I have been reviewing the famous colored diamond collection named the Aurora Collection collected by Alan Bronstein and captured in the classic reference guide, "Forever Brilliant".  The common names for the rainbow of colors available in colored diamonds is primarily what I was researching at the moment.  And the diamond offered here is the ever elusive, "Pumpkin".  Now purists would say that a true pumpkin colored diamond would not have any secondary hue such as yellow present, but I would label this diamond a Yellowish ORANGE to begin with!  The transmission of orange makes this "orange" diamond as Orange as an orange diamond can be.  Now, this diamond is just out of the eye-clean range of clarity with an Included 1 designation, but as I try to inform collectors of colored diamonds:  "Don't get fooled into thinking that the standards of clarity that pertain to brilliant white diamonds are to be equally applied to fancy colored diamonds".  It is all about color, and this diamond's coloration is a magnificent pumpkin orange that is very, very, very rare.  And did I mention the price is a bargain.

All I can say about this diamond is, WOW!  Remember that Purple, the color of royalty throughout the ages, is rarer than both Blue and Pink.  This Pink Purple diamond is even more rare as an Oval cut, because there just aren't that many colored diamonds that are chiseled into this shape due to the dispersion of color in the rough diamond.  When we have a predominantly PURPLE diamond available for sale, they don't last very long, so sell some of those overpriced stocks and liquidate some of that investment real estate, and give me a call!  This diamond will do very well over the years because it is truly one of a kind.

RED IS THE RAREST OF ALL COLORED DIAMOND HUES.  And Purple is right below it on the rarity scale.  Then Orange, then Green, then Blue, then Pink.  See what rarefied company this Creme de la Creme color has and the rarest of the rare aren't as rare as Red.  This gem looks more like a Burma Ruby to me, but the astute collector that acquires this beauty will be pleased not only with its stunning eye appeal in the years ahead, but how it holds and magnifies its value.  If you were to buy just one Fancy Colored Diamond in your lifetime, this would be it.  Heck, I just may buy it myself.

It think the word "WOW" is also spelled O-R-A-N-G-E.  We are so pleased with our international cutters and brokers who have been providing us with superb orangey and orange diamonds since the beginning of the year.  Most jewelers, brokers, and collectors do not realize how very, very rare an orange diamond is.  It really boils down to the basic color wheel:  If red is the rarest color and yellow is somewhat rare, the orange combination is going to be very close to the top of the rarity scale.  Unless you placed this diamond on a bright yellow background, you would observe first-hand that the overpowering hue in this diamond is Orange.  Beautifully cut gem in the age-old classic Emerald cut, with large facets that just can't wash out the Vivid saturation of this colored diamond.  Once again, the cutter knew he had a very eye-clean rough to dare cut the gem utilizing the large mirror-like facets of the Emerald cut.  If there were visible inclusions, clouds, feathers, spots, they would show up glaringly and spoil the presentation of the finished gem.  But, clean as a whistle, this evening sunburst is a solid VS2 clarity and hard to match.  Large, beautiful rare gem, reasonably priced.

This diamond should be sold with sunglasses.  VIVID Orange diamonds are not easy to find, and if we were not pushing our suppliers in India to find them for us, we would not have them to offer our valued clients.  The color speaks for itself in this Vivid Yellow ORANGE diamond where the secondary yellowish hues are present but the Orange is so vivid in presentation that the yellows are basically an afterthought.  AND the Orange hues are vividly present.  Marquise diamonds lend themselves to a diverse range of jewelry pieces so feel free to contact us to discuss a WCM Jewelry piece centered around this magnificent gem.  May & June must be Orange Diamond Month, but if it doesn't say that on your calendar, make it so.  Very clean colored diamond.

While the Argyle Mine in Australia has stated that they will not be totally closing the very mine that produces the vast majority of pink diamond rough in the world, everyone in the colored diamond industry knows that the pink rough production numbers going forward are destined to decline over the next several years to minimal levels.  Pink diamonds over the last 4 years are up around 130%, and most experts agree that we are only in the early stages of a generational bull market in fancy colored diamonds, especially pinks, that will last well into the next decade.  When the U.S. Federal Reserve is bent on flooding the global monetary system with Dollars to keep the Ponzi Scheme going on fiat currency and to monetarize massive U.S. debt with cheapened Dollars, there will be more than enough liquidity available globally to keep colored diamond prices high and higher.  It is impossible to forecast what the global financial and economic landscape will look like in 10 years, but one fact I do know:  Fancy Pink diamonds will be more rare than they are today due to non-existent supply and continued demand as a Store of Wealth.  Oh, and did I mention this was a Pure Pink diamond without any secondary color modifier ........ very, very rare.

