VIVID Canary Yellow 1.53 carat Cushion Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


Seldom does one find a fancy colored diamond with a cut that parallels that of a colorless diamond, facet for facet.  This exceptionally saturated VIVID YELLOW diamond, known in the trade as a true "Canary Yellow", has the distinction of being so saturated in body color that the cutter did not have to modify the classic Cushion cut by one degree or facet.  This is highly unusual in the world of colored diamonds since most of the colored roughs require the utmost skill of the cutter to maximize overall color presentation through the table-view.  A Stephen C. Hofer Colored Diamond Report is available with this diamond, an analysis that further supports the utmost rarity of the color level and cut in this outstanding Canary diamond.  At less than $30,000 per carat, this one-of-a-kind diamond is very aggressively priced, a superb addition to any investor's or collector's portfolio.  One seldom sees this level of color in a Yellow diamond.

Fancy BLUE GREEN 0.33 carat Peat Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


An extremely rare color combination.  When you ever see Blue and Green as the predominant colors in a diamond, it is usually a hint of one or the other, such as Bluish Green or Greenish Blue.  To see Green as the overriding color with Blue as the secondary color, is notably rare in itself.  This "Aquamarine" diamond is virtually the color of the Pacific Ocean, and worthy of inclusion in the most discriminating of colored diamond collections.  Pure Green is actually more rare than Pure Blue in my experience and that of many expert gemologists that I deal with.  So to have a well-made diamond that is roughly 70% Green and 30% Blue as the GIA color designation suggests, it a rare find indeed.  Don't get caught up in the trap of insisting on all of your colored diamonds being 1/2 carat or larger, because in doing so you will pass up some of the most rare and spectacular colored diamonds that Mother Nature ever created.  My personal collection has many colored diamond below 50 points.  It is all about COLOR, COLOR, COLOR.

Fancy INTENSE Yellow Canary 2.06 carats Radiant Cut GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


A rather LARGE "Canary" Yellow diamond of Intense color saturation with very clean, VS1-Clarity.  This rare colored diamond would make a spectacular piece of custom "Tiffany-style" jewelry.  Don't come across that many 2-carat Plus richly-colored Yellow diamond these days, especially gems with stellar technical specs on the finished gem.  The diamond fluoresces a Strong Blue glow when exposed to Ultra-Violet light (UV), a very typical phenomenon for certain crystalline structures of Yellow diamonds referred to by "Type".  Professionally, I think this large Intense Yellow diamond is a steal at less than $9,500 per carat for such a strong colored and well-made diamond in today's very strong colored diamond market, BUT YOU BE THE JUDGE.

INTENSE Purplish PINK, Argyle laser-inscribed
I1, minute crystal

 Fancy INTENSE Purplish Pink 0.50 Radiant Cut I1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


It is certainly not every Pink diamond that has provenance as to its source of origin.  This well-saturated INTENSE PINK diamond actually has a laser inscription on the girdle that identifies the gem as an Argyle Mine Pink.  Adds value to an already low priced Pink that may be Included in clarity, but just barely so and not in such a manner that distracts one's attention from the Raspberry Pink hues emitted by the diamond through the Table View.  At less than $40,000 per carat for an Intense Pink, this is a bargain for someone savvy enough to snap it up.  I have several I1, I2 diamonds in my own collection and don't think twice about it anymore; it is all about color in these natural rarities and little else.  Well made in the very popular Radiant cut, and One-Half Carat is a new price level for colored diamonds, some 20% to 30% more than less-than- 1/2 carat diamonds.  That premium is not reflected in the pricing of this Intense Purplish Pink diamond.  Any orange facet flashes are the result of natural sunlight being used to illuminate the gem by the photographer.  Purplish hues are nicely blended within the rich Pink fields.

 Fancy Brown PINK 1.24 carat Radiant Cut SI1 GIA Colored Diamond
SOLD


Once again, the photographer has imaged this rare diamond with a sunlit background, causing the yellow light of natural sunlight to reflect within this Brown Pink diamond. There is no yellow or orange within this diamond, this is merely the play of natural lighting coming through the pavilion facets to the table.  There is, however, a predominance of PINK color within the crystalline structure and secondarily brown to give the Fancy color level more depth and apparent overall color saturation.  A singularly well-made colored diamond from a Master Cutter's wheel with Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry.  It is interesting that this Pink diamond would fluoresce a Medium Blue hue upon excitation with ultra-violet light, definitely something one would expect with a true Pink diamond.  I have told clients to buy nice Brownish Pink or Brown Pink diamonds when they have the chance.  The Argyle Mine is already closed, and the total population of Pink diamonds in the world, Orangey Pink, Purplish Pink, Pure Pink, and Brown/Brownish Pink is going to shrink as investors flee other assets in droves.  Expect virtually no new supply of Pink diamonds for many, many years to come, if ever.

