White is a classic. Color is fashion. Gray is the trend. There are also gray diamonds, but it is difficult that you can meet one: they are rare, very rare.

Features. Gray diamonds are extracted in India, Russia, South Africa and Australia. The gray color comes from a high concentration of hydrogen or boron. But not only: gray diamonds often have different shades, due to a slight influence by other mineral elements.

The cost. The price of diamonds is determined by the color, but also by the clarity and of course the size. In general, gray diamonds cost a little less than bright-colored ones, such as yellow or pink. And they cost less, on average, than colorless ones. Federico Graglia
