INTENSE Purplish PINK 0.44 carat Round Brilliant Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


Over the years, I have come to appreciate and seek out the rarest colors of diamonds that consistently have provided annual price appreciation for collectors and investors.  Some of the more common diamond colors have not proven to be as resilient in price due to the persistent weakness in the global economy over the last several years and these diamonds' ready availabilities.  Since Pink diamonds, often sourced from the Rio Tinto Argyle Mine in Western Australia, are one of the best performing colors of diamond, I have concentrated on obtaining these very rare and increasingly scarce diamonds for my new and existing clients.  As I have repeatedly told clients over the last 5 plus years, the total carats offered at each Argyle Tender Offer conducted for an invitation-only audience at various key locations around the world each year is declining year to year.  Deep shaft mine production at Argyle has not been initiated to replace the former Pink diamond production now terminating at the historic Argyle open pit operation.  Rare to begin with, Pink diamonds are becoming rarer with each passing month due to constricting supply AND BURGEONING DEMAND.

This warning to collectors and investors has often gone unheeded, but the facts speak for themselves:  Pink diamond prices have tripled and quadrupled over the last decade, and there is no indication that this trend will subside any time soon.  In fact, the most expensive Intense and Vivid Pink diamonds in the $150,000 to $350,000 range have performed at the top of the charts.  Investors with means are very anxious to get out of U.S. Dollars, whether they be in New York City or Hong Kong or London.  Portable wealth that can be transported to any safe deposit box in the world at a moment's notice.

The excellent example of Pink diamond shown above is very well-saturated at the upper end of the Intense grade level, and is exceptionally clean for a Pink diamond at SI1 Clarity.  An even rarer color, Purple is evenly mixed throughout the diamond, providing the viewer with purplish facets throughout the top-down Table and Crown View shown here.  Few fancy colored diamonds are made into the Brilliant Round cut due to the original distribution of color found in the rough stone, so this INTENSE PURPLISH PINK diamond is covering all the bases of the Crystalline Diamond.  Considered a large size for an Argyle Pink to boot.  Intense Purplish Pink diamonds trade around the world for $135,000 to $150,000 per carat each an every day.  Do the math.

Fancy DEEP PINK 1.12 carat Radiant Brilliant Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD
 


Superb example of an Argyle-sourced DEEP PINK fancy colored diamond that is exceedingly rare on several counts: Size, Purity of Color, and Argyle Provenance.  One of my overseas suppliers has been personally attending the very exclusive Argyle Tender Offers over the last several years, and can now provide paperwork that establishes the source of the top-draw Pink diamonds that he offers me for resale.  One significant aspect of Deep Pink diamonds versus intense and vivid color grades of Pink is that they occupy a region in color space, spectrally, that is very close to the famed grade of Red in diamond.  There are indeed several reddish facet flashes within this diamond. The warm light source for this image is imparting some orangey hues in the result, but GIA grades this Pink diamond a Pure Pink without orangey or purplish modifiers that are most often found in Argyle diamond.

Full GIA certificate along with Argyle Mine cert accompanied this super-Pink diamond.  Large, over one-carat Pink diamonds are a vanishing item from the Western Australian Argyle Mine, which is progressively ceasing operations due to the staggering operating costs Rio Tinto is experiencing with the mine.  Increasing scarcity equals higher and higher prices for Argyle Pink diamonds well into the future.  Get out of devaluing Dollars into an asset that has appreciated by no less than 35% per annum over the last 15 years.

SOLD
 


A true Strawberry or Raspberry colored diamond in the extremely rare Asscher cut with Argyle Mine Certificate that was purchased directly from a 2012 Argyle Tender Offer for less than $200,000 per carat!  What a find.  Rarity ingredients are:  Depth of Color, Asscher cut, Eye-clean Clarity, Argyle Tender Diamond.  Once again a Pure Pink diamond without a secondary modifying color, no hints of brownish hues, orangey hues, or purplish hues per GIA.  Argyle Tender diamonds always sell at a premium to Argyle diamonds that are obtained from secondary or tertiary purchasers, a panache that the marketplace considers very desirable as to provenance determination.

