When it comes to engagement rings, a white diamond is obviously the classic choice. For those who want something that stands out, a colored gemstone is the way to go, and a pink diamond is elegant, feminine, and undeniably romantic. It's certainly worth the investment.
Pink diamonds are rare and, according to the Gemological Institute of America, make up only about 1 percent of diamond production worldwide. This rarity probably explains why they‚Äôre something of a celebrity favorite: Pink diamond engagement rings have been spotted on the fingers of stars like Blake Lively, Victoria Beckham, and Mariah Carey.
