*Shreve, Crump & Low Graduate Gemologist commentary: While not officially graded by a gem laboratory, we believe this 2.13 carat pear shape pink diamond to be a natural pink diamond with a respective color and clarity of Pink SI1.
**Natural pink diamonds are as scarce as they are stunning. They are among the most valuable colored diamonds, and may cost up to 20 times the price of their white diamond equivalent. This is because, less than 1% of global diamond output are actually pink diamonds, making these diamonds the rarest of the rare. This means that for every one million carats of rough diamonds mined, only one carat of pink diamonds are suitable for selling. Cut and polished pink diamonds are an average of 1 carat, and a total of about 40 to 50 carats are sold at annually worldwide.
