Dark Orangey Brown 0.81 carat Round cut VS1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

Dark Orangey Brown 0.81 carat Round cut GIA-certified Colored Diamond, SIDE VIEW

SOLD


Based on the body view or side view shown in the second image of this diamond, one can tell that the inherent, natural color of the diamond does not include Reddish hues, but the Table or Top-Down View would suggest otherwise.  The juxtaposition of Dark Brown and Orange can often emit reddish hues from within diamonds since Orange is the combination of Red wavelengths of light and Yellow wavelengths.  Quite an unusual color as a result. But upon second glance, one sees that it is really predominantly a very rich and deep Orange that is being emitted from the Table and Crown facets of this superb Cognac colored diamond.

Cognac diamonds are doing very well in the colored diamond marketplace as both dealers, jewelers, and investors are coming to realize the actual rarity of fine examples of this Orangey Brown color combination.  I started my own Cognac collection some 8 years ago, feeling that this was one color that was flying under the pricing radar and would someday gain popularity on a scale that forced its true rarity to surface via scarcity and subsequent pressure on prices.

Those little crystalline-looking "bubbles" that appear at 11 & 12 O'clock on the lower crown areas as well as around 6 O'clock are nothing but reflections of tweezer teeth that are reflected from the mirror surfaces of the facets.  VS1 Clarity is exceptional for a fancy colored diamond of any color class.  Nice size, superb color, and low price.

WOW!  I have always preferred Dark CHOCOLATE over milk chocolate as a chocolate connoisseur, but this is a splendid example of Mother Nature's creation of a DARK BROWN diamond.  There may be a slight presence of orange hues in the body of this diamond, but the color would have to be measured by a color scientist such as Stephen Hofer to determine its existence.  Would not matter if it did exist; orangey brown diamonds are considered more valuable in the marketplace than pure Brown if they tend toward the Cognac class of colored diamonds.  However, for a Pure Brown diamond in a magnificent EMERALD cut, this diamond is a show stopper.  Very large diamond at 2.29 carats with outstanding Clarity at VS2.  If there are any inclusions in an Emerald cut diamond with such large facets, they will literally pop out of the diamond.  Don't see a trace of one, and neither did GIA.

Very unusual that I would have so many Blue diamonds at my disposal for sale at one time, just do not see many of them in a year's time, especially high-quality specimens such as this over One-Half Carat "Sky-Blue" diamond.  It definitely helps to have overseas suppliers in Europe and Israel that receive material right from the mines or the cutters' wheels.  This is a very-well saturated Blue diamond that has regions such as the Table that can exhibit coloration more in the Intense range of Blue based upon angle of view.  Blue diamonds are increasingly scare as world collectors take them off the market almost as quickly as they appear.  The international market is far stronger than the U.S. market right now, because Americans do not recognize the history of even the Dollar as being a currency that has lost most of its purchasing power or value during repeated periods in U.S. history.  We are embarking on one of those periods right now with a Federal Reserve intent on devaluing the Greenback in a futile attempt to make our ballooning debts to the world manageable.  We are past the point of no return on debt service.  Dollar debasement is now in every American's future.

A well-made colored diamond that has Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry with two white feathers near the crown-girdle and crown-pavilion intersections that are very difficult to see.  Lots of color and potential in this Fancy Blue Round Brilliant cut diamond.  Borderline Intense class of Blue diamond.

Pink diamonds continue to be one of the hottest segments of the Fancy Colored Diamond market today, and the Vivid class of color saturation is usually considered the pinnacle of color by color purists.  Size does not matter when it comes to very heavily saturated Strawberry Pink diamonds such as this specimen; it is all about color in these carbonic wonders.  One could say that this diamond exhibits some Red flashes when rotated in natural light, the diamond is that saturated a Pink.  The marvelous "Fat Albert" Marquise cut provides more area for color concentration at the tips of this modified marquise cut diamond which only enhances the total presentation of Strawberry hues to the fortunate viewer.  This side view image also confirms this excellent level of color concentration that is not merely geometrically induced on the cutter's wheel.  True collector's gem that is worthy of the finest colored diamond collections or portfolios.  Would buy it myself if my boss would only give me a raise.

