Intense PURPLE PINK 1.12 carat Radiant Cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


This is very close to being a pure Purple diamond.  Images where the gem is held up to the light without even the faintest influence from a background color are usually quite revealing.  My eyeballs, that have seen many a natural colored diamond, are telling me that the predominant color in this diamond is Purple, not Pink.  In fact, this diamond is so full of pure Purple tones, that a Stephen Hofer colored diamond report could well grade this diamond as a Pinkish Purple; no guarantees, but well worth the cost with minor effort.  Were that to occur, and Pink is still a very, very rare color but not as rare as Purple, the value of the gem would more than double.  Astute collectors and even dealers should be looking at this gem for Upgrade potential.  Taking the process one step further, the depth of overall color or saturation level of this diamond also suggests to me that the gem is a borderline Vivid color or very high-end Intense at a minimum.  This is the type of gamble that stock investors seem to take every day with much less analysis and probability of success.  The odds here favor the Buyer.

INTENSE Green
VVS1, almost Internally Flawless


SOLD


A pure Green diamond, one of the 5 most rare colors bar none, very well-saturated, and with an exceptional Clarity grade of VVS1.  The diamond would be IF (Internally Flawless) if not for some very minute brown patches within one area of this masterpiece, totally expected in Green diamonds due to the process of formation.  The color of Green diamonds is created by radiation from the surrounding bedrock and soils over Millions of Years, so internally, it is striated grain lines that commingle to present the resultant Green color.  This is a high-end Intense Green which suggests above-average counts and tight bundling of these color lines, not often found.  Furthermore, the skilled cutter created a very well-made diamond to take full advantage of what Nature originally provided in the rough.  At $60,000 per carat, this Pure INTENSE GREEN diamond is a fraction of current market retail.  Sometimes there are very motivated sellers who are desperate to raise cash.  THEIR LOSS, YOUR GAIN.

SOLD


The color of fresh Raspberries comes to mind with this diamond.  Vivid colored diamonds are highly sought after by experienced collectors, and this predominantly Pink diamond has a very rich mixture of Purple hues blended throughout its crystalline structure.  Both Pink and Purple are rare colors in naturally formed diamonds, and the highly-saturated blending of both in this diamond fuse the perception of warmth (Pink) and coolness (Purple) in a single diamond.  This is an ideal diamond to represent the Pink color category in a budding collection, since many Pinks are found with Purplish hues anyway. Pure Pink diamond pricing is off the charts.  At $50,000 per carat for a Vivid Pink diamond with the complementary companion of Purple, this diamond is very favorably priced.  Likely of Argyle Mine origin due to this unique coloration and high level of saturation, this stunning gem will do very well in the years ahead.  Try finding one in a year or two!

SOLD


This "Peat Moss" coloration is very pleasing to the eye for any that have had the good fortune to view it first-hand in natural light.  With a preponderance of Greenish hues emanating from this well-cut diamond (even though GIA is grading it a predominantly Yellow diamond), the depth of overall color saturation provides a rare gem worthy of the most discerning collection.  Add to outstanding color the fact that this colored diamond can be acquired for a very modest price for an over-one-carat gem and you have winning combinations.  Would make a stellar center stone in a ring or merely occupy the first slot in a new colored diamond collection.  Sometimes, and this is one perfect example, the existence of secondary and even tertiary colors in a diamond provide a uniqueness of color presentation that cannot be duplicated in any precious or semi-precious gem.  Wonderful crown facet patterns.

This is an extremely rare color combination!  I am searching through my Aurora Collection common name references, and the best I can come up with is Deep Sea Ice.  Not only are two of the rarest colors incorporated into this stellar masterpiece of Nature, BLUE and GREEN, but the saturation level for the overall diamond is almost unheard of, DEEP.  Based on the GIA colored diamond naming methodology, Blue is the overwhelmingly dominant color in this very, very rare gem, but a pure Green secondary contributes around 30% of the mosaic composition to create a visual pleasure.  I can't wait to see the Stephen Hofer Colored Diamond Report on this diamond, since Stephen's expertise and enthusiasm are truly both informative and contagious.  A true collector's gem worthy of any Sultan's strongbox.

