BLUE DIAMOND

Symbolic of pace, calm and freedom, blue diamonds are especially rare. The presence of boron in the carbon lattice of a diamond allows electricity to pass through, creating a beautiful blue colour. The more boron in a diamond’s structure, the more intense the shade.

BLACK DIAMOND

Like fancy blue diamonds, it is the presence of boron that forms a black diamond. These relatively unknown treasures are considered alongside red and orange diamonds as the most coveted colours. Black diamonds often house hints of blue at their centres and have come to represent wisdom and security.

Natural fancy grey diamonds claim provenance in Australia, Brazil, India, Russia and South Africa. Two percent of the overall yield from the famed Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia, which produces more natural pink diamonds than any other mine in the world, consists of grey diamonds.

CHAMPAGNE DIAMOND

Colour, intensity and rarity are the most important factors when selecting exceptional coloured diamonds. Citrus and amber shades can be found in natural diamonds, but pure champagne diamonds are among the rarest in the world. These nitrogen-rich diamonds are said to evoke feelings of courage.

Champagne diamonds come from kimberlite and lamproite pipes. Major kimberlite deposits can be found in Africa, Russia, Canada, India, Brazil, and Australia. Most champagne diamonds come from the Argyle diamond pipe in Western Australia, the only economically viable lamproite pipe discovered to date.

COGNAC DIAMOND

Rich shades of cognac, cinnamon and chocolate are all part of the cognac diamond family. This fancy colour is formed from high pressure and temperature deep below the ground, which is perhaps why they are romantically linked to stability and reassurance.

PINE DIAMOND

Sought after pine diamonds are created when natural, and completely harmless, radiation is absorbed into a diamond over millions of years. This process is so specific and so rare that green diamonds have become highly prized. Pine is associated with balance and harmony, while also representing new beginnings.

Only a few instances of naturally occurring green diamonds have been documented in history, but several trace back to South America, in countries such as Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana. There have also been cases of such diamonds originating from mines in Africa.
