The Value of Coloured Diamonds

The Value of Coloured Diamonds

The clarity, transparency and scarcity of a colourless diamond is typically what comes to mind when people think of these precious gemstones. But, the value of coloured diamonds can also be immense, as shown by such legendary stones as The Hope Diamond and The Moussaieff Red.

The combination of colours is also what makes coloured diamonds so unique. Finding a gem that is a mixture of two rare colours gives it a look and value like nothing else. What also adds to their prestige is the often mysterious history of gems like The Supreme Purple Heart and The Golden Eye Diamond. Their disputed ownership, history and rumours of a curse only add to the fame and excitement that surrounds them and other celebrity gems.
