Are you looking for a unique jewelry item to add to your collection? Are you looking to wow people with rare and beautiful gems? Blue diamond earrings just might be the ideal match for you.

Here we will discuss everything you need to know about these beautiful and rare blue diamonds why you might just want to invest in a pair for yourself or as the perfect gift for your wife or a loved one.

What Are Blue Diamonds?

Blue diamonds can be both naturally formed or lab-grown diamonds. They come from traces of boron in the carbon structure of the diamond.

These gems flash brightest in white lighting and are known for their diverse hue range as well. Blue diamonds can have grey, purple, and even green secondary hues.

What Is the Average Price for Blue Diamond Earrings?

Blue diamond earrings can vary in price depending on the shape and the depth of the diamonds’ color. It is best to shop with a business you can trust, to make sure you receive something you love, and so that you get lots of recommendations for options. A company that wants to support your experience and help you learn more as you shop is a business that will make finding the perfect product easy.

Mined blue diamonds can go for upwards of $1,700 for 1/4 of a carat and can grow to be enormously expensive due to their rarity. While mined blue diamonds can fluctuate in pricing massively depending on the times, lab-grown diamonds tend to stay within a more reasonable price range.

Lab-grown blue diamonds are identical to traditional mined. By cutting out expensive mining practices with lab-growing blue diamonds, companies can offer each blue diamond at a better price. For example, we at Clean Origin have currently listed a Fancy Deep Blue 0.62CT VS2 diamond for $505.

Rather than break the bank on virtually the same diamond, many go for lab-grown fancy colored diamonds so they can choose the perfect diamond at the ideal price.

Apollo and Artemis: The Famous Pink Diamond and Blue Diamond Earrings

Due to their rarity, there are not many pink or blue diamonds set in earrings. The most famous pair, auctioned off in 2017 for a total of 128.7 million dollars, is the Artemis and Apollo diamond earrings.

Their name reflects the duality of the twin stones, perfectly cut and sized to match, but one a stunning light blue and the other a petal pink. What’s not to love about large, flawless, pastel diamonds? The gorgeous earrings were auctioned at the Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva. Each diamond is an immense rarity, but together they are a treasure.

The Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division, David Bennett, referred to them as “by far the most important pair of earrings ever offered at auction.” Anything that can even reference these stunning jewels has gone up in value, as these earrings brought fancy colored stones even further to the forefront of fashion today.

These two stones are some of the most chemically pure diamonds available and are incredibly rare due to their intensity of color, size, and flawless clarity. Each earring was sold separately, adding to the challenge of bidding on both successfully. The pink earring sold for more than the blue earring, reflecting the increased rarity and value of pink diamonds everywhere. Overall, both pieces were considered extremely valuable.
