Pink Diamond Simulant Rings
The color pink has long been associated with love so it’s no surprise pink diamond simulant rings are gaining in popularity.
For the last 70 – 80 years, white diamonds have been the “traditional” centre stone for an engagement ring. This is due mostly in part to billions of dollars of advertising money from huge companies like De Beers and others.
In more recent times we have noticed many new approaches to purchasing a centre stone for an engagement ring. As the cost of natural diamonds and gold rose sharply, shoppers found that their hard earned cash just didn’t stretch as hard as they had hoped. That’s when creativity took over and beautiful and budget friendly diamond simulant alternatives gained ground.
What is a diamond simulant? Simply, a diamond simulant is a stone that looks similar to real diamond and shares some of its characteristics. Although simulants are used as diamond imitations, they have a different chemical structure from real diamonds. Some simulants occur naturally, while others are created artificially. Some examples of popular pink diamond simulants include cubic zirconia, pink zircon, pink topaz, spinel and pink sapphire.
Globally, natural pink diamonds have been found only in a few locations. Historically, southern India was an important source in the 17th century. In the past few decades, the Argyle mine in Australia had been the most important source of pink diamonds but finds here became increasing rare. Subsequently a combination of rising costs as the mine deepened, flat diamond prices and a low average price per carat sealed Argyle’s fate leading to a decision by its owner, the Anglo-Australian mining giant, Rio Tinto, to close the gates in 2020. According to Rio Tinto Ltd., the owner of the mine, pink diamond accounts for less than 1% of total production. No wonder then that natural pink diamonds are among the most treasured of colored diamonds, and fancy intense / vivid pink diamonds readily command prices in excess of $100,000 per carat.
Luxuria’s pink diamond simulant engagement rings use very high grade cubic zirconia and are priced at less than 1% of real deal. Like natural precious diamond gemstones, pink diamond simulants such as cubic zirconia stones are graded according to carat, color, clarity and cut, but use a scale of A to AAAAA, A being the lowest and AAAAA being the highest. While 5A is the best grade among machine-cut CZ, even higher grading is possible via hand-cut.
