What Are Pink Diamond Rings?
As its name suggests, a pink diamond is a fancy colored diamond that is pink in color. Pink diamonds are not graded on the same D-Z diamond color scale as white diamonds. Mined pink diamonds are very rare. There are only a few mines in the world where pink diamonds can be found, like the Argyle mine in Australia.
Pink diamonds are considered one of the rarest fancy colored diamonds, second only to red diamonds. There are only a few mines in the world where pink diamonds can be found, like the Argyle mine in Australia. The rarest and most expensive pink diamond rings feature a center stone that is usually a deeper shade of pink and has a higher carat weight.
Lab-grown pink diamonds are physically identical to mined pink diamonds. The only difference between the two is point of origin. They are produced in a laboratory setting without the negative environmental or human toll of mining. Like mined pink diamonds, lab-grown pink diamonds are not all the same and come in different carat weights and clarity grades, for example.
Why Are Pink Diamond Rings Popular?
The popularity and value of pink diamonds has gone up considerably over the past couple of decades, not only because of their rarity, but because of celebrity endorsements. Famous couples wearing pink diamond engagement rings have driven up both the demand and market value. Most notably, Jennifer Lopez’s pink diamond ring from her first engagement to Ben Affleck directly influenced the price and popularity of pink diamonds world-wide.

Pink Diamond Solitaire Rings
The most popular pink diamond engagement ring setting is a Solitaire engagement ring setting. This timeless style highlights a pink diamond to perfection, allowing its unique color to shine in all directions. Halo engagement rings that contrast a pink center stone with white pavé set diamonds is also a sought-after look.
Pink Diamond Three Stone Rings
Three Stone engagement rings are also popular to match with pink diamonds. The colorless side stones create a stunning contrast with the center stone’s vivid hue. Consider matching or varying diamond shapes for a three-stone setting that’s true to your own style.
Rose Gold Pink Diamond Rings
For those who love pink, more is more! And while contrasting colors can be striking, the avant-garde, monochrome look of a rose gold engagement ring featuring a pink VRAI created diamond is modern and daring.
Pink Diamond Rings By Shape
Which diamond shape is right for spotlighting your center stone’s rosy hue? As with any engagement ring, there’s no right or wrong answer. Choose the diamond shape that best reflects your personality and personal style. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your way to choosing the perfect pink diamond ring.
Round Pink Diamond Rings
Round Brilliant cut diamonds are the most popular diamond shape in the world. This shape is considered the most timeless and perhaps the most versatile. When it comes to a Round pink diamond, however, the overall look is timeless with a twist. These rings are perfect for those wanting something classic but in their favorite color.
Emerald Cut Pink Diamond Rings
Emerald cut diamonds are one of the oldest diamond shapes in the world. They’re known for exuding a look of strength and precision with their step-cut facets. When it comes to a pink Emerald cut diamond ring, the look is a blend of old and new. The Emerald cut adds historical appeal while the pink hue gives it a modern edge.
Pear Shaped Pink Diamond Rings
Pear cut diamonds are a favorite fancy shape known for resembling tears of joy. Those who choose Pear or Marquise cut diamonds are often considered to be flirtatious, whimsical, and romantic. This elongated cut is therefore perfect for pairing with pink. A Pear shaped pink diamond ring is undeniably playful and feminine.
Oval Cut Pink Diamond Rings
Oval cut diamonds are a modern favorite. For those who love the classic look of a Round Brilliant, but want to maximize carat weight with an elongated form, the Oval is a must. This is perhaps why Ovals are second in popularity only to the Round Brilliant. Pink Oval cut diamond rings therefore are thoroughly modern and a celebration of individuality.
Radiant Cut Pink Diamond Rings
It’s not called the Radiant for nothing. Radiant cut diamonds feature 70 modified brilliant cut facets, giving it a “crushed ice” look when reflecting back the light. This mixed with its elongated form (similar in shape to Emerald cut diamonds), the Radiant is one of the ultimate expressions of big and bold brilliance. Radiant cut pink diamond rings are therefore ideal for those who aren’t afraid of garnering lots of attention.
Pink Diamond Promise Rings
A pink diamond promise ring is ideal for those who either love pink diamonds or who are wanting to save white diamonds for their engagement ring. Promise rings are often slightly different in style from traditional engagement rings or wedding bands. Something light and playful is often considered best for a ring that is often (although not exclusively) exchanged between young people. A pink diamond promise ring is perfect for those wanting to achieve this look.
Pink Diamond Wedding Ring Sets
The most straightforward way of creating your pink diamond wedding ring set is by matching your pink diamond engagement ring to your wedding ring either by setting or metal color. The latter is a simple yet effective way of creating the perfect matching pair. The former is achieved by selecting an engagement ring ring specifically designed to pair up with a wedding ring. The Curator engagement ring and Curator band, the Signature V engagement ring and Signature V band, or the Single Shared Prong engagement ring and Single Shared Prong band are just a few examples of wedding ring sets made to match!
