Fancy LIGHT BLUE 0.85 carat Oval Cut VS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

Normally, I do not recommend Fancy Light colored diamonds because the color levels in most of these gems are usually so faint that I don't think the gems stand out well enough to warrant their acquisition.  THAT IS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS WELL-SATURATED LIGHT BLUE DIAMOND!  This color reminds me of scenes from Alaska of "Glacial Ice", where the absorption of all light waves of white light are consumed with Ice Blue being the only color to escape at the periphery.  Picture the edge of a 100 Million year-old glacier in a salty seaward bay and this Light Blue diamond must have formed from within its icy grip.  A little dramatic, I know, but I seldom get excited about Light color levels in diamonds.  Borderline Fancy color saturation, reminds me of a Blue quartz crystal that I bought at Mammoth Cave in Kentucky back in the 1950's.  An a traditional Oval Brilliant cut with very clean VS1 clarity to boot.

SOLD


This is another RED diamond with a laser inscription on the girdle showing that the diamond came from the Argyle Mine in Western Australia.  Usually quite difficult to obtain origin or provenance on a fancy colored diamond, but here you are, Argyle control number 292268 in minute script for the future auctioneer at Christie's or Sotheby's.  Now you know by now that I do not downgrade a diamond for having an ever-so-slight brownish tinge to it, partly because a "touch of brown earth" deepens the overall perception of color saturation in a diamond.  But this Gumdrop is of such a fine Raspberry color that I would even consider it as a "starter diamond" for a budding colored diamond collection. Most Red diamonds have a secondary modifying color, most often Purplish.  Many Deep Pink or Deep Purplish Pink diamonds give the perception of red, but aren't quite there on the color scale.

DEEP Brownish Greenish Yellow 2.65 carats Heart Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


Years ago I viewed Heart Cut diamonds with some disdain, since I must have felt it was a frivolous facet pattern, suggestive of excessively overt sentimentality.  How's that for a mouthful?!  A waste of precious carbonic crystal, even.  However, some of the most rare and beautiful Fancy Colored Diamonds that I have seen are shaped in the design of Life and Love, the Heart, so I have had to mend my ways.  Now that I know that this very unique cutting pattern addresses the unevenly distributed color in many a rough colored diamond, I understand and appreciate its usage.  This diamond presents a wondrous and rich Olive coloration that is quite unique in Nature.  Superb blending of the three colors of Brown, Green, and Yellow.  It is seldom that one can obtain over 2 and one-half carats of colored diamond AND a virtual wealth of deep, rich color FOR UNDER TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.  Exquisite gem for a pedestrian price.

DARK Gray BLUE 0.88 carat Heart Cut I1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


This diamond's overall color is very close to that of the famous Hope Diamond on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.  True colored diamond collectors will appreciate the depth of color in this very rare gem despite the inclusion visible in the upper left lobe of the heart cut.  It is truly all about color in the final analysis of these totally unique crystalline creations.  Unfortunately for many investors new to the field of fancy colored diamonds, they attempt to apply standards that determine value primarily in the colorless, "white" diamond trade, such as clarity and cut.  These areas are almost always at a distinctly different level in colored diamonds, and to not recognize this fact is to pass on superbly colored natural diamonds that possess all of the qualities expected by knowledgeable buyers and collectors.  This richness of "Blue Sapphire" color seldom appears in the marketplace.  If you are a true collector and/or educated investor, this Gray-Blue diamond is a valued addition to your budding collection of the world's most rare and most valuable colored gems.

Fancy INTENSE Purplish PINK 0.76 carat Cushion Cut VS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


The evidence becomes more concrete day after day that the availability of Fancy Pink diamonds, much less greater than 1/2 carat Intense Pink diamonds, becomes more constrained.  As supply diminishes, and colored diamond buyers are a tenacious lot with generally long-term horizons, the price of the gem inevitably climbs higher and higher.  Purple is often the secondary modifier within natural Pink diamonds, and the color combination of Pink and Purple has both warm and cool effects simultaneously.  Some potential colored diamond buyers worry about a particular gem not being one carat or greater in weight, but carat weight is not nearly as important as the rarity and saturation of the overall color of the diamond.  Pink diamonds in the 1/2 to 99 point range are more affordable than 1 carat plus gems, and the color of this Intense Purplish Pink diamond is outstanding regardless of carat size.  Excellent and very rare Intense Pink diamond at an excellent price.

