All Fancy Vivid Pinks rose by 1.3%, with Fancy Vivid Pinks of 2 and 3 carats showing a rise in the second quarter of 2019, increasing by 2.8% and 2.6%, respectively. However, Pink diamonds of 1 and 1.5 carats presented a price decrease of 0.7% and 0.2%, respectively.

The highest rise of 4.8% is in the 1.5 carat Fancy Vivid Blue.

FCRF Advisory Board member Eden Rachminov said: “The recent price declines in the white goods created an overall negative psychological effect on all diamonds. This is probably the reason we also witnessed a decline of 0.1% in the Fancy Color Index. Definitely a good time to buy now...”

 

The Fancy Color Diamond Index is published by the non-profit Fancy Color Research Foundation (FCRF), tracking pricing data for Yellow, Pink, and Blue fancy color diamonds in major global trading centers – Hong Kong, New York, Geneva and Tel Aviv.