Fancy DARK GREEN-Gray 0.73 carat Oval Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD

 
Although Gray is not technically a color for you purists out there, it is one of my favorite creations from Mother Nature in diamond.  There is a healthy dose of Green in this predominantly Gray diamond (hence, GIA grades the diamond Green-Gray versus Greenish Gray), a rare occurrence in itself; this combination with a strong Green secondary color makes the more common color of Gray infinitely more rare .  This particular color palette normally reminds me of Antique Pewter, but there is so much Green in this diamond that I am at a loss to provide a Common Name moniker for this hue.  Maybe an English Moss Green?  Very well made fancy colored diamond, with no lack of fiery scintillation and brilliance as a result of the cutter's art.  True collector's diamond, although there are few on Madison Avenue in NYC that fully appreciate the rarity and beauty of such a carbonic gem.

Fancy INTENSE Pinkish  PURPLE 0.57 carat Pear Cut SI3 Colored Diamond
SOLD
 

 
Unknown to many collectors and investors is the fact that Purple diamonds are probably the most rare color class next to the ultimate Red Diamond rarities.  One can always tell how much Pink secondary modifier is in a Purple diamond by the white-ish facets of internally reflected light .... they reveal the presence of Pink every so slightly in this superb example of an "Amethyst" colored diamond.  Also to be expected in addition to a Pink to Pinkish modifier in such a rarity is the presence of some form of natural inclusions, in this case a very minor "whitish feather" on the lower left area of the image where the table intersects with crown facets.  Not distracting, not a big deal, no impact on value upon re-sale, and another marker that this is indeed a Natural Purple diamond possibly from Siberian origin.  Very well-priced at about $85,000 per carat, have seen many in the $125,000 to $150,000 price per carat zone with not as much overall Purple coloration.  Buy a Purple diamond before the word gets out on their ultra-rarity.

VIVID GREEN BLUE 0.24 carat Radiant Cut VS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

I have seen a lot of fancy colored diamonds over the last decade that I have been studying and brokering them.  This Sea-deep Aquamarine color is exceptional and truly worthy of the finest fancy colored diamond collection.  Don't get distracted by the 24 point size of this supreme rarity:  Many of the finest collections have many 20 to 30 point specimens since it is all about COLOR, COLOR, COLOR above all other qualities in these rarities.  This $200,000 per carat pricing is not exorbitant at all for this Green Blue diamond, since diamonds are very, very seldom seen with this extremely rare color combination.  Magnificently cut diamond of high-end clarity at VS1 with Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry, all characteristics that are as rare as the depth of color in this carbonic wonder.  Blue is obviously the predominant color is this diamond, and the Green is so fully mixed with dollops of Blue that Aquamarine could have been the secondary color descriptor.  Holding this diamond in your hand and rotating it in the light would be better than watching an Academy award winning movie.  And much more profitable in the end.

Back in 2003, I had discussions with many 20- to 30-year veterans in the colored diamond trade and came to the conclusion that COGNAC colored diamonds were an undervalued segment of this already very rare class of diamond.  Beginning in 2009, the scarcity of these gems and subsequent pressure on pricing, proved my assertions correct.  I have been placing these Orange flavored gems in client collections and portfolios ever since, and the results have been very satisfactory to all concerned.  Images of colored diamonds taken suspended between tweezers thongs
are very revealing as to depth of color.  The pavilion section of the diamond is flooded with light, and the table view shows how much color and what hues are really present in the diamond. This is truly a predominantly ORANGE diamond, and with such a modest price for a One-Carat plus specimen, a budding or seasoned investor would find this increasingly rare gem an Autumnal addition of note.  Would make a stunning center stone for a high-end man's or woman's ring.