Fancy DARK Yellowish Brown 3.70 carat Cushion cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


A superb specimen of Brown diamond that possesses elements of both Yellowish and Orangey hues in a carat weight that lends itself mightily to a man's ring or a center diamond for a one-of-a-kind broach or pendent.  I would have graded this diamond a Deep Yellowish Orangey Brown, but the presence of both yellow and brown in a diamond tends to give the impression of Orange no matter how you label it.  There are notably Orange facet flashes within this diamond. Well made diamond that surprisingly fluoresces a Medium Blue under UV light, which is a characteristic of the presence of boron in a diamond, usually a yellow diamond. A very affordable large and beautiful fancy colored diamond.  More of the Cognac class than the recently heavily-promoted Chocolate class, but this may be more information than one needs to pull the lever on its purchase.

This is another one of my favorite colors in diamond that is not totally appreciated for its rarity, beauty, and liveliness when embodied in a well-made fancy cut diamond.  The unique characteristic of a chameleon diamond of morphing into a more yellowish-orangey overall coloration when kept in a dark area or gently heated is just icing on the cake for this classically colored OLIVE diamond.  This diamond is worth of any discerning collection of fancy colored diamonds, and its large size at 2.88 carats puts it into a category by itself for this color.  With Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry, this diamond also possesses a VS2 Clarity which should satisfy the toughest criteria for colored diamond selection.  Very well-made, large Olive diamond with no lack of liveliness for such a rich color.

SOLD


This the season to imbibe in lots and lots of COGNAC.  While GIA notes that this is a predominantly Yellow diamond, I beg to differ and assert with no modicum of modesty that this is predominantly an Orange diamond.  We will have none other than the Colored Diamond Maestro, Stephen Hofer do one of his colored diamond reports to ascertain the correctness of this assertion.  Half price for Mr. Hofer's report for the astute investor or collector who purchases this carbonic wonder.  Yellow is one of the key ingredients in the color, Orange ( Red being the other ), so it is not surprising that there are some hints of yellow flashes disbursed about this diamond.  But whenever there is even the slightest question as to the true body color of a diamond, observe the Side View or Body View to get a better handle on the overall, predominant color.

The exceptionally large size of this natural colored diamond, at a stocking busting 4.54 carats, provides another element of rarity to the gem, and lends itself to incorporation into a stunning man's ring or an equally stunning woman's broach or pendant.  These brownish Orange diamonds are increasingly difficult to find in sizes over 2 carats, so imagine my surprise when I was presented this mega-diamond by one of my overseas suppliers.  And the price per carat is equally surprising at a mere $7,600.  He who hesitates is lost.

Another indication that this is a true Brownish Orange COGNAC diamond is the fact that when exposed to short-wave Ultra-Violet light, the diamond fluoresces or emits a Medium Green coloration in multiple facets.  Having had my own Cognac diamond collection for over a decade now, I know from first-hand observation that this is a characteristic of high-end, true Cognac diamonds.  A rather surprising detail that the color green would be suggested under certain natural lighting conditions, but that is what I have seen with my own varied set of these increasingly popular diamonds.  So delving down into the molecular structure of this Orange diamond, one's outward observations are confirmed, even with the element of surprise at finding a combined color such as green that is the combination of yellow and blue.

Buy before Santa starts down the chimney.

