I'm sorry but that diamond looks scary to me. I2 clarity and emerald shape? What sort of cut is going on there? No way.

Pink diamonds are very pricey! Believe me, no one is giving them away via ebay.

Run Forrest RUN. WAY too cheap for a natural pink and the diamond doesn''t look good anyway - pass.

No question the diamond in the link is butt ugly- if it was a dog you''d want to shave it''s behind, and walk it backwards....

BUT- remember, ANY 1.35ct diamond for $1000 per carat is going to have issues- and a pink one exponentially more so.
I would not buy the thing, but also would not expect to find anything decent on that price range......

There's an excellent explanation for why it's so cheap: It's dyed.

If you look closely, you can see the pink dye concentrations in the cracks.

This is a run of the mill dog that someone tried to tart up. What you've got here is a diamond that someone fracture-filled with pink glass. I've seen such things before, though they're not common. Bottom line: Run
