1. Red Diamond Gallery
Red is one of the rarest and most desirable colors. Out of all colored diamonds red diamonds are the rarest of them all. The world's largest red diamond is known as the Red shield, and weighs only 5.11 carats, compared with over 600 carats for the largest diamond of any kind. Another famous red diamond was "Hancock Red" which has a weight of just 0.95 carats was sold for a whooping price of $880,000 at Christie's New York in April, 1987. Natural and enhanced red diamonds can be separated very easily because of lack of graining, blackish overtones and different absorption patterns of natural red diamonds. Even enhanced red diamonds are considered rare because the color is hard to achieve.
