Millions of years in the making, these crystal gifts from deep in the earth have been created against all odds. It has been estimated that it takes from one Billion to three Billion years for a natural Diamond to form in the earth!

Time to upgrade your Diamond ?

Just recently, new options have opened up for Colored Diamonds. The laboratories are creating beautiful, lower-priced alternatives to traditionally high priced Natural colored diamonds. Now available are laboratory grown fancy colored diamonds with the same intense colors. A few Diamonds "Treaters" are enhancing natural Diamonds to take on intense colors that mimic the best works of mother nature.

Can I afford a pink Diamond ?

There are many choices for Pink Diamonds that can accommodate almost any budget. The least expensive will be either a man made pink Diamond or a Color enhanced natural Diamond. An untreated natural pink Diamond will be your most expensive option.