And just so that you stay in the Pink today, here is a VIVID Pink fancy colored diamond that not only carries with it a full GIA report depicting Very Good Polish, Very Good Symmetry AND VS2 Clarity, but an Argyle Mine Certificate as well.  Pink diamonds with source of origin, particularly Argyle Tender Diamonds, always sell with a price premium in today's marketplace.  And rightfully so.  Although mine supply of pink, purple, and violet diamonds has dwindled significantly from Argyle over the last several years, this Australian site remains the premier source of rare Pink diamonds in the world.  The price curve for Fancy Pink diamonds, and especially Intense Pink and Vivid Pink classes, continues to bend upward as scarcity and demand increase simultaneously.  Buy the best Pink diamond you can afford because it will provide stellar returns over the long-term as they have over the millennia.

SOLD


A large, colorful, and very unique fancy colored diamond with a facet pattern that blends the best qualities of the Radiant cut, designed specifically for colored diamonds over 30 years ago, and the rounded facets of the Cushion cut, most apparent on the corners.  Tested as a chameleon diamond that takes on a more yellowish-orangey color when kept in a dark area and then taken back out into a normal room lighting situation; this type of diamond also embodies an yellowish-orangey tone when lightly heated in a lab under controlled conditions.  Do not heat diamonds at home, they are not novelties!

Green diamonds remain one of the top classes in rarity of fancy colored diamonds, and this very large 3 carat plus gem displays a Moss Green color while at the same time providing lots of brilliance and scintillation to the viewer.

You would really be buying this wonderful diamond for its normal state color, left out in a standard "daylight" room, and not for the novelty of the diamond's ability to change colors.

Does this diamond remind you of Valentine's Day?!!  This is the epitome of Fancy RED diamond when the color, usually blended with a splash of Purple tones such as this "Ruby Red" diamond, literally reaches out of the page and grabs you.  Very seldom do we obtain a One Carat Red diamond, especially one that is Eye-Clean at SI2 clarity.  Wonderfully unique gem, with Excellent Polish and Good Symmetry that speaks volumes about the level of skill displayed by the diamond's cutter.  Would be a heart-stopper in any crowd.  What else is there to say about such a rare and stunning diamond?!

A very informative Stephen C. Hofer Colored Diamond Report is included with this Ruby Red diamond.  There are no shortage of capable buyers around the world that would find the $2.3 Million price for this One Carat RED diamond to be reasonable and based on its outstanding color and clarity I would totally agree.  Most Red diamonds, especially large Red when they are ever found, are heavily included in the I1 to I2 clarity range.  Superb way to exit as many wasting U.S. Dollars as possible to obtain very portable wealth that can be transported anywhere around the globe at a moment's notice.

Having taken special art classes in oil painting when I was a very early teen, I have a very good eye for color because you study colors when attempting to put paint on canvas.  This diamond definitely has some Purplish hues to it, so it can reasonably be graded as an INTENSE PURPLISH PINK diamond.  It is actually priced as a Pink diamond with a secondary color modifier, there really are so few Pure Pink diamonds in existence that a collector should almost expect to see other hues such as Purple, Orange, or Brown within a predominantly Pink diamond.  If you do not yet have a solid, heavily-saturated Pink diamond in your portfolio, and this is a superb example of the Pink color class, this beauty would be perfect for you. This is a high-end Intense Pink diamond, meaning there are some facets that are emitting a color level of Vivid, and this is no small feat in a diamond with Emerald cut mirror-like facets that wash out color in a heartbeat.  Buy before the maddening crowd figures out the Dollar is going into the Dustbin of History.

VIVID Purplish PINK 0.54 carat Radiant cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


The overall supply of heavily-saturated, EYE-CLEAN, PINK diamonds is rapidly diminishing since one of the trademarks of an Argyle Pink diamond is the presence of several white feathers within the diamond; some of these ultra-rare beauties are peppered with carbon spots where Mother Nature didn't finish converting the carbon to diamond.  It is always a question as to whether or not these inclusions are readily apparent to the meticulous viewer or not, and whether these minor imperfections are located in the immediate table regions such that the eye has a hard time avoiding them.  There is no table region inclusion in this diamond, but the color is so rich, and almost at the Strawberry level of Deep Pink, that the un-louped or unaided eye would not be able to pick up on it or be distracted by it if it existed.  Once again, the cutter has maximized total coloration by his skillful facet cutting and polishing so that he has produced a VIVID PINK diamond, with enhancing Purplish hues to boot, that almost looks more like a Ruby Red than a Purplish Pink diamond from the Table View.