Very highly saturated Yellow diamond where the Greenish hues are readily apparent, but the Brownish designation given by GIA could be more the result of a Deep Yellow diamond "suggesting" it has brownish tinges.  If I were to dust off my old oil painting palette and mix black with yellow, there would be the perception of brown in the resulting mixed color.  Regardless whether the Roger Dangerfield of diamond colors, Brown, is present or not, this is an outstanding diamond with color off the charts.  The diamond's color palette literally jumps out at you, and in a piece of well-crafted jewelry, onlookers would have a hard time not staring.  Nicely over One Carat with very clean VS2 clarity and a price below $10,000, this well-made Round Brilliant cut has a lot to offer.

The expression, "Nice things come in little packages", comes firmly to mind when I view this diminutive, yet very rare Blue diamond.  As many of my "collector" clients have discovered over the years, there is nothing magic about having a fancy colored diamond collection that is all one carat size, say one carat.  In fact, the pricing structure of fancy colored diamonds in today's very strong market makes many gems over even 1/2 carat in the rarest colors of red, violet, purple, blue, and pink in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per carat!  Notice that I try to avoid use of the term, "stone", when referring to an exquisite crystalline "gem" work of Nature's art such as this "Steel Blue" diamond.  I have "stones" out in my yard at home, nothing particularly rare about them.  Just a quirky practice in the diamond trade.  Buy a very affordable, predominantly BLUE diamond that has more color saturation than many Intense and Vivid Blue diamonds that I have seen.  It is all about color in this surging tangible asset market.

SOLD


"Day-Glow" colored diamonds are becoming quite popular. I can think of no other gem that can possess this color palette and have that literal "glow in the dark" effect.  There is more Green influence in this diamond than presented in this image; Day-Glow diamonds can be a challenge to photograph because there is so much "play" of light and color.  Finding a colored diamond in a Round Brilliant Cut is always special, because most colored diamond rough does not allow this traditional cut due to the uneven distribution of color coming out of Terra Firma.  Every collection should have one or two colored diamonds that literally shout their colors and this is one fine example.  A statement is made by the juxtaposition of a "cool" color, Green, and a "warm" color, Yellow.  The very unusual color of this diamond is the key feature; I1 clarity means little to those "in-the-know" regarding colored diamonds (no distracting inclusions).  Very tiny white "cloud" that is not noticeable without magnification.

Rich, heavily-saturated "Daffodil" colored diamonds are still one of the most popular and affordable entries into this fascinating realm of very rare diamonds.  This diamond is much brighter and more lively than this image implies, but the Yellow saturation comes through faithfully.  2-dimensional images never do diamonds, especially colored diamonds justice.  A colored diamond is almost alive with color and varying flashes of same as you change your viewing angle and the location of the light source.  Maybe some day, brokers such as myself, will be able to provide streaming video of colored diamonds for sale, imparting a real life image of one of Nature's most beautiful creations.  This is definitely a high-end Intense Yellow, bordering on the Vivid level, thus granting it the "Canary Yellow" designation.  And almost 2 carats to boot!  And at only $6,000 per carat.

One magnificent fancy colored diamond with orange hues that glimmer throughout the classic emerald-cut facet patterns with wonderful scintillation and brilliance.   A large diamond by any measure, and, remarkably, one that is also exceptionally well-cut; the very skilled cutter achieved Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry in the final cut, a most difficult feat for such a large diamond, not to mention a colored diamond whose rough could have uneven color distribution before cutting.  Predominantly Brown diamonds are more common than most other colors of diamond, but one of this color combination and SIZE, is not common or plentiful by any means.  Would make a superb piece of jewelry that would be totally unique.  Members of the trade know superb fancy colored diamonds when they see them.  Now it's your chance to do likewise.  At $4,800 per carat, a very favorably priced rarity.

The marketplace is beginning to wake up to the fact that Yellow Orange and Yellowish Orange diamonds are great values with most of the same overall coloration of the highly-prized Pure Orange diamond.  I have come across only about 3 pure Orange diamonds in the last 5 years, and their prices were in the $100,000's per carat, as expected.  But a Yellow Orange diamond such as this very Orange beauty is a superb way to buy a predominantly Orange diamond.  Since Pure Orange diamonds fluoresce yellowish hues anyway when exposed to UV light or sunlight, there are going to be flashes of Yellow even within the top-tiered Orange classification.  And looking at the 52 point specimen above, one sees predominantly Orange coloration with flashes of Yellow merely interspersed in just a handful of facet areas.  Great color, great price, and great collector's diamond.  Never shy away from less than one carat fancy colored diamonds; it is truly all about color in this field of endeavor.