Emerald cut, in this case a Square Emerald cut or Asscher cut, is very rare in such ultra-rare diamonds since the facet pattern creates large mirror-like facets in the crown area that tends to wash out the color saturation of the end product.  However, this exceptional Pink diamond has so much color within its crystalline structure, that you get the best of both worlds in diamond manufacture:  Marvelous cut plus top-notch color saturation!  In my personal opinion, the Asscher cut is the king of diamond facet patterns.

There is so much depth of color within this Pure Pink diamond that one could classify this fancy colored diamond as a Deep Pink which places the color designation closer to the Red region of the color spectrum.  Equipment measurement of the color of this Intense Pink Argyle diamond would be required to confirm this distinction, BUT THE DIAMOND SPEAKS FOR ITSELF ......... LITERALLY SCREAMING A BURGUNDY COLOR.

Here is another strong example of Intense Pink diamond that has been graded pure Pink by GIA.  The Intense level of saturation is very solid in this diamond as displayed by its overall richness of color; in fact, this Pink diamond is a high-end Intense which borders on the Vivid region of color saturation.  Priced below market as a Pure Pink diamond, the $47,000 per carat asking price with this much color for a Pink could easily be $65,000 per carat.  Heavily saturated diamond.  Great entry into the pink diamond marketplace for any collector or investor.

Wow, this VIVID Purplish PINK dewdrop is so saturated that one could mistake it for a Red diamond.  Exquisite color.  Once again an Argyle Pink diamond with source of origin documented directly from the mine.  Few mortals have an opportunity to attend these special event sealed-bid auctions at various major cities around the globe each year, but those who do are struck by the persistent increases in prices and decreases in total carats offered per tender by Argyle.  I have never been adverse to collecting very rare fancy colored diamonds in 15 point to 30 point carat weights.  Very nice things can come in very small packages.  Plus, there is an affordability issue per diamond that many of us collectors adhere to in order to assure liquidity upon resale.  Once the American public wakes up to the reality that the Government and Federal Reserve are on a steady path to Dollar Devaluation or Debasement, then they will recognize the ultimate value of wealth preservation in such diminutive, high-value assets such as fancy colored diamonds.

Currently, the most expensive, rarest fancy colored diamonds are selling the fastest, because the big-moneyed investors in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, and New York want to get out of as many Dollars as quickly as possible.  The $150,000 to $350,000 fancy colored diamonds that WCM sells, exceptionally rare diamonds that never even make it to this website, are in very high demand around the world as Central Banks print money in a path to competitive currency devaluation to attempt to bolster sagging domestic export industries and massive debt repayments.  As the world slides deeper and deeper into recession and eventually Depression due to Tens of Trillions of Dollars of Debt becoming virtually worthless, students of history look to the Weimar Germany period of hyper-inflation and cringe at what that will do to their financial well-beings.

This Ruby Red PINK diamond would make a spectacular broach or pendant with a surround of tiny colorless, white diamonds and a Platinum setting to keep all of the colors complementary.  Jewelry design is also a service offered by Wexford Capital Management, and the setting costs over and above the center diamond cost carry only a 10% mark-up over wholesale cost.  Just in time for the Holidays.

Fancy INTENSE GREEN 0.32 carat Cushion Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


On a level with Blue as to true rarity in fancy colored diamonds, GREEN is very difficult to obtain where the predominant color is pure Green and not a yellowish green or Olive green.  Cutters often leave some of the brownish "skin" found on Green diamond rough to provide proof of natural original; hence, a reference to "brown patches" is found in this diamond's GIA report with respect to the clarity of this and other Green diamonds.  Note that the GIA recorded patches on this very well-made diamond are toward the lower crown facets by the girdle, an area that makes them almost invisible to the naked eye.  This fact is confirmed by the image above.  The yellowish facet flashes seen in the table view of this well-saturated Green diamond are most likely the diffraction of natural light in the imaging studio, where the yellow component of sunlight has inadvertently entering the picture.  Because the color green is the combination of blue and yellow wavelengths of light, it is virtually impossible to observe a green diamond, even a Pure Green as in this example, without seeing these yellowish facets to some degree and from different viewing angles.

A diamond color class that has done well and will continue to do well along with the other colors of diamond found on this page.  Many Green diamonds in the Intense level of saturation have nowhere near the amount of color that this Shamrock diamond does.