Many of the Argyle Pinks that exist in diamond dealers' inventories around the world today are heavily included such that the inclusions are distracting and unappealing.  This is just a fact of life when dealing with Argyle sourced Pink diamonds, and there are virtually no other mine sources that produce a modicum of the annual carat production or quality of the Western Australian Argyle Mine.  Not only is total Pink production diminishing at Argyle, but I would argue that the overall quality of some of the Pinks is diminishing as well.  This is what happens when a mine vein or pipe begins to run dry.  Totally expected.  Vivid Pink diamonds are increasingly hard to come by, especially clean ones.

One of my personal favorite CUTS in diamond, the Emerald cut has such large mirror-like facets that a natural colored diamond must be inherently very well-saturated to provide solid overall coloration once off the cutter's wheel.  This rectangular shaped Emerald has been cut to maximize the pure Blue color of this diamond through the ever-so-important Table and Crown viewing areas where one can almost see Deep to Vivid levels of Blue.  The side- or body-view of any colored diamond is very informative to a prospective buyer, since the cutter's art cannot geometrically induce additional color to the gem at this perspective, and it provides a snapshot as to the inherent coloration of the rough diamond that the cutter has worked with.  Normally, there is some influence of grayish hues in a Blue diamond, but as one can plainly see from the body-view of this exquisite diamond, it is a Pure Blue without any presence of any secondary color modifier; gray only appears in the top-down view due to light cancellation which requires a physics lesson.  Size is not a negative in such ultra-rare diamonds, since few buyers are capable or lucky enough to find a half-carat or larger Pure Blue diamond that they can afford.  Buy a pure Blue when you can; they seldom come along.

Ah, my Kingdom for a matched pair of stellar Cognac diamonds in brilliant round cuts with exceptional VS1 and VS2 clarities!!  Very hard to find such a well-matched set of twins that would make a stunning pair of earrings for the Yuletide season.  Put aside your fears about ObamaCare and the economy, and make a feel-good purchase for the Mrs. of a pair of fancy colored diamonds that will more than weather the storm.  Sell some of those overpriced stocks and bonds if you can swim against the dribble from Wall Street, it would only be a prudent move away from bubbly financial markets that have been juiced way beyond real value by Fed Money Pumping and Fiscal Largess in Washington.

Eventually the roosters will come home to roost in a world flooded with Zero Cost Money, and one of the few assets that will hold Value in this Sea of Excess Liquidity will be fancy colored diamonds.  They have maintained their values and appreciated over thousands of years, good times and bad, and they will do so in the Obama/Yellen Depression that is just around the corner.  Smart squirrels bury acorns in the Fall before the harsh winds of Winter blow!  HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

Don't under-estimate the appreciation potential due to increasing scarcity of Brown diamonds, especially when they tend toward the Cognac side of the ledger with traces of Yellowish and/or Orangey hues.  In its own jeweler's box, sitting upon a snow white cushion of non-reflective material, this large Cognac diamond definitely displays orangey hues which are generated strictly from internal coloration without any influence from warm external light sources.  Side views and tweezers views of the diamond also confirm this observation of a distinct influence from the orange region of the color wheel.  I have always personally liked this Autumnal color in diamond; something very rich and pleasing to view, especially when rotating the gem in the light.  These diamonds can literally appear to be on fire.

