|The allure of the Pink Martian Just when we thought the worlds red-hot love affair with blush-colored diamonds was over, along comes the Pink Martian. The 12-carat pink diamond (named for the 1976 Viking 1 mission to Mars) recently sold in Hong Kong for $17.4 million. Only months before, the 9-carat Clark Pink wowed the world when it sold for $15.7 million. What does our Palos Pink DiamondAura� Collection have in common with the Martian rock? More than you might think. Thanks to science, the lab-created sparkle of DiamondAura surpasses the worlds finest diamonds. The fire of our Palos Pink DiamondAura Ring actually burns brighter than the worlds highest-graded diamonds! Mars may be hot, but the process for creating DiamondAura is even hotter. Experts utilize intense pressure and blistering heat (nearly 5000˚ F) to create a masterpiece of gemological art. Each of the five rosy-pink rounds channel-set inside the .925 sterling silver platinum-finished band flicker with the kind of light usually reserved for world-record stones.