One of the largest Brown colored diamonds I have seen in some time.  Stephen Hofer may grade this fancy colored diamond a Dark Yellowish BROWN or a Dark Yellowish Orangey BROWN upon actual instrument measurement of this outstanding diamond, so I would recommend any purchaser of this specimen to pay the $400 or so cost to further pinpoint the color of this very large diamond.  Regardless of the technical color grade of the gem, it is very lively in it's presentation to the eyes with a brilliance and scintillation uncommon to a colored diamond with a Dark tonal balance AND a Brown predominant color.  If this diamond had more orangey hues, then it would be considered a Cognac diamond.  It is very close to this ever popular and increasingly scare designation.  I am quite certain there is not another diamond like this in Nature or in the diamond district of currently besieged New York City ( Sandy Disaster Zone ).

INTENSE YELLOW 2.03 carat Cushion cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


A very solid Daffodil Yellow diamond at the Intense level of color saturation and of notable size.  This diamond has a lot going for it, including a reasonable price at this stage in the bull market for fancy colored diamonds. Don't be fooled that there is any brown or black in this diamond; that is the cancellation of light internally within the diamond that gives the allusion of dark facets, but when you see this diamond in its snug little jeweler's box resting on a white surface, you can see it is pure Yellow, period.  Photographing fancy colored diamonds can be a real challenge.  The Kelvin temperature of the light source can have a major impact as well as the angle that the table is positioned to the axis of the camera's lens also.  Nothing compares with holding the carbonic wonder in your hand and rotating the diamond to see the scintillation, brilliance, and fire displayed by the cutter's artful composition of facets to create the final gem.

Yellow still remains the most popular and affordable color class of diamond.  I would be remiss not to include a few stellar examples for sale on this site.  While it may be more economically sensitive due to its relative abundance in relation to other, more rare colors, it has held its own during the Financial Collapse of 2008 and is gaining favor and pricing pressure as the months go forward.  When Dollars are a wasting asset, Yellow diamonds are an alternative that have proven their store of value status for hundreds of years.

Fancy ORANGE Brown 5.04 carat ASSCHER Brilliant Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


By the very construct of GIA's color grading system, this exceptionally large COGNAC diamond has approximately 30% ORANGE as the secondary color modifier; otherwise, the diamond would be graded an Orangey Brown diamond with only a hint of orangey hues.  There are some yellowish hues within this outstanding specimen, partially due to the diffraction of light within the crystalline structure as a component of natural light, but in almost all viewing angles for this Autumnal Beauty the color Orange rings out loud and clear.  It is the large Orange component that adds to the rarity and desirability of this fancy colored diamond.  Totally eye-clean gem with some minor inclusions in the table region, but what mortal could ask Mother Nature to create such a large and magnificent diamond without some infinitesimally small imperfections during the process.  Quite a huge number of carbon atoms to get in line over millions of years for this Giant Cognac to be born.  A true collector's gem that at $7,700 per carat is a well-priced example of Nature's art in diamond.  The square emerald cut creates more light and brilliance through the table and crown regions of the diamond, very evenly dispersing the inherent body colors, so any suggestion of dullness or lack of scintillation is totally off base.

I have seen very few Blue diamonds come out of the Rio Tinto Argyle Mine, and the fact that this Deep Sea Blue diamond possesses both an Argyle certificate and an Argyle laser inscription, makes it a one-of-a-kind Blue diamond.  Now GIA has graded this fancy colored diamond as a Dark Blue Gray color class, but I wonder if this specimen could not also be graded as a Deep Blue without the gray modifier listed at all.  Deep and Dark colored diamonds have had black added in varying amounts to yield deeper and deeper color schemes in diamonds, but isn't Gray just a variation of Black with differing amounts of lightness added or subtracted??  Totally confused yet?

In a nutshell, this Blue Sapphire colored diamond has a lot of Blue in it, just note the side-view image shown above that also shows the Argyle Laser Inscription ( 3rd girdle facet from the left ).  In fact, my trained eyes would say that Blue is the predominant color of this diamond with even Violetish hints of color present.  Any way you cut it, no pun intended, this Blue Gray diamond has a lot going for it, and the fortunate purchaser will have an Argyle Blue diamond at a very, very reasonable price.

Oh, did I mention that the clarity is very rare for a fancy colored diamond at VVS2?!!