A very large Autumnal-colored diamond of a rich, golden hue that is even more magnificent in person.  I am certain most have never held a 5 plus Carat diamond, let alone such a large fancy colored diamond.  Would label the natural color of this diamond as a "Winter Wheat" with no lack of brilliance and scintillation bursting from the table and crown facets of the diamond.  ( The "blue" facet reflection is merely the separation of light into its components, diffraction, with blue being visible at this specific angle. )

A well-made diamond with Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry at the very clean Clarity level of VS2.  Five carat plus diamonds are extremely difficult to obtain, and usually sell for a much higher premium over smaller colored diamonds than the less than $9,000 per carat this diamond is going for.

Enough said ...... a collector's diamond if there ever was one.

Fancy Grayish BLUE 0.84 carat Cushion Mixed cut Internally Flawless GIA-certified Colored Diamond

The cut on this BLUE diamond is a combination of Cushion rounded corners and Square Radiant crown facets, quite interesting, unique, and attractive.  Most BLUE diamond have some element of Grayish hues mixed within, to give the resultant color that Steel Blue color of Excalibur sword.  The gray modifier color actually adds to the depth of color in this diamond, darkening the Blue inherent in the crystalline structure of the diamond and enriching the end Blue coloration.  For a Fancy color class, there is a lot of rich Blue color in the diamond.

Equally appealing, this BLUE diamond is Internally Flawless in Clarity.  Hardly ever happens when Mother Nature is adding various ingredients into the carbonic soup, that an inclusion or two inevitably does not get added along the way.  One could say that this diamond is clean as a whistle, but is, of course, much more intriguing than one.

I don't need a lot of verbiage in presenting this large Grayish BLUE diamond of IF Clarity and exquisite, unique facet design.  A picture is worth many thousand words.

An excellent way to acquire a Fancy BLUE diamond that has much more color than its color class of Fancy would suggest.  Round brilliant cuts in colored diamonds are rare in themselves due to the inherent facet pattern design intended to push as much white light through the table of the diamond as possible, maximizing brilliance and scintillation.  But this cutter took the locations of Blue in the rough diamond, and maximized both carat weight and color while still providing an exceptionally lively diamond that entertains the eye when rotated in natural light.

Side views or tweezer views are always telling in studying a particular colored diamond as they show true body color.  Lots and lots of Blue in this well-made colored diamond.

Blue diamonds of fine color and cut, we will call this a Sky Blue diamond, are very difficult to obtain in today's marketplace.  At less than $115,000 per carat, we find this specimen to offer high-quality at a reasonable price for an ALL BLUE diamond.  Worthy of a top-end colored diamond collection where the collector/ investor recognizes true value when he or she sees it.

Pricing in the colored diamond marketplace for predominantly ORANGE diamonds has been steadily rising over the last 7 years as more and more investors realize their true rarity.  While GIA is grading this exquisite diamond a Yellow Orange, this gem is on the borderline between this color grade and the Yellowish Orange color zone.  Based on the amount of saturation present in the diamond, one could argue that this diamond also approaches the Vivid or Deep level of color class, lots and lots of color for a mere Intense designation.  Very nice Orange diamond with a full GIA certificate that depicts a very well-made diamond with Very Good Polish and Good Symmetry that emits a strong Yellow color when illuminated with natural light's Ultra-Violet wavelengths.

Much to like in this colored diamond over 1 & 1/4 carats in weight that will soon find its way into a discerning collectors portfolio.

Gray diamonds remain an under-appreciated segment of the colored diamond market, and with or without secondary color modifiers, there are much fewer fine specimens as shown herein than most collectors/investors realize.  The significant amount of Blue coloration contained within the body of this rare colored diamond is best observed in the side or body view in the second, tweezers, image, and it is quite plain to all observers that Blue hues comprise some 20% to 30% of the total coloration of this fine diamond.  Cutters always have to make compromises in the manufacturer of a fancy colored diamond, and, in this case, some symmetry of shape had to be foregone in order to maximize table or top-down view coloration.  But once again it is all about color in these individually unique gems, and the cutter did a very fine job overall of producing a Blue Gray diamond full of brilliance and scintillation.

