The Exquisite Allure of Natural Blue Diamonds: An Essential Guide for Consumers

Natural blue diamonds stand as the pinnacle of elegance and rarity in the world of gemstones. Their stunning hues and exceptional scarcity make them highly sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs. This comprehensive guide will provide you with everything you need to know about natural blue diamonds, including their formation, grading, market value, and purchasing tips. If you are captivated by the thought of owning one of these extraordinary gems, read on to discover why you should contact us at Icestore for availability and pricing.

1. Formation and Rarity of Blue Diamonds

Natural blue diamonds are a true marvel of nature. Formed over billions of years deep within the Earth’s mantle, their unique color results from the presence of boron during their crystallization. This rare element causes the diamond to absorb red, yellow, and green light, reflecting a captivating blue hue.

The rarity of blue diamonds cannot be overstated. They are among the rarest of all colored diamonds, with significant sources being extremely limited. The most famous source is the Cullinan Mine in South Africa, which has produced some of the world's most renowned blue diamonds, including the legendary Hope Diamond.

2. Grading and Quality of Blue Diamonds

The quality of blue diamonds, like all diamonds, is evaluated based on the Four Cs: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat weight. However, color is the most crucial factor in determining the value of colored diamonds.

  • Color: The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) grades colored diamonds based on hue, tone, and saturation. Blue diamonds can range from Faint Blue to Fancy Vivid Blue, with the latter being the most prized. The intensity and purity of the blue color significantly influence the diamond's value.

  • Clarity: Clarity refers to the presence of internal or external imperfections. While clarity is essential, it is secondary to color in colored diamonds. Most blue diamonds have inclusions that are not visible to the naked eye, which do not detract from their beauty or value.

  • Cut: The cut of a diamond affects its brilliance and overall appearance. Blue diamonds are typically cut to maximize their color intensity and sparkle. Common cuts include round, cushion, and pear shapes.

  • Carat Weight: Carat weight measures the size of the diamond. Due to their rarity, larger blue diamonds are exponentially more valuable.

3. The Rarity and Infrequency of Blue Diamonds

Blue diamonds are incredibly rare and infrequently found. Their scarcity is a significant factor in their high market value. Unlike other diamonds that may be mined in larger quantities, blue diamonds are discovered sporadically, making each one a unique and valuable find.


Due to their rarity, blue diamonds are often kept from the general public to maintain their value. They are typically reserved for high-end auctions or private sales, where they can fetch astronomical prices. This exclusivity ensures that the market remains controlled and the diamonds retain their status as some of the most valuable gemstones in the world.

4. Market Value and Investment Potential

The market value of natural blue diamonds is driven by their rarity and the intensity of their color. Vivid blue diamonds command the highest prices, often fetching significant premiums at auctions. For example, the 12.03-carat Blue Moon Diamond sold for a record-breaking $48.4 million in 2015, highlighting the substantial investment potential of these gems.

As an investment, natural blue diamonds have shown consistent appreciation in value over the years. They are not only a stunning addition to any jewelry collection but also a tangible asset that can provide financial returns.

  • Certification: Always buy diamonds that come with a certification from a reputable gemological laboratory like the GIA. This certification verifies the authenticity and quality of the diamond.

  • Understand the Hue: Pay attention to the hue of the diamond. Pure blue diamonds are rare, and stones with secondary hues can vary significantly in value.

  • Consider the Setting: The setting of the diamond can enhance its color and overall appearance. Work collaberatively with us to choose a setting that complements the diamond’s hue and cut.
