Deep Brown Yellow 2.10 carat Modified Radiant VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


The incorporation of Brown in a predominantly Yellow diamond gives the carbonic wonder a golden glow that is very rich and appealing.  Add in a Deep color saturation level, and you have a very strong gem that is not going to be washed out by any strong light source.  This Goldenrod diamond sports a modified radiant cut where the crown facets have curved bottoms that give this colored diamond not only a unique color play with light, but a most interesting physical shape.  Modified brilliant cuts are the norm, not the exception, on the wheels of colored diamond cutters, so realize that with most of the colored diamonds that you purchase, you will own a truly unique and valuable gem.  And likely of a unique color as well.  Perfect color to bring in the late days of Autumn, but even when the chilling winds of Winter blow, this diamond will maintain its sunny disposition.  Nice large diamond at less than $10,000 per carat.

It is almost as if many collectors and those in the trade have been reading WCM diamond descriptions, but both Yellow and Yellowish Orange diamonds have become increasingly in demand.  It partially stems from the trade realization that these very Orange diamonds are more rare than first expected; it also stems from collectors' realizations that the price of a Pure Orange diamond is usually out of reach for the vast majority of souls and many diamonds such as the Orange beauty above is more than an ample substitute at a fraction of the price.  Mark my words, and some obviously have already done so, Yellow-Orange and Yellowish Orange colored diamonds are going to continue to experience rising prices in the years ahead.  This diamond has a wonderful Marigold coloration evenly distributed throughout the gem.  Will sell for significantly more this time next year as global Dollar holders rush to convert to timeless tangible assets with a global marketplace.

VIVID PINK 0.80 carat Oval Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


One of the undoubtedly most spectacular and extremely rare colored diamonds one can ever hope to come across ......... A Natural Fancy VIVID PINK Diamond.  This diamond fluoresces Bluish hues under UV light excitation, so what you think you are seeing as Purplish hues (this is truly a Pure Pink!!  Hofer could verify once studied), is really the combined light-waves of Blue and Light Red, also known as Pink.  Color science is quite a fascinating endeavor (quite technical, but rewarding), and if one remembers his or her Physics 101 coursework, Blue and Red combine to produce Purple.  As time progresses in the study of Fancy Colored Diamonds, more and more members of the trade will employ scientific explanations to clients and prospects pertaining to visual perceptions of specific gems offered for sale.  A standard Daylight lighting may eventually be adopted for trade imaging of these exquisite, but "tough to capture in so many pixels" rarities.  Fluorescence characteristics of a gem can definitely affect visual color perceptions.  DID I MENTION THAT THIS VIVID PINK IS A STEAL AT $160,000 PER CARAT!  Could easily retail for $30,000 to $40,000 more for this Raspberry Wonder.

It has certainly begun to catch on that Orange diamonds, even with a modest secondary color such as a Yellowish hue, are exceptionally RARE.  As I have noted on these pages previously and copiously, most colored diamonds that appear to be totally Orange, in fact, do have some yellowish tinges to them, due to fluorescent under UV light if nothing else.  This is an outstanding example of an Orange diamond where the influence of Yellow is very modest and almost an Orangey Yellow at that.  These particular fancy colored diamonds are going to do very well into the future, as they have done in price appreciation over the last 3 years.  This class of colored diamond, Orange or Yellowish Orange, have gained in price some 70% over this very short time period.  No reason to believe, especially with a failing global financial system with uncontrolled inflation, that this very rare specimen of diamond will not do equally well going forward.  PORTABLE, TANGIBLE WEALTH that is very easy to transport from country to country.

When you find a fancy colored diamond in a round brilliant cut, think very earnestly about buying it.  Round cut diamonds in fancy colors are very difficult to obtain.  This specimen, so heavily saturated with Raspberry colors, that the trained eye has to consider the diamond a borderline Vivid color grade!  The cutter did a splendid job of lengthening the distances within the gem from the internal pavilion to crown to table facets in order to absorb as much white light as possible, thereby maximizing the color depth of the gem's inherent body color.  In fact, the table's border with the crown region is so saturated, one gets the impression that he or she is seeing some Red in this diamond.  Superb and very rare example of a Pink diamond and a nice size that is not carrying a hefty price tag for such a rarity.  Acquire a rare Pink of size while they are still affordable.

Fancy DEEP Yellow-Brown 1.10 carat Emerald Cut SI GIA-certified Colored Diamond
SOLD


This "Marigold" colored diamond combines Yellow and Brown hues in such a manner that one thinks he or she is viewing an Orange diamond.  Skillfully cut, this diamond still achieved a Deep tonal level even with the large, light-reflecting facets of an Emerald cut.  You know that the rough diamond had to be very clean for the cutter to select this facet pattern, and it almost looks like Mother Nature used Windex on these superb crystalline mirrors.  This outstanding colored diamond would make a knock-out center gem for a man's ring or a lady's brooch for that matter.  As my clients already know I have no hesitation in recommending Brown diamonds for their collections, because I feel the market is missing the very fact that these are still very rare diamonds.  And in combinations of Yellow and Orange, they mimic the hues of an idyllic October woods.