SOLD


My Kingdom for a magnificent and large Cognac diamond!  This skillfully cut Emerald-shaped Deep Brown ORANGE diamond is much more lively and brilliant were you to hold it in a beam of sunlight and rotate it back and forth.  While the Deep color designation suggests darkness of tone, the large, mirror-like facets of this classic cut, favored by the royalty in days of yore, will literally cause the diamond to catch fire in direct light.  This is not a dull Brown diamond, but an extremely richly-colored Orange diamond where Mother Nature added both Brown and Black to the color palette in restrained moderation.  Classic Color, Classic Cut, both at a very modest price for a rare colored diamond.

Fancy VIVID Yellow 1.14 carat Emerald Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


Exquisite Canary Yellow diamond faceted with what I consider one of the most demanding colored diamond cuts, the all-revealing Emerald cut.  This is also my favorite diamond cut due to the elegant symmetry provided by the rather large, geometrically-perfect rectangular "mirror" facets within the crown and pavilion areas.  To obtain an evenly colored diamond without distracting inclusions utilizing the Emerald cut is a feat of Mankind in itself.  No slouch herself, Mother Nature originally provided a rough Yellow diamond of Vivid saturation, and the cutter worked his magic to maintain and enhance the level of color saturation to produce a "Saffron" colored diamond of one-carat plus proportions.  Yellow diamonds have steadily appreciated in value over the last 7 years, and yet, demand for Vivid Yellows remains as strong as ever since they are still quite affordable in today's Easy Money environment.  Magnificent piece of "ice".

Intense Greenish Yellow 1.00 carat Radiant Cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


I usually refer to this color combination of Green and Yellow as DayGlo, but there is not an over abundance of Greenish hues in this diamond.  With more natural sunlight illuminating the gem, one is more likely to see the Greenish highlights that are well-mixed within the natural gem.  Although I totally appreciate a pure Yellow Canary or Daffodil diamond, these composite colors of Greenish Yellow or Orangey Yellow or even Brownish Yellow offer some flare to a color  that all by its lonesome, can be somewhat pedestrian.  Like in the caution light at the intersection.  But once again, if you were to run the numbers on how many Greenish Yellows or Green-Yellows that Mother Nature has produced over the last several 100 Million years, you would be shocked at the real scarcity.  Shocked especially in light of the less than $10,000 per carat being asked here for a very-clean 1.00 carat work of art.

Fancy Intense GREEN Yellow 0.63 carat Round Brilliant Cut VS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


These "Day-Glo" Yellow diamonds are increasingly popular because the color combination with Green creates such an unusual and striking color.  And an endless stream of compliments from all observers will follow this carbonic wonder where ever you go.  This Green-Yellow coloration literally jumps out at you, and many collectors may begin to even consider pure Yellow diamonds as almost bland after owning a Day-Glo Yellow.  When we bring them into inventory, they do not stay around long.  Once you have seen this unique creation of Nature's artistry, you will wonder out loud why you never owned one previously.  Round brilliant cuts in fancy colored diamonds are quite rare in themselves.  Does not glow in the dark, however, but you would think it did!

Fancy DEEP Grayish Yellowish GREEN 3.02 carat Radiant Cut SI1 Colored Diamond
SOLD

 
The mere fact that Green is the predominant color in this diamond speaks volumes as to the absolute rarity of the gem.  The modifying colors of Gray and Yellow give this exceptionally large-sized 3.02 carat diamond an "Olive" color that is highly prized amongst those in the know.  These experienced collectors and investors realize that this is truly a very rare diamond, especially since it is not a Chameleon diamond with this combination of colors.  The radiant cut remains the most popular diamond facet pattern on the market, and this is a well-made diamond indeed with plenty of fire and scintillation as one's viewing angle rotates around the table plane of the gem.  At under $10,000 per carat, what else must I say, but:  "Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!"