Fancy VIVID Yellowish ORANGE 1.44 carat Cushion cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

About six years ago, I discovered that pure Orange diamonds or Orange diamonds with a trace of Yellowish hues were much rarer than members of the trade realized.  As a result, they remained under-priced for a time.  So WCM placed several very significant Orange and Yellowish Orange diamonds in client portfolios.  And we are very glad we did.

The prices for these Pumpkin Orange diamonds have risen steadily since then, and more and more collectors/investors are actively seeking these still-unappreciated rarities for their collections and portfolios.  Personally, autumnal colors are one of my favorite palettes, so I am still advising existing and new clients to seek one of these Orange wonders while they still can at an affordable price.

Most pure Orange diamonds, I would say 97%, contain some Yellowish hues in them because the nature of the Orange crystalline structure is to fluoresce yellow when excited by UV light.  So it is almost impossible for an Orange diamond to exist in nature without some secondary color modification via the yellow wavelengths of light.  So regardless of grading by GIA or others, one is well-served to pay only the price for a Yellowish Orange diamond to achieve 99% of the pumpkin saturation found in a pure Orange diamond.  Totally confused?  Give me a call for clarification if necessary.

At $55,000 per carat for a 1 carat Plus Orange diamond, this carbonic wonder is a steal and a gem worthy of the most discriminating collection or portfolio.  Buy while you can.  In 5 years time, you will not be sorry you did so.

Never get into a bidding war on any tangible asset that is extremely popular with bidders than have bottomless pockets of rotting U.S. Dollars.  Buy those assets, such as Fancy Violet colored diamonds, that have yet to show up on most investors/ collectors' radar screens and you will do well over time.  Never overpay for an asset if you can buy it at a price that does not reflect its true value or, in this case, its EXTREME RARITY.  Ask any diamond broker to go out today and find a 0.25 carat or larger Gray Violet diamond for you and you will grow old waiting for both a reply and a specimen to purchase.  THEY ARE JUST NOT OUT THERE!  I have been trying with overall success with my colored diamond clients over the last 7 years of placing fancy colored diamonds in their possession THAT HAVE NOT CLIMBED TO THE MOON in price due to media exposure and subsequent mass bidding by interested parties.  Purples and Violets are in a class by themselves that when compared to the rarity of even Argyle Pink diamonds, are much, much rarer.  So don't get washed ashore with the tide; swim out to the rocks where no one is swimming and the rewards will be equally gratifying on this out-to-sea catbird's seat.  With an Argyle provenance from a 2012 Argyle Auction Tender with accompanying Argyle Certificate, this VIOLET DIAMOND is hard to beat.  Well-priced AND well-documented.  When dealing with colored diamonds that have Gray as a secondary color modifier, a suggestion of deep or dark tones just comes with the territory.  But violet is seldom found in Nature without a gray or grayish modifier.  This very rare diamond in person is much livelier and brilliant than any two-dimensional image can portray.  Oh, laser-inscribed Argyle control number on girdle.

Fancy VIVID YELLOW (CANARY) 5.03 carats EMERALD cut GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


The perfect example of a CANARY YELLOW diamond.  With the very large mirror-like facets of this very regal Emerald cut, the rough stone the cutter put on his wheel had to have a superb concentration of Yellow in order to prevent this fine jewel from grading as a less-saturated class of Intense yellow.  Those mirror-like crown and pavilion facets can throw a lot of white light up through the table and crown facets, but this cut diamond is as saturated a Yellow diamond as I have ever observed.  Due to the exceptional size, cut, and color of this Canary Yellow diamond, it possesses top-drawer pricing, but the buyer of such a unique and worthy gem will not regret his or her decision over the years to come.  With Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry, this one-of-a-kind colored diamond is at the absolute pinnacle of Fancy Yellow diamonds.  And being just below Flawless on the Clarity scale, the size of the diamond does not allow a single inclusion to be visible to the naked-eye.  Well worth the price.  Easy way to get out of a chunk of rotting Dollars and transport your new treasure to another land in the lining of a trench coat.  Tumultuous times are just around the corner.  Printing money has never ended well for a single nation on earth throughout recorded history.

