimberley, Western Australia.
Although nearly 90% of all the world's pink diamonds came from the Argyle mine, the mine closed in 2020, so pink diamonds will continue to be one of the rarest diamonds. Hoskings is very fortunate to have a stunning collection of blush pink diamond jewellery, available in selected stores and online. You’ll find blush pink diamond earrings, blush pink diamond necklets and pendants, and a stunning collection of blush pink diamond rings that make perfect engagement rings.
- A specialised cleaning cloth like these Connoisseur cleaning cloths will help you keep your pink diamond looking sparkly.
- We suggest you remove your pink diamond jewellery if you’re taking part in any activity that might cause you to damage or lose your precious diamonds. For example if you’re going surfing, gardening or mountain bike riding, it’s best to store your pink diamond jewellery in a soft jewellery pouch or jewellery box.
- If you wear your pink diamond jewellery every day, then it’s a good idea to gently wash it every week.
- Simply mix mild dish soap with warm water and soak your jewellery for 15 – 20 minutes.
- If there’s any grimy build-up, use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub your jewellery to remove any residue.
- Rinse the pink diamond jewellery under warm running water to remove any remaining soap, taking care not to let it fall down the plug hole.
- Then pat dry with a lint-free cloth.
Let’s face it, all diamonds are spectacular, but there’s something extra special about pink diamonds. In our blog post “Pink diamonds explained” we explain what makes pink diamonds so alluring. The main difference between pink diamonds and clear diamonds is the colour (obviously)! Clear diamonds are valued for their clarity and lack of colour. Whereas pink diamonds are revered for their delicious pink colour, which ranges from a delicate pastel blush colour to darker, vibrant pinks.
The other big difference is that pink diamonds are only found in a few places in the world, making them even more rare and precious than clear diamonds.
There’s no one best setting for pink diamonds – it really comes down to which setting you prefer. At Hoskings we’ve found that the most popular settings for pink diamonds include halo settings and pave settings. In the halo setting, the pink diamonds are surrounded by a ring of smaller clear diamonds that accentuate the centre stone. This also works well with cluster settings, where many smaller pink diamonds are grouped together in a cluster for a spectacular sparkly effect.
In the pave setting, the pink diamonds are set closely together along the band, adding sparkles at every turn.
Choosing a complementary metal will also maximize the look of the pink diamond. We think that white gold with a touch of rose gold is the best setting for pink diamonds as it highlights the beauty of the pink diamond.