There is no sticker shock with the pricing on this very rare Pink diamond since the carat-size and clarity put it into a category all its own.  As I have said repeatedly, Clarity is a minor consideration when collecting colored diamonds, but the marketplace will reward any owner of an unusually clean colored diamond such as this at the Very Very Slightly Included 2 level.  Very few colorless diamonds reach this level of clarity and for a super-large PINK diamond to attain it, collectors and those in the trade know that the diamond is highly prized.  But since color is even more important, what do you think?!  This particular Pink diamond could be described as a Salmon Pink or a Shell Pink were the orangey flavoring is ever so subtle and the depth of overall coloration much richer than a Fancy designation would imply.  Noteworthy, very rare addition to anyone's portable wealth portfolio.  Kings and royalty have acquired these very exquisite gems over the centuries, knowing their true rarity and worth.

I feel like I am in the Olive groves of Italy, this superb Green diamond is so saturated.  It is a scientific fact that our visual senses are acutely tied to our sense of smell and taste.  Pretty unusual for Green to be the predominant color in any diamond, you can check this fact out.  The nicely blended secondary colors of Gray and Yellow provide the classic Olive color combination that makes this large gem such a versatile collector's or jewelry piece.  This is not a Chameleon diamond, so you don't have to worry about it morphing on you after taken out of the jewelry or safe-deposit box.  Would make quite a center gem in virtually any custom-designed work.  Well-made radiant brilliant cut of notable size and presentation.

Investors are going to find few secure alternatives in this new world of Credit/Debt Distress where financial assets can no longer be trusted.  Colored diamond sales are extremely strong this year, and expected to remain so for many years to come.  As an entry level color, Yellow remains very popular with all parties concerned, and as a gem gets to the highest level of color saturation without any darkening of the gem, Vivid, the color is even more prized by those in the know.  Large diamond, very affordable pricing, and knock-out depth of Lemon Yellow color ..... need I say more?!

Wine-colored Pink diamond that suggests many fruity flavors of colors similar to the varieties of red grape found in an Tuscany vineyard.  Because the gem has some slightly visible inclusions on the table area, it is given a significant pricing discount for a Deep Pink diamond.  However, it is still a deeply and richly saturated Pink diamond, with Orange a more rare secondary color modifier than Purple, AND for true collectors of colored diamonds it is all about Color, not Clarity.  Even the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian is heavily included, but who cares!  Some of the rarest colors in diamond are heavily included, Number One RED and Number Two PURPLE come to mind.  So you adjust your evaluation criteria away from the standards of colorless, white diamonds, and toward the reality of compromises in clarity, cut, and polish for the much, much rarer fancy colored diamonds.

This is a lot of Cherry Red diamond for the money.  Most natural Red diamonds have visible inclusions, it is just expected by experienced colored diamond collectors and dealers.  But where the inclusions are located has merit, and this diamond's surface "naturals" are located on the crown facets, not nearly as noticeable as if they were located on the table facet itself which is often the case with a Red diamond.  It is actually a plus that this Red diamond's GIA certificate is from 2004, because of late we have been finding several diamonds graded "Red" by GIA that were actually Deep Pinks when measured by Stephen Hofer using a colorimeter.  This truly Red diamond would be submitted to Mr. Hofer for one of his excellent colored diamond grading reports, just icing on the cake for an extremely aggressively ("cheap") priced Red diamond of over One Carat in size.  Even with a brownish secondary modifier, this diamond is at least $100,000 below retail value.  Won't last.

Brown seems to get no respect in the world of fancy colored diamonds, but Pink is toward the top of the rarity totem pole.  I will say it once more:  Buying a diamond with a brown modifier and Pink as the dominant color will prove to be a very wise decision in the years to come.  You get a heck of a deal in the cost per carat, yet as Pink rough production grinds to a halt from the Argyle Mine in Australia, buyers will no longer discount a Pink diamond with a brown modifier.  In fact, they will bid aggressively for the diamond since that may be the only Pink diamond available at any price.  Plus, this Wine color created by Mother Nature in blending Brown with Pink is quite appealing to any that have seen such a diamond.  The brown gives the diamond a richness it otherwise would not have.  Enough said.

