To put it into context.... natural red diamonds are so rare that the likelihood is most jewellers have never even seen one. This is the reason why this exceptional pear-shaped, 0.70 carat diamond is on sale for a whopping £1 million. The fancy diamond is a purplish red colour and has a stunning pear-shape brilliant cut which is a modified version of the ever popular round brilliant cut diamond. Although the stone is slightly included with internal marks, its price is not affected due to its rare, natural colour. At the moment the diamond is loose, ready to be set into a stunning piece of jewellery.
How Rare are Red Diamonds?
Red diamonds are so rare so rare that there is hardly any gemological information about them. If you are lucky enough to ever actually see a red diamond you will instantly see just how different they are to rubies and other red gem stones. Fancy red diamonds are more expensive then rare near-colourless, mainly because they are so hard to find. Like this 0.70 carat diamonds, red diamonds are typically small and only a handful has been graded Fancy Red – in fact the largest red stone weighs just 5.11 carats.

The largest and most famous red diamond is known as the Red Shield, and weighs 5.11 carats, which is small compared to the world’s largest diamond which is over 600 carats. Another famous red diamond is The Rob Red Diamond which weighs 0.59 carats and is rated as the most intense red diamond that has so far been discovered.
