◈ Baguette-cut diamonds were a big hit in the '20s, and still retain their popularity as vintage rings. Buying something off-trend can get you noticed easily.
Global attention was diverted towards the phenomenon of blood diamonds the first time when Sierra Leone was undergoing a disturbing period of brutal unrest and political conflict in the latter part of the 1990s. Around this time, the extent of conflict diamonds that were mined illegally to fund these insurgencies was so huge, that these diamonds comprised almost 4% of the total global production of diamonds.
The blue and the red diamonds are considered to be the most rare and expensive ones amongst the fancy colored diamonds. The blue color that a diamond gets is due to the presence of boron in it. Blue diamonds are mined in Australia and South Africa. Red diamonds on the other hand, get their color from nitrogen. They are mined in Australia too. It is believed that at present only fifty red diamonds are there in the world!
A natural diamond coming into contact with a radioactive source at some point during its lifetime causes some diamonds to develop a green coloration. The time required may be as much as a million years or longer. Green diamonds of this nature are very unique.