This large and very well-made Brown diamond has the distinct appearance of a Cognac diamond with some definite hint of Orangey hues blended with Yellow throughout the body of the diamond.  Based on the color palette that meets the eye, one can also observe that this is more of a Yellowish Orangey Brown diamond of the Cognac genre than a less rare Yellow Brown diamond.  A Stephen Hofer colored diamond report would be well worth obtaining to put the question to rest.  In any case, a superb gem with Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry that would be a stand-out contribution for any Fancy Colored Diamond collection or portfolio.  Remember that part of the reason for acquiring fancy colored diamonds is to retain purchasing power, and one is never guaranteed capital gain returns with any tangible asset.  In a global systemic collapse, retention is far superior to decimation.

Fancy INTENSE GREEN 1.51 carats Cushion Brilliant cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD
 


One of the five rarest colors in naturally occurring colored diamonds, Green is a color that few collectors ever have an opportunity to own.  Most Green diamonds have some hint of Yellowish hues within, and since this very, very rare diamond is graded as a pure Green by GIA, one is to expect that the yellowish areas shown in the image above are solely due to the natural light being used to illuminate the diamond in the studio. A very well-saturated Green diamond that displays many facets that are almost at the Vivid class of color, so that the price per carat of less than $130,000 is totally competitive and reasonable in today's very active colored diamond marketplace.  Very few specimens of pure Green diamond exist in nature, and even fewer ever make it onto the cutter's wheel.  Excellent choice for those "enlightened" souls who are exiting fiat currencies for the relative safety of tangible assets such as GIA-certified fancy colored diamonds.  The color of real money, Green.

Green diamonds are formed through a radiation process that takes millions of years, so the growth of the crystalline structure is unique in the field of fancy colored diamonds.

The Classic Canary Yellow diamond!  A "spready" cut diamond which makes the finished diamond look larger than 1.50 carat from the top-down or table view; in fact, this Daffodil looks more like a 1.70 carat sized Vivid Yellow than 1.50 carat.  As seen from the body or side view in the second image, the rich yellow color throughout the colored diamond is uniformly distributed, and the dark band seen in the first/ table-view image is merely the cancellation of light based on the angles of the pavilion facets directly below to the relevant table and crown facets.  In a slightly different viewing angle they would totally disappear.  Lots and lots of yellow coloration in this very well-made diamond with Good Polish and Good Symmetry with a Medium Blue fluorescence under UV light-waves, a characteristic of many Canary Yellow diamonds.  Prices of these exceptional Yellows continue to move up year after year; buy one of size such as this specimen while it is still affordable.

As I have stated previously throughout this website, Cognac colored diamonds of size are a color class with rarity that is under-appreciated in the marketplace.  All of my suppliers around the world have repeatedly told me over the last several years that it is nearly impossible to find Cognac diamonds of size.  At just over $7,000 per carat, this almost 2 carat Autumnal Beauty is much rarer than its price would suggest.  Back in 2003 I put together my own collection of Cognac colored diamonds and have pleasantly watched the prices of the individual diamonds appreciate by some 10% to 15% on average per annum.  I personally find this rich liqueur color very pleasing, with a warm presentation that reminds one of a crisp Autumn day with a myriad of earthy, Fall colors simmering in the season's cool breezes.  There is a lot of Orange in this diamond.  Buy a large Cognac diamond before their prices reflect their absolute rarities.

Basically, the Pinnacle of Colored Diamond Rarity, a Pure Red diamond without any Purplish or Brownish modifying colors.  A common name for this color would be RUBY.  Source of origin is not documented for this Ruby Red diamond, but it is most likely from the Argyle Mine in Western Australia.  My overseas suppliers are rapidly running out of any Red diamonds in inventory, which means that foreign investors, for one, have come to the conclusion that the race to domestic currency devaluation is on in a world of sagging overall demand tempered by the largest-ever debt overhang at the personal, corporate, and governmental levels.

Americans are less familiar with a sovereign currency going close to zero in buying power, but they are about to experience the progressive re-valuation of their once-great Dollars on the world stage.  Buyers in Asia in particular, Hong Kong comes to mind, snap up Red diamonds as soon as they are presented to them.  They definitely know something that Americans are slow to admit to:  endless money printing by a Central Bank floods the world with Trillions of Dollars of new currency that does nothing over time but lessen the value of each individual unit of same.  That is the classic Supply and Demand Tenet that comes out of Econ 101 textbooks.