For any of my clients and any frequent visitors to this website, the absolute rarity of Pure Orange diamonds is well-known.  This is only the second Pure Orange diamond my diamond sources have found in the last 3 years over which we have actively been seeking these gems for specific client requests.  Any yellow facet flashes that you see in this diamond is due to the Strong Yellow Fluorescence emitted as UV light enters the gem.  Flipping this ultra-rarity upside down so that the pavilion facets are pointing up, you would see how strictly Orange this diamond is, without any secondary color modifier.  Over the last 2 years, most colored diamond cutters and primary brokers have come to the realization that Pure Orange diamonds rarely come their way.  So now the word is out, and pricing is finally catching up to the reality of the less-than-minimal supply of these colored diamonds.  On a carat for carat basis, a pure Orange diamond gives a pure Blue diamond a run for the money, and the Orange is turning out to be a more rare, and, hence, more prized colored diamond to both collectors and investors.  Never just assume the obvious in the colored diamond trade.

This is probably the closest most of us will get to a diamond with Red or Reddish hues within it.  Although Brown is well known to be one of the most commonly found colors in diamonds, the combination with Red makes this a very, very rare diamond.  This is such a heavily saturated diamond, note the white background and suspended positioning of this image which helps to neutralize background color influences, I am a little puzzled why the diamond only received a Fancy color level from GIA versus an Intense or even Deep designation.  But the window that the cutter so skillfully crafted within this superbly rich "Chestnut" makes it known to all that view it that this diamond unquestionably has rare Reddish hues throughout.  A large fancy colored diamond with excellent depth of color and Reddish tones for less than $16,000 per carat, a head turning combination of qualities.  As I have said in the past, Brown diamonds seldom get the respect they deserve as true rarities in Nature.  This Reddish Brown diamond can command respect.

A literal cornucopia of color that is very pleasing in its composite presentation.  One really doesn't perceive the Deep color level from this diamond, but rather an almost Vivid saturation that is darkened by the introduction of Brownish hues.  If black were added to the color palate as evidenced by the resultant Pink coloration's tone, then the trained eye would consider this a Deep Pink diamond with two color modifiers.  This is a totally unique Colored Diamond in the way that the classic Round Brilliant cut works with the internal crystalline colors and literally throws them out at you from all angles.  As I have said before, acquiring an Orangey Pink diamond that has Brownish hues will prove to be a wise and very economical decision as the supply of virtually all predominantly Pink diamonds dwindle to very few new carats from Mother Earth in the years ahead.  Not to mention what this eye-clean beauty provides in visual entertainment: a color palette that seems to be alive.

Another very rare color that is seldom found in diamond, this "Amber" gem flashes some hints of yellow that is primarily due to the fluorescence characteristics of Orange diamonds.  Ultraviolet light causes Orange diamonds to emit a yellowish fluorescence so one cannot find even a "pure Orange" diamond without some suggestions of yellowish hues within the gem.  The cutter did a masterful job of creating this totally unique colored diamond in his modification of the traditional Heart Brilliant cut.  While the two lobes of the heart shape have been melded together in this exquisite work of art, the cutter totally maximized color saturation by doing so ...... yielding the DEEP color grade.  There are few Deep Orange diamonds available anywhere in the world.  Would make an outstanding pendant for that special someone.

Some very interesting color "perceptions" are occurring in the combination and strengths of colors in this diamond.  It is not very apparent that there is a lot of Brown in this diamond.  In fact, studying the color of the gem, one can deduce that there is really quite a contribution of Green to overall coloration.  This influence enriches the diamond's color to an extent that the GIA graders must have felt a degree of Brown was present to do so.  However, another expert observer could label this superb diamond a Green-Yellow since there is no doubt that there is substantially more Green present than Brown.  The effects of light, natural versus artificial, will also change the balance of colors perceived by the human eye within this rare Round Brilliant cut diamond.  Natural sunlight, with more wavelengths in the Yellow region, would necessarily emphasize the predominant Yellow color from within the gem; not to mention any Fluorescence in the Blue hue that combined with Yellow yields Green!  Any way you cut it, this is a wonderful fancy colored diamond at less than $7,500 per carat, a "steal" in my experience.

Comparing Pink diamonds side-by-side is very instructive in colored diamond collecting, because there are distinctly various nuances of "Pink" presented by these magnificently cut gems.  This diamond has a deeper, richer level of Pink than other Intense Pink diamonds, possibly due to some characteristics of the Deep level of color grade being present in the gem.  Different light "temperatures" and illumination strengths will change the perceived color depth of any colored diamond held in one's hand, and this very rare Pink diamond is no exception to this phenomenon.  There is no presence of brown in this purely Pink diamond, and the fact that no Orangey or Purplish modifiers exist either places the well-made diamond in a category of its own ...... extremely rare as an Argyle-sourced Pink and pure of single color.  True collector's fancy colored diamond at a very modest price per carat.

