What color diamond is the most expensive?

Diamonds are mined around the world from Africa to Russia. Diamonds are a naturally occurring carbon lattice that is arranged in such a way that differentiates it from our ordinary graphite.  They naturally have various colors, from Deep yellow to lovely pink. The color is dependent on the trace element interacting with the carbon lattice such as nitrogen, sulfur and boron which can produce yellow, green, and blue hues. If you want to purchase a colored diamond for your loved one, you will have to think of it as an investment for a lifetime.

Colored diamonds will absorb white light which will prevent as much reflection producing less sparkle. Who doesn’t want a diamond that catches other people’s eye.