And the rush is on to get out of large chunks of Dollars in particular to acquire assets that are easily transported across borders and not only hold their value during inflationary times as we are in, but appreciate as more currency holders move funds into tangible assets such as fancy colored diamonds.  It is much, much better to have Red in your portfolio than to have it on your face when the inevitable Dollar Collapse comes.  U.S. officials have only pushed the problem into the near-future, they have done NOTHING to solve financial and economic problems since the Panic of 2008 began.  Money always goes where it is treated best AND MONEY HAS BEEN TREATED VERY WELL IN THE RAREST OF FANCY COLORED DIAMONDS FOR HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF YEARS, I COULD ACCURATELY SAY FOR MILLENNIA.

Just below the rarity strata of Red and Violet, comes the Purple diamond color class that still flies below the radar when it comes to its market valuation by the vast majority of investors.  GIA has graded the symmetry of this diamond's cut to possess only "fair" symmetry, the presence-to-lack-of mirror imaging on either side of an imaginary center axis to the gem.  The cutter still managed to maximize color saturation and carat weight in the final analysis.  Resultantly,  I am recommending this diamond based on its Amethyst color, its level of Purple saturation, and its unusual size.  Hand in hand to these outstanding qualities, of course, is a bargain price for a Purple diamond.  Whether of Siberian or Australian origin, this is an exceptionally rare fancy colored diamond.  Totally expected that a Purple diamond would carry Included Level 1 Clarity ( I1 ) ...... it is very difficult to even see where these purported "extra ingredients" to the carbonic soup of formation exist within the diamond.  Very nice rarity.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but there may be a hint of another color modifier in this DEEP BLUE colored diamond ( Violetish hues? ).  Regardless, it is truly an impressive colored diamond with a richness of color that even suggests "royalty".  One would think that such a dark tone to a blue diamond would make the diamond dull in appearance, but that is hardly the case with this Deep Blue Sea diamond.  This diamond is very lively when rotated in the light.  Oval cuts lend themselves to maximizing the depth of color in a nature Blue diamond, and this 15 point gem is a case study in the application of the master cutter's art.  Excellent VS2 clarity accompanies this well-made diamond ..... just another reason to find a space in your vault for this exceedingly rare diamond.  With Very Good Polish and Good Symmetry this Deep Blue diamond has "Buy Me" written all over it.  I always like showing a "body or tweezers view" of a one-of-a-kind diamond such as this to display the true body color of the diamond, which in this specimen is undoubtedly ..... blue, blue, blue.

Fancy VIVID YELLOW 1.02 carat Cushion Cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD
 


Last but not least in our triumvirate of Canary diamonds is an extremely well-made fancy colored diamond of 1.02 carats and Vivid Yellow color grade.  In imaging and viewing these heavily saturated Yellow diamonds, one will always see some facets that appear somewhat brownish in hue, but this is the result of off-axis light exiting the diamond at angles that cancel much of the inherent color and brilliance of the diamond.  Were you to view these particular facets on-axis or at an angle that is perpendicular to the facet surface, you would once again see the bright, pure yellow that composes the body color of the diamond.

The pricing of this Canary Yellow diamond reflects not only the superb coloration embodied within this crystalline wonder, but also the exceptional "make" of the diamond that gives it an Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry.  Polish and Symmetry often have to be compromised in a fancy colored diamond in order to maximize color presentation, but not with this carbonic wonder.  At $17,000 per carat, this is still a very reasonable price for such an exemplary fancy colored diamond.

I would wager that this diamond will perform better than stocks, bonds, and real estate in the next 5 to 10 years.

Tangible assets such as fancy colored diamonds will prove to be much more stable and rewarding than almost all other asset classes except maybe precious metals bullion in the difficult period for the globe that I see immediately ahead.

Fancy Gray GREEN 0.62 carat Pear cut VVS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


A wonderful OLIVE colored diamond that is rarer than most people realize.  The gray secondary modifier actually offers a darkening or enriching of the predominant Green color within this beautiful diamond.  Surprisingly, and which also makes this diamond rarer than the marketplace realizes, this Olive diamond has no yellowish modifiers that often occur in combination with gray and green in diamond.  A well-made fancy colored diamond with a "spready look" that makes the diamond look closer to an 80 point gem than its actual carat weight.  Would be a knock-out center stone in a custom jewelry piece.