Fancy Intense Purplish Pink 0.80 carat Round Cut VS2 Colored Diamond
SOLD

 
I am going to let you in on a secret that very few investors and diamond brokers know at this point in time:  The Argyle Mine in Western Australia will be closed by the Fall of 2009, meaning that the primary source for high-quality Pink diamonds will no longer be providing the world with these extremely rare, soon to get even more rare, colored diamonds.  So if you have been holding off on a Pink diamond purchase, trying to pick a soft point in this specialized segment of colored diamonds, it is just not going to happen.  In fact, just the opposite is already happening:  Prices for such superb, exceptionally well-made, rare cut, almost Raspberry colored diamonds such as this very large 80 point wonder, are going to move steadily higher in the immediate months ahead.  There is no scarcity of high-end buyers in a world flooded with depreciating U.S. Dollars thanks to the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury.  Global investors, especially those in Hong Kong and China and Southeast Asia, are fleeing Dollar deposits in preference for time-tested tangible assets such as fancy colored diamonds.  I have been urging my clients to purchase several rare Pink diamonds for their budding collections for over 5 years now, and my advice could not have been more spot on.  An early closure of the Argyle Mine coupled with massive shifts in investment allocations around the world is a recipe for the buyer of this and other excellent examples of Pink diamonds to stay well ahead of the inflationary times just around the corner.  Almost has a much saturation as a Vivid Pink diamond.

Fancy Brownish Greenish YELLOW 4.09 carat Radiant Cut VS1 GIA Colored Diamond
SOLD

 
WOW!  For anyone looking for a very large YELLOW diamond, this 4.09 carat beauty has everything.  Low price at $6,300 per carat, but lots of color thanks to Mother Nature introducing splashes of Brownish and Greenish hues ever so gingerly throughout the crystalline structure of the gem.  These modifying colors actually push the color saturation from just Fancy to Intense as a matter of visual perception.  There is a minor brown spot on the crown of the diamond, but GIA graded this gem correctly as a very clean VS1 since this inclusion is not at all distracting given the overall fine presentation of this Yellow diamond.  Mother Nature can take a bow with this fine colored diamond.  Personally, I prefer Yellow diamonds with secondary and tertiary color modifiers, because these palette additions offer depth, interest, and variety to this often mono-tonal class of colored diamonds.  Natural sunlight is going to set this gem afire with the 3-color mix embedded in its crystalline matrix, so he or she who purchases this diamond is in for a real visual treat.

Fancy INTENSE ORANGE 0.38 carat Radiant cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD
 

 
Several years ago, few collectors and even fewer investors realized how truly rare a PURE ORANGE Diamond was in Nature.  Gradually, it has become clear that an Orange diamond without secondary modifying colors such as Yellow, Yellowish, or Brownish is very, very difficult to obtain.  While this well-made example depicts facet flashes of yellowish hues, Orange diamonds are known to fluoresce yellow when exposed to shortwave Ultra-violet light such as sunlight.  This image was taken in natural lighting close to a sunlit window, partially in order to show how even and saturated the Orange color was in this natural colored diamond.  Stilllife photos seldom do justice to a scintillating, fiery diamond, and this INTENSE ORANGE diamond is virtually alive with color when rotated in the hand.  There is so much pure orange coloration in this diamond that it is at the upper boundary of Intense grade and just below the Vivid color level.  Rare find.  Even rarer price at less than $60,000 per carat.

Very interesting fancy colored diamond known as a Chameleon diamond that changes color when brought out of a cool, dark place or heated gently.  This particular diamond is more Yellowish when brought out of the dark.  Almost reminds me of an American politician's behavior.  One could describe this diamond as "Bottle Green" or "Moss Green", but the diamond is much more lively when rotated in the light, artificial or natural, than this image would suggest.  The combination of Gray, Yellow, and Green can also be described as an Olive color.  Large, well-made fancy colored diamond of SI1 eye-clean clarity in a well-proportioned Radiant cut.  Fine addition to any serious gem collection and would make an outstanding center diamond for a custom jewelry piece.  Chameleon diamonds are getting harder and harder to find, a sign of their growing popularity.