What a mosaic of BLUE hues come rushing through the table and crown areas of this very collectible natural colored diamond. Starting almost 2 years ago, I identified Gray and Grayish diamonds as another segment of the colored diamond market that was grossly undervalued and have been concentrating sourcing in this area ever since.  When the  overcast sky neutral color of Gray is mixed with such very rare colors as Blue, Green, Pink, and Violet, the rarity of the gem ascends to new levels in the marketplace.  A very BLUE diamond with incredible depth of color that suggests a "Sea" or "Blueberry" Blue moniker with an accurately tagged "hint of Gray".   And an affordable Blue specimen of definitely collectible size, close to 20 points.  Many of the colored diamonds in my personal collection are at this diamond's carat size range.  Try pricing any sized Fancy Blue diamond in today's colored diamond market with very strong buyers in Asia, and you will need Tim Geithner's U.S. Treasury checkbook to do so!  Won't last very long at this price. Mini-Hope Diamond with an exceptional Clarity level of VS1.

There is decidedly a strong Blue coloration to this diamond, hence, the GIA color description of BLUE-Gray where the secondary component of "Steel Blue" represents some 30% of overall color.  Reminds me of the color of freshly annealed steel just after forging on the blacksmith's hearth.  While this diamond is technically labeled a Gray Diamond, one could state that the gem has almost a 50% contribution from the Blue region of the spectrum based on the revealing tweezers shot above.  For a Fancy level of color saturation, the presence of Gray in this diamond provides more depth of color than one would normally expect.  Very nice cut, very nice size at almost a Half Carat, totally Eye-Clean, and a Gray diamond with more Blue within than normally found in this color combination.  Need I say more?!

Fancy VIVID YELLOW 2.11 carat Asscher Cut VVS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD
 

 
Outstanding CANARY YELLOW diamond in one of the most magnificent cuts, the ASSCHER or Square Emerald cut.  The large, mirror-like facets created by this bold cut require that the colored diamond be very clean both internally and on the surfaces ......... AND THIS RICHLY SATURATED YELLOW MEETS THAT CHALLENGE WITH A VVS1, almost Flawless, CLARITY!  While clarity is not the primary governing characteristic in making a colored diamond purchase decision, it certainly increases the value and appeal of a Vivid Yellow diamond with an Asscher facet pattern.  At a well-priced $27,000 per carat, this Saffron diamond could easily find its way into a one-of-a-kind piece of Tiffany's-style jewelry or just stay snuggly in the vault for periodic viewings.  In any case, this combination of highly saturated color, superb cutting, and almost flawless clarity put this Canary Yellow diamond in a class by itself.  Great way to get money out of an over-priced stock market or a failing U.S. financial system.

This Pure BLUE diamond has such a depth of color saturation that it mimics some Vivid Blue diamonds that I have seen.  Prices for Blue diamonds of any color class have been going through the roof since early 2009 as investors flee Dollars en masse and convert from financial assets to tangible assets that no one can debase.  This Intense Blue is only $140,000 per carat when I have seen them regularly for $200,000 to $270,000 per carat at this color level and carat weight.  Very popular with Asian investors and collectors, and they certainly have no shortage of U.S. Dollars to spend on tangible assets.  A Stephen Hofer Colored Diamond Report is provided with this diamond in addition to the GIA certificate in order to give the new owner as much information and education about this Intense Blue diamond and the world of Blue diamonds.  Very informative reading in each and every case.  Cutter did an excellent job of concentrating the emission of deep blue colors into the table region of the cut with still ample saturation coming off-axis from the well-made crown areas.  Work of art.  This Sea Ice diamond is toward the pinnacle of rarity in this asset class.

VIVID Orangey Yellow 3.15 carat Radiant Cushion Cut SI2 Colored Diamond
SOLD


Diamonds of all Orange flavors are red hot in the fancy colored diamond marketplace, not to mix colors from a metaphorical standpoint.  As I have noted numerous times throughout these pages, collectors have come to the realization that this color combination is probably the most economical way to acquire an Orange diamond.  Orange diamonds have become very popular over just the last 3 years, and were this a pure Vivid Orange diamond, it would cost around $350,000 plus.  The Yellow dominant color actually adds life and brilliance to this diamond, giving it diverse characteristics dependent upon viewing angles and lighting conditions.  Large and rare diamond that will do well in the years ahead.  Would be spectacular in a custom piece of jewelry.
