Purple diamonds are a natural rarity and are found primarily in mines in Brazil, Australia and Siberia. The magnificent purple color results from a phenomenon called post-growth plastic deformation. Because of their extreme rarity, Purple Diamonds are very valuable. One notable purple diamond is the Royal Purple Heart Diamond measuring 7.34 carats and expertly faceted into a stunning heart cut, it’s the largest Fancy Vivid Purple diamond in the world. Another famous purple diamond is the $4 million 8 karat Purple Diamond ring that Kobe Bryant gave his wife Vanessa shortly after his sexual assault charges. The color of Purple Diamonds combines cool blues, warm reds and blush overtones, imbuing these treasures with a romantic quality.
