If you’re lucky enough to find a Red diamond, is about as lucky enough to win the lottery twice over. Red Diamonds of all colored diamonds are the rarest of them all. These unbelievably ultra rare diamonds are the most sought after worldwide, extremely hard to come by. So rare GIA records show that over 30 years from 1957 to 1987 there was no mention of a GIA lab report issued for a diamond with “red” as the only descriptive term.

Most Red diamonds have originated from the Argyle mine in Australia, producing some of the world’s most beautiful Pink and Blue diamonds; however, Red Diamonds can come from mines in Brazil, Russia, and India.

Red Diamonds vs. Color Diamonds

Typically color diamonds can be found in larger sizes, whereas as scarce rare Red diamonds are usually smaller when found. Like many other color diamonds, Fancy Red diamonds come in one pure color or secondary hues, including Purplish, Brownish, and Orangy. While other colors come in several intensity levels, Red diamonds come in one intensity level alone: Fancy Red.

Cause of the Red Color
