Gemstones that blush
- Diamonds: Though not common, natural pink diamonds do occur. More often, diamonds are enhanced to achieve light to saturated pink hues
- Sapphires: Commonly known for its classic blue, sapphires span a spectrum of colors, including pink. In fact, a red sapphire is actually a ruby – which can lead to alternate labeling. You may see a pink gem from this corundum family labeled as a pink ruby or a pink sapphire.

- Tourmaline: This gem is a great option for those seeking a wide range of pinks to choose from. Colors range from very light pink to almost red. The deeper red stones may be called rubellite.