An exceptionally Rare colored diamond with not only BLUE as the predominant color, but the incorporation of the even rarer color of VIOLET as the secondary color modifier!  And with Argyle Provenance, what is not to like!!  Round brilliant cuts are normally not found in Fancy Colored Diamonds because the geometry of the facet patterns has been designed to maximize the amount of white light that is emitted from the Table/ Crown top of the diamond.  This characteristic would be detrimental to the presentation of overall color in a fancy colored diamond, but with a DEEP color class, this Violetish BLUE diamond is so saturated naturally that the Round cut only enhances the brilliance and scintillation of the finished diamond without compromising the color one iota.

This is the first colored diamond that I have seen with such a large amount of Violet hues complementing a body color of Angry Sky Blue.  Collectors will literally pay any asking price for such a unique and extremely rare diamond regardless of carat weight.  They just are so seldom found, even in the Argyle Mine.  This beautiful Blueberry just has to get some viewing time with some Asian buyers, and it is gone.  Investors in the East are all too familiar with currency debasement to virtually ZERO, so such rarities are being sought after today and large sums of U.S. Dollars are being exited to acquire similarly priced carbonic wonders.

Another heavily-in-demand color in diamond, Deep Pink adds depth and richer tone to this diamond which may possess some hints of purplish hues, not unexpected in a Pink diamond at this saturation level.  Round brilliant cut diamonds are always the rarest within a color class since the facet patterning was designed to maximize brilliance and scintillation in a colorless "white" diamond and would normally wash out the presence of color in a fancy colored diamond with weak saturation.  Not the case by a long shot here.  There are some Ruby Red colors to this Deep Pink diamond, and any owner of same will find that this diamond is much rarer than the price would imply, especially over a holding period of 7 to 10 years.  Buy before a fancy colored diamond appears on the cover of TIME magazine.

Buy before the average American investor realizes that fancy colored diamonds are a store of wealth in a country that is hell-bent on devaluing its own currency in order to attempt to pay off an Everest-topping mountain of debt that continues to push skyward minute by minute.  When a country buys its own debt with freshly printed Dollars to stay afloat, the subject currency, the U.S. Dollar, is destined for the trash heap of history as another failed experiment in fiat money.  Printing money has never created wealth in the history of the planet and in the history of mankind.

Pure as a Spring Daffodil is this Vivid Yellow, Canary colored diamond.  Yellow diamonds of very well-made proportions and very fine color still command high demand and prices in today's colored diamond market, and this is after over 15 years of increased awareness by the collecting/investing public of this segment of the rare diamond market.  Diamonds at this level of purity and saturation are dubbed Canary diamonds as they mimic the color of the rich feathers of this diminutive tropical bird.  Per GIA, this Saffron diamond possesses Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry, while fluorescing a Medium Blue hue under UV light, a normal occurrence for a diamond containing lots of Boron atoms. 

As confirmed by the side-view image above, this diamond is about as pure a Yellow as one can find without any inclusions on the table facet to distract the lucky viewer.  The very, very few inclusions in its carbonic structure occur along the crown facet and the normal angle of view for such a diamond makes them virtually invisible.  Too much is made of Clarity within the commercial market these days, especially for Yellow diamonds, and time will eventually adjust this pricing factor to the 4th or 5th level of consideration that it deserves in valuing these truly rare gems.  Color saturation always comes first in the valuation algorithm.

Would make a knock-out ring for that special someone.  Note that large fancy colored diamonds over 2 carats are in a class by themselves, and will be increasingly difficult to find as we move forward in the accelerating shift to tangible assets that retain value in a currency crisis and debt collapse.  Financial and real estate assets have once again entered bubble stages that central bank money printing have spawned and that any number of "pins" will prick any day now.  Follow the Chinese in getting out of Dollars; they have done much that is right in accumulating both Gold and Colored Diamonds over the last decade plus.  Always follow the smart money if you can.