Dark Grayish Yellowish GREEN 2.04 carat Modified Cushion GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


This Dark OLIVE fancy colored diamonds possesses a very unique coloration as well as a series of unique facet patterns that make this large diamond a true collector's item.  Uniqueness is a good thing in the world of colored diamonds, and when you can have both Color, Cut, and well-above-average Clarity in a single gem, it is certainly worthy of acquisition.  Don't be fooled by the depth of color in this diamond thinking that it may be dull or lifeless in the flesh.  Rotating this unique diamond in one's hand in natural light, such as sunlight, will display all of the brilliance, scintillation, and fire one has come to expect in well-made natural diamonds.  Would make a superb pendant or broach center diamond.  We charge no commission on jewelry material such as gold, platinum, melee, or side stones that would be incorporated into a WCM designed and manufactured piece of colored diamond jewelry.  Tiffany's would be proud.

SOLD


Very unusual class of fancy colored diamonds, Chameleon diamonds that actually change color when placed first in a dark area and then brought out into natural light.  They tend to produce more yellow/yellowish colorations during this transition period, then eventually revert to their inherent body colors.  These two very well-matched Pair cut diamonds swing between a Moss Green and an Olive Green and would be perfect, at 1.04 and 1.07 carats, respectively, for a pair of Teardrop Tiffany-style earrings.  Whatever slight variations exist between the two diamonds would be impossible to discern with earrings since the human eye can only observe one earring closely at a time, but get an overall, correct perception of being a well-matched pair.  These two Green wonders would be considered a well-matched pair sitting on the bedroom bureau.  We have a goldsmith in New York City who could do a drop-dead design using these two exquisite fancy colored diamonds.

Fancy VIVID Purplish PINK 0.54 carat RADIANT Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD
 


This is what is know as a Bubble Gum Pink diamond.  A totally outstanding example of a VIVID PINK Argyle Diamond, with such saturation of Pink with purplish hues and even Reddish tones within the body of the diamond.  Over a half carat and with Argyle Tender 2010 status, this strawberry wonder is favorably priced at $220,000 per carat when less stunning Vivid Pinks that I have seen have gone for $250k to $300k at this carat weight range AND of Argyle provenance.  Many Pink diamond collectors specifically seek out Argyle Tender diamonds, so there is a constant and growing market for Pink diamonds with this pedigree.  This Vivid Pink diamond compares very well with the Pure Red diamond listed above, but without any brownish hues that are suggested in the tonal presentation of WCM 763; I may be wrong on this, but have seen enough Red diamonds over the last decade to make that observation.

 I am quite certain that when Stephen Hofer measures the color composition of this Pink diamond, there will be hints of reddish hues within the spectral analysis.  In fact there is so much richness of pink and red in this diamond, GIA has been known to grade Deep Pink diamonds as Purplish Reds when in fact the diamonds are actually strictly in the Pink color class.  This is another reason it is essential to obtain the Stephen Hofer Colored Diamond report when acquiring such high-end Pink and Red diamonds; Mr. Hofer uses multiple pieces of instrumentation to physically measure the color within a fancy colored diamond, whereas GIA relies totally upon three skilled graders' inputs based upon comparison to a master set of fancy colored diamonds.  The human eye can be fooled with such slight nuances of color between Deep Pink and Red, especially when the typical modifier of Purple is included in the color palette.

Have you noticed that every Pink diamond that I have selected from my myriad of suppliers in 2013 has been sold?!  What does that tell you about Pink diamond demand and especially Argyle Pink diamond demand??!!

Outstanding specimen of a Deep Purplish PINK diamond in a rather rare cut, Princess cut, with the pointed corners of a geometric square.  Argyle provenance diamond with the mine's original certification, a document in years past has been exceptionally difficult to obtain.  Argyle inscribed its control number on the girdle of this richly colored Pink diamond so that there will never be a question going forward as to where this diamond came from.  V2 clarity which is well-above-norm for Argyle Pinks these days, and a diamond worthy of any colored diamond portfolio or collection.  Purchase an affordable Pink diamond before the wheels come off the U.S. Dollar.  Currency strength is all about investor confidence, and personally, I have zero faith the U.S. will do the right things to maintain a strong domestic currency.  Get in the pink.
