The “Perfect” Diamond

13 October 2015 / Blog

As the great philosopher Confucius once said: better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.  As it turns out, Confucius was probably even more right than he realized: many “fancy” (colored) diamonds are actually valued much higher than their clear, uncolored counterparts–and this coloration is the direct result of a chemical “flaw.” 

 Though it may not be exactly what Confucius had in mind, flawed diamonds are oftentimes extremely valuable–and many of the world’s most famous diamonds (such as the Blue Hope Diamond, for example) are fancy diamonds themselves.  One last amazing statistic about fancy diamonds: there are more Pablo Picasso paintings in the world today than there are gem-quality fancy diamonds!