Fancy Purplish RED 0.46 carat Radiant cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD
 


Only Purple and Violet come close to the rarity of a true Red diamond.  This Ruby Red or Strawberry Red diamond is very well-made with Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry, two results off the cutter's wheel that are not always obtained in colored diamonds.  And did I mention that most, by a fair margin, of RED diamonds are I1 or I2 in Clarity, certainly not close to SI1 as in this super RED wonder.  This diamond is very reasonably priced for a true Red diamond whose end, table view color has been fabulously enhanced through the art of skillful diamond cutting.

Since this diamond has Argyle Mine provenance with a girdle laser-inscribed Argyle control number, A78548, AND Mine documentation, one can see that the diamond obtained from a live Argyle Tender Auction was originally 51 points (and VS2 clarity, but this latter spec is open to discussion).  The astute observer can see that this diamond was re-cut after having been purchased at the Argyle Tender, a not uncommon practice in the trade, but only performed on less than say 5% of all fancy colored diamonds.  The diamond tradesman knew that he could improve the color saturation of the diamond, and HE CERTAINLY DID.

The result of this activity is a Ruby Red colored diamond, that while it now is less than 1/2 carat, by a smidgen, its color is richer and deeper than it was after originally being cut by Argyle, fresh from the Mine.  And with Excellent Polish and Very Good Symmetry, we also know that the end result is top-drawer!  Sir Stephen Hofer would call this geometrically-induced color, which happens to be the result from cutting with most fancy colored diamonds.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE SHERLOCK HOLMES TO APPRECIATE THE STUNNING RED COLOR AND ABSOLUTE PINNACLE OF RARITY WITH THIS FANCY COLORED DIAMOND.  Won't last long at this price.

Very difficult today to find Pink diamonds that are worthy of presentation to my existing and potential clients.  Many are of weak color saturation, poor tonal qualities, or so heavily included to include smatterings of white feathers and carbon spots that become the focus of the viewer's eyes instead of the richness of Pink color.  Just because the diamond popped out of the Argyle Mine does not mean that any mine cannot produce secondary or tertiary tier material.

While this Intense Pink diamond does have some inclusions scattered about a 30 degree angle close the the girdle facet on the crown facets, none of them distract from the overwhelmingly rich Pink coloration of the diamond.  Geometrical Symmetry is also only Fair per GIA on this diamond, a compromise often forced upon the cutter to produce as much depth of color as possible in the final product.  Hands down, the cutter did an excellent job in producing an Intense Pink diamond that contains many facets that actually contain Deep Pink hues.

While the Pink diamond segment of the fancy colored diamond market has had a tremendous run in price over the last decade, with an educated eye toward value AND beauty, one can still find a Pink or two that are not over-priced.  THIS IS ONE SUCH SPECIMEN OF PINK DIAMOND.

Fancy Dark Orangey Brown 2.81 carats Emerald cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

Wonderful "Cognac" diamond of well-above-average size!  It is somewhat of a surprise to dealers in the trade that these diamonds are becoming harder and harder to find.  However, Cognacs of 2 carats or larger have been difficult to source for the last 5 years.  Finding one of the rare Emerald cut that has this much coloration is even harder.  Emerald cuts always challenge the overall coloration of the cut diamond because the size of their mirror-like facets tend to reflect a lot of white light, possibly diluting color.  That is obviously not the case with this Cognac diamond.

A single image does not do this diamond justice.  If you held this Cognac in your hand and rotated it in natural light, you would discover how lively and brilliant the diamond really is.  The colors of Brown and Orange dominant, of course, but the diffraction of light would also create sparkles of yellowish hues that add to the mixture of pleasing colors.  An Autumnal Display if there ever was one.

I have been encouraging collectors and investors to seek out such high-grade Cognac diamonds for almost a decade now.  I still highly recommend their acquisition when one of such superb color and size comes upon the scene.