There is nothing quite like a VIVID PINK diamond ...... that is not only getting rarer and rarer by the day due to a perpetual exhaustion of the known supply from the Australian Argyle Mine, but is truly one of the most striking gemstones one can observe.  This well-cut specimen is wonderfully colored with a very rich pink body with the tasteful influence of the purplish tinge evenly painted throughout the gem.  An "eye-clean" colored diamond in the ever-popular Radiant cut that will sell for many thousands of dollars over this offering price in the months ahead.  Not only do we have trouble finding and keeping pink diamonds in inventory, but we need to hire a dedicated accountant just to keep up with the periodic price increases.  He or she who waits until 2007 and beyond will end of paying 10's of percentages more for their fancy colored PINK diamond, especially one of VIVID color saturation.

This rich raspberry colored diamond has so much going for it, I hardly know where to begin.  1.) Very rare pink diamond.  2.) Vivid color saturation AND a pink.  3.) Rare Oval cut.  4.) Very clean colored diamond with VVS2 Clarity. 5.) Purplish secondary hue, a rare color in itself. 

I know I sound like a broken record when I talk about how difficult it is to find superb Pink Colored Diamonds, but I will say it one more time.  Of all the colored diamonds that a collector or investor could put in a portfolio today, my first recommendation, if you can find an example as excellent as this diamond, is to buy a GIA certified Pink Diamond.  There is no question in the trade that this is an increasing rare colored diamond.

This is a truly outstanding Yellow diamond slightly seasoned with faint Orangey hues.  While clarity has seldom been a major issue in Colored Diamonds, when a near-Flawless specimen at VVS1 comes onto the market, the bid instantly rises in today's pricing schema of new collectors and investors seeking diamond perfection.  Take some time to click on the GIA logo above to study the outstanding characteristics of this very well made diamond.  While compromises in cut and clarity are expected in colored diamonds since color in the rough is seldom uniform, this saffron colored gem sports the more technically stringent specifications for White Brilliant diamonds.  We expect some of the greatest price increases in colored diamonds, especially Yellows, to occur in the 2 to 5 carat range this year and beyond, as collectors and investors continue to take available supply of the larger gems off the marketplace for many, many years to come.  A stunningly large Yellow diamond at a not-so-stunning price.

As I have recently reaffirmed, I am rather partial to Brown diamonds, the Rodney Dangerfield of fancy colored diamonds that just can't get any respect.  Since the market place has not priced Brown diamonds according to their true rarity, especially with large browns being irradiated into large white diamonds (with full disclosure to the buyer, of course), I am more than happy to obtain all of the large Browns I can at these temporarily cheap prices.  The combination of Pink in this diamond on an equal footing with the Brown makes this a very appealing colored diamond by any measure.  Emerald cuts allow the cutter to take a darkly saturated rough as in this diamond, and create a more brilliant, flashy gem than otherwise would be the case with virtually any other cut. This exceedingly clean Pink-Brown diamond would make a stunning pendant for a necklace that would certainly set the wearer apart from the crowd.

As a colored diamond broker, I am spellbound when I get the asking prices from the cutters these days for a large Vivid Yellow diamond.  AND THAT IS IF YOU CAN FIND ONE!  Colored diamonds are no longer a closely held secret investment area for a select clique of in-the-know cosmopolitans.  Since the yellow category is one of the most affordable, it is naturally the area of concentration for most beginning collections or investments.  But as you increase the diamond weight from 2 carats and reach the VIVID color saturation level, due to the surge in capable buyers, the pricing structure begins to rise exponentially, certainly not linearly.  But enough about price ..... just look at this beauty that would most likely sell for over to $200,000 at Tiffany's or most jewelers for that matter.  The cutter that was lucky enough to obtain this yellow diamond in the rough knew that it was ALMOST FLAWLESS with a Clarity Grade of Very Very Slightly Included, Level 2 AND he then knew that he could create a stunning gem by utilizing the large, highly reflective facets of the EMERALD CUT to create an even rarer fancy colored diamond.  The richness of the yellow would not be washed out since he had the rich Vivid coloration level also. Furthermore, large facets tend to reveal internal inclusions more readily in a colored diamond, but there were virtually none to be revealed in the first place in this outstanding, well-made Yellow diamond.  Buy a Vivid Yellow Diamond while you can.  One of my favorite cuts.  Timeless.