This predominantly PURPLE diamond presents itself to the trained eye more as a Fancy Purple diamond than as a Light Purple.  Most Purple diamonds, many from Russia, have a Pinkish modifier to them, but this is a very, very Purple diamond with a modicum of pinkish hues.  And one of the most rare colors on the planet, almost as rare as the vaulted Red diamond that also is usually heavily included in clarity.  A VS1 Clarity grade is almost unheard of in a predominantly Purple diamond, so this example of Nature's Carbonic Art is very rare on two counts.  Better make that 3x counts:  To find a Purple diamond in excess of TWO CARATS places this diamond on the Ultra-Rarity Scale for fancy colored diamonds.  $68,000 per carat is hardly expensive for a LARGE PURPLE diamond of exceptional Clarity; I have seen large Purples priced in the $100,000 per carat area for diamonds with this much color saturation.  TRUE COLLECTOR'S GEM.

Fancy VIVID Purplish PINK 0.65 carat Radiant Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


Considered a "large Pink diamond" by the gemologists/cutters at the Argyle Mine in Western Australia, this magnificent specimen will represent one of the last few Pink diamonds to come out of this primary source in the years ahead.  The invitation-only "sightings" of Argyle Pink diamonds have consistently shown a declining trend in Pink rough availability over the last 5 years.  We expect the 2008 sighting to be in the 2 to 3 carat total weight range, so one could do quite well in the very difficult financial period ahead by socking away several Pink diamonds.  My very well-connected sources also tell me that all of the most rare colored diamonds are becoming very difficult to obtain as more and more investors and collectors snap up these truly rare gems the moment they exit GIA with certificates.  In fact, many are being sold even before the GIA grading service has passed final judgment on the spectacular rarities; the cutters holding the newly-cut diamonds are usually so knowledgeable as to color determinations, that their word will sell the gems before the rest of the marketplace even has a chance to hear about their existences.  This Pink diamond, wonderfully laced with Purplish flashes is a lucky purchaser's few chances to have access to an Argyle Pink diamond, much less a large and Vivid one.

Fancy DEEP Brown Yellow 3.48 carat Round Cut SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


A large Fancy Colored Diamond where the palette mix of Brown and Yellow produces a rich "Marigold" color that is very appealing and chic; the human eye perceives Orange from this mix of colors, especially in a Deep color grade.  Based upon GIA color grading terminology, the total Brown component or influence is approximately 30% of the total in this diamond.  Visual observation supports this allocation.  The depth of overall coloration at the Deep level of saturation provides a richness of floral/autumnal colors in the rather rare Round Brilliant cut that is full of brilliance and fire.  Masterfully cut colored diamond that will not be around long.  Just barely the price of an automobile today, but an asset that will appreciate if history is any guide, not depreciate as do many acquisitions.  Stellar color combination.

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 PINK 0.40 carat Radiant Brilliant Cut GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


A pure Pink, Raspberry colored fancy-cut diamond for your consideration and approval.  At less than $32,000 per carat for an Intense Pink Argyle-sourced diamond, one could hardly go wrong with this selection.  In the most popular of brilliant cuts, Rectangular Radiant, this is a very marketable gem that will soon find a new home.  The overall coloration is so rich in this diamond that one could mistake it for a Vivid Pink.  Don't have to tell you what is happening to new supply coming from the Australian Argyle Mine ...... dwindling down to virtually nothing in the years ahead.  Nice size, super color, and very nice price.

Fancy Light GRAY 5.00 carat ROUND Brilliant Cut I1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond.
SOLD


Personally, I am somewhat enamored with Gray diamonds.  They are an absolute bargain per carat, and when they have hints of Blue and Green hues such as this very large 5 carat diamond has, they are particularly attractive.  I have started my own Gray diamond collection.  This is not the Graphite Gray that usually comes to mind with this "color", but a metallic gray that is suggested by many objects made of high-carbon steel.  These are very interesting diamonds when viewed in multiple light sources, and there is nothing dull or bland about their abilities to emit brilliance and scintillation as a highly-polished, finely-cut gem.  Totally unique and rare masterpiece from Mother Nature.  And at a size anyone can appreciate right out of the box.  Inclusions are not apparent in the top portion of the diamond as this image will attest to.
