Violet Diamonds

 

Pure violet or purple diamonds are rarely recovered. The rarity of violet stones has resulted in a high price range for these gems. As in the case with orange diamonds, the GIA rarely grades diamonds as pure violet or purple.

 

What makes a diamond violet or purple?           

  

Violet diamonds have only recently been recognised as a separate colour set and some controversy remains over whether a violet can be marked as a separate category, or whether it is in fact a member of the purple diamond family. From a gemmological perspective, indicators point to the existence of two colour sets based on the colour's source. The presence of the colour violet in a diamond is due to the presence of hydrogen, whereas deformations in the diamond's atomic matrix result in a purple coloration.

 

The intensity levels that fancy violet diamonds appear in are fancy, fancy dark and fancy deep and very few in the intense classification.