Harder and harder to find, the Pure Blue Diamond in the Vivid color class.  While prices have moved in similar fashion to Pink diamonds, Blue diamonds will always be rarer than Pinks and are expected to continue to do very well in price appreciation in the months and years ahead.  This is a very well-saturated Blue diamond and worthy of the most discriminating collection or portfolio.  At $200,000 per carat, this diamond is well-priced for its size, realizing that 1/2 carat plus Vivid Blues trade in the $500,000 to $800,000 per carat range.  We see fewer and fewer of these extremely rare diamonds, just below Violet and Purple levels of absolute rarity.  This Pure Blue diamond is without a hint of the normally occurring Gray modifier.  Arctic Sky Blue would be the common name I would place on this carbonic wonder, but you can put whatever moniker that you please in addition to the title of, "Extremely Rare Diamond".

One of my all-time favorite colors in diamond.  Few in the colored diamond world realize just how super-rare violet diamond really are, and this diamond contains an Argyle Laser Inscription in the girdle to ascertain pedigree, an added bonus to the fortunate buyer.  The abundance of Violet hues is plainly seen in the side-view above, while the introduction of Gray into the carbonic structure of the diamond adds richness and depth to the gem.  A violet diamond without some element of grayish tone to it would lack these tonal characteristics, and would appear pale indeed.

As a colored diamond broker for almost 12 years now, I know that steering buyers into particular classes of colored diamond can prove highly beneficial over time.  We have concentrated on the Violet, Purple, and Cognac color classes for at least the last 5 years, and our clients have been well served.  Those of us in the trade do have superior information on market trends, it is just a matter of conveying that information to prospects such that their overall experience with the purchase is enhanced.

While many in the trade would characterize this colored diamond as being a Champagne colored diamond, I have a hard time comparing the rich Brown and subdued Yellowish hues of this gem with the very pale bubbly stuff you imbibe mainly at New Year's.  Not technically a Cognac diamond due to the absence of orange in its color palette, this exceedingly LARGE diamond is still a very rare and collectible carbonic wonder.

Diamonds at the 5.00 and larger carat size are in a rarity class by themselves, and as I have found even as a well-connected colored diamond broker, they are extremely hard to find in today's marketplace.  So this diamond is in a niche not just based on its fine, well-blended coloration, but also based upon its very unique and large size.

This Autumnal diamond is an excellent addition to any tangible asset portfolio, and with rising popularity for Champagne diamonds, especially amongst high-end jewelers' clientele, one would be well-served over the next decade in owning this exquisite work of Nature.

A rich OLIVE colored diamond of large size and modest price, worthy of any portfolio or collection of note.  Based on the level of color saturation in the top-down or Table view of this diamond, I would say it tends more toward the Deep level of color class, especially given the tonal qualities of the Green within this very well-made diamond.  To have some much color in a Large colored diamond such as this gem, the cutter did a masterful job of maximizing both color and weight in the final product. Even the side-view or Body view of the diamond shows lots of color within.

The very high Clarity grade of VVS2 for this Olive diamond is another plus that will enhance the diamond's marketability in the year's ahead.

WOW!  An AQUAMARINE diamond if there ever was one, with uber-rare BLUE as the predominant color with a mild GREEN modifier; that is, Green is probably only 10% to 15% of the total coloration of this rare diamond.  While diminutive in size, this diamond is exceedingly rare because of its Green-Blue color.  Made in the most popular colored diamond cut, Radiant Brilliant, this diamond has excellent scintillation and liveliness without compromising the richness of color emanating from the diamond.  The radiant cut was designed for just this result.

There are certain color combination that make for very collectible diamonds, and Aquamarine is one of them.  One of the most saturated Green-Blue diamonds I have ever seen.  Pricing is most favorable, less than $235,000 per carat, when I have seen such diamonds with less saturation and price tags north of $300,000 per carat.

Great portfolio diamond for both a new investor/collector and an experienced one.