There is no question that the supply of Fancy Pink colored diamonds is becoming tighter and tighter as we approach the new year, not to mention the monthly escalations in price.  This well-cut diamond exhibits a very rich purplish coloration, but even more significant are the flashes of pure red reflecting from within the gem.  This colored diamond could be described as a raspberry coloration, and buyers of pink diamonds today are very likely to enjoy stellar appreciation in the years ahead as past buyers have.

I can't impress on prospective and current colored diamond investors enough how truly rare green diamonds are.  Just below Red, Purple, and Orange on the super rarity scale is pure Green, rarer than Blue and Pink.  Of course, secondary and tertiary colors of Yellow and Gray reduce the total rarity of this diamond, but as this image shows, Green is the overpowering coloration of this rectangular cushion cut diamond.  Dealing in the colored diamond marketplace every day, we realize that the rarest colors are being purchased the minute they come off the cutter's wheel still warm from polishing, sometimes before they receive a GIA certificate.  We are making it a strategy to attempt to find the rarest of the fancy colored diamonds in 2006, still reasonably priced, to present to clients.  Buy rarity while you still can; you will not be disappointed in the long run.  Very solid Green diamond.

The prices of Pink diamonds in 2006 have once again had another very strong advance due to their increasing scarcity.  The pink diamond sighting from the Argyle Mine in 2007 will likely be less than 10 pink diamonds in total, so collectors and investors have been very active in seeking out these ever and ever scarcer beauties over the last 4 years.  Since 2002, it can be stated with some certainty that as a class of colored diamonds, Pink diamonds have doubled in price.  The top, you say?  Hardly.  As more and more funds are funneled into the fancy colored diamond arena due to an increasing lack of alternatives in the very troubling years ahead, the fact that production of pink diamonds has basically ground to a halt will cause Pink diamond prices to double several times over.  I told investors and collectors about the potential for price appreciation in pink diamonds almost 4 years ago, and I have been proven right in spades.  Diminutive, but affordable, deeply saturated Purplish Pink diamond at a stellar price for a Vivid.

Here is another fantastic Orange diamond that our suppliers in India have made available to us. The cut is an oval that has had Step Cuts made into the surfaces of the diamond to enhance brilliance to an otherwise Deeply saturated colored diamond.  "Deep" level colors can tend to be a little heavy in toning with an improper cut and certainly the marketplace prices these "heavy" or dull colored diamonds accordingly.  However, there is quite a bit of artistry with this SCoval cut diamond that was displayed at the cutter's wheel. The skillful cutter created a very unique, nicely brilliant diamond while still retaining a rich Orange as the predominant color.  With an almost 3.5 carat weight/size, this Orange diamond with facet flashes of equally rich yellow hues is in a category by itself when it come to Yellow-Orange diamonds.  Eye-clean at SI1 clarity.  Did I say that Deep colored diamonds were generally undervalued in the market as a class?

We are rapidly running out of pink diamonds this year, and by Fall, it is quite likely that I will have nary a pink diamond to sell.  This Intense PURE PINK diamond reminds me of a Strawberry hard candy, but the sweetest thing about it is its Intense, rich color.  The cut is somewhat of a mix between a cushion and oval shape with a wonderful result of not only rich color, but fiery brilliance for those who just can't give up the sparkle of brilliant white diamonds.  Cutters always risk lessening the total color presentation of a colored diamond based upon their selection of cutting shape, but this original cut does justice to the finely colored rough that came out of the ground after millions of years.  For an over-half-carat weight in an Intense Pink and VVS2 Clarity to boot, I think this diamond is under-priced.  Buy it before I change my mind.

Welch's Grape Juice comes to mind from the very unusual (and rare) coloring of this fancy diamond.  The color Purple is of course the equal combination of Red and Blue, two primary colors that are at the top of the colored diamond rarity scale.  But, as we have discussed on these pages several times before, PURPLE is more rare than Blue, and competes with pure Green and pure Orange just below the pinnacle of Red.  Now, this is not an eye-clean gem with a borderline SI3 to I1 clarity designation, but who cares because the color is one of a kind!  Remember that this magnification is easily 50x the actual gem's size, so you will have to squint to see the feather inclusions when you hold this diamond in your hand.  Remember what I have told you about diamonds graded at the DEEP level of color saturation or intensity:  the market under-prices them left and right because they tend to be less brilliant in sparkle than vivid level diamonds and below.  But the fact remains that they are must rarer than Vivid, Intense, or Fancy colored diamonds.  Eventually, the price will reflect RARITY REALITY.
