The romance of a natural diamond cannot be matched: formed within volcanic tubes over billions of years of heat and pressure, diamonds are a gorgeous rarity that signify true love and affection. Diamonds are the only gems composed of a single element, carbon. Yet despite their homogenous chemical makeup, each diamond is as unique as a snowflake.

Natural diamonds are graded according to the 4 C’s — color, clarity, cut, and carat. They range from nearly clear to a subtle yellow color. Clarity refers to the amount of inclusions. Combined, color and clarity can help you determine how pure your diamond is. Cut tells you which shape the diamond is, and carat refers to the size (weight) of the diamond. Altogether, the 4 C’s can tell you how valuable your diamond is from a monetary point of view, but they pale in comparison to the sentimental and emotional value of a diamond.

Yes — diamonds are thought of as colorless, but depending on the conditions in which they were formed, they can be naturally colored. Typical diamond colors range from pink to yellow to blue and all the way to black. Pink diamonds are particularly special, as scientists still do not know what makes them pink. Yellow diamonds are formed in the presence of nitrogen, and blue diamonds include the chemical boron.
Every natural diamond is unique, like a fingerprint. Just like everything in nature, no two natural diamonds are identical, unlike mass-produced lab-created diamonds. Natural diamonds are formed over billions of years, and therefore there is a finite supply available. With a limit on the natural diamonds available, prices increase in response. Lab-grown, on the other hand, can be easily mass produced. It's likely that lab-grown diamond production will continue to get cheaper and cheaper as competition grows, forcing producers to keep lowering their sales price for these stones.