Excellently well-matched pair of one-carat plus "Cognac" diamonds that would make a knock-out pair of Tiffany-style earrings.  Although the 1.04 carat Orange diamond has a flavoring of yellow hues within (diamond on the left), the diffraction of light within its sister diamond, the 1.02 carat, also produces yellowish hints although the diamond is technically a Brown Orange diamond.  Once the twins are separated by the proud wearer's lovely face, any ever-so-slight differences in appearance between the two Brown(ish) Orange diamonds melt away into a vision of pure elegance and a unique fashion statement.  A pear-cut colorless or yellow diamond could be crafted to hang effortlessly below these Orange globes to give the earring even more panache, uniqueness, and flare.  Cognac diamonds are very easy to work with in jewelry design since they are very complimentary to all skin tones.  Still favorably priced in today's very hot colored diamond market.

Having been in a multitude of military facilities over the years, Walter Reed Army Medical Center for one, I have come in contact with a lot of camouflage patterns.  That is what this color reminds me of, one of the darker, European forest patterns often worn by U.S. soldiers stationed in Germany, etc.  Wonderful combination of forest flora colors, Brown, Green, and a very subdued Yellow due to the Dark color level for this diamond.  This could be a montage of colors for the Black Forest of Bavaria.  Green diamonds are rare, no question, while Green diamonds with Brown and Yellow components are less rare, but still at least 1000 times more rare than a similar White/Colorless diamond.  Round cuts are seldom seen in fancy colored diamonds, and when found, are certainly a collector's item.  Unique color for that special someone or collection or piece of custom jewelry.  Very clean fancy colored diamond for a work of Mother Nature.

VIVID "Canary" YELLOW

SOLD


A true "Canary Yellow" diamond of significant size and modest price.  Pure Yellow stills remains one of the most popular and affordable Colored Diamond categories, and have sold very well in 2008 when the U.S. economy shows all signs of recession.  Investors and collectors are effectively converting their depreciating Dollars for a tangible, portable asset that has proven its ability to maintain purchasing power over hundreds and hundreds of years.  This diamond was imaged in artificial light, which somewhat subdues the fire, brilliance, and scintillation of a Canary Yellow diamond.  A 2-carat Yellow diamond is going to be increasingly difficult to obtain due to surging demand in the years ahead.  The public has literally woken up to the value of fancy colored diamonds as a means to protecting one's hard-earned wealth.  A Vivid color level makes this gem even more desirable and, of course, rare.  Well-made diamond.

Intense Blue 0.32 carat Pear Cut SI1 Colored Diamond
SOLD

 
A classically cut, highly-saturated INTENSE BLUE diamond of "Sky Blue" color utilizing the Old Mine cut that was extremely popular in Europe in the 1800's and early 1900's.  When it comes to the rarest of colored diamond colors, Blue, it is always about the even distribution of color in the cut gem and accompanying brilliance/scintillation, not about the technical aspects of the facet patterns themselves.  Colored diamond cuts are always a compromise in actuality since skillfully executed modifications to a standard brilliant cut for any shape of diamond are regularly made to maximize the color through the table and off-axis crown views.  And one has to marvel at the end-product off the cutter's wheel for this Intense Blue diamond that has color regions that hint at the Vivid level of saturation.  Size means little to true collectors of these ultra-rare gems, and to attempt to purchase Intense Blue diamonds at one-half carat or more requires several more trips to the bank.  Exceptional fancy colored diamond.

This is hardly a dull fancy colored diamond.
What is singularly most interesting about Dark Colored Diamonds is that they are full of fire and scintillation when rotated in either natural or artificial light such as a fluorescent bulb.  Images are basically two-dimensional, a real pity when it comes to attempting to convey the "play with light" that a natural diamond provides when in one's possession.  As shown by the crown facet areas off from the top/table facet, this diamond is imbibed with a plethora of Orange and Orangey hues that create the classic "Cognac" presentation in diamond.  I would label this diamond "Cognac Chocolate" due to its rather rare depth of color, reminding one of a favorite chocolate tidbit that melts in your mouth.  Don't try to eat this gem; much better to adorn your personage with it!  I1 clarity means little in such a Dark Chocolate gem.  Dark Chocolate with Cognac filling, of course.

Ah, Mother Nature did us a big favor by introducing brownish hues into the crystalline structure of this very large, 3 carat plus, PINK diamond.  Graded a Fancy color level by GIA, this gem's overall Orangey Pink coloration is more in the Intense saturation level by any measure.  The trade is still discounting Pink diamonds with brownish hues, but this incorrect pricing action will not persist in the years ahead as Argyle Mine production grinds down to a minimal number of Pink diamonds/carats being extracted in future years.  Not many large-sized Pink diamonds around the market today, and if one does pop out of a cutter's hand, it is snapped up very quickly, Chinese and Middle Eastern buyers often at the front of the line.  Misconceptions on rarity caused by prejudices at the retail level create buying opportunities for astute collectors and investors.  This diamond is a prime example of same.  Very well-made colored diamond with Very Good Polish and Very Good Symmetry, a feat seldom possible in these very rare gems.

GREEN diamonds are exceedingly rare, ultra-rare in fact, rarer than Blue & Pink.  And to have the rare color of Blue skillfully blended within this predominantly GREEN diamond, Mother Nature was in a very good mood when she created this fancy colored diamond.  The resultant Teal color is very attractive and many colored diamond collectors would find this unique gem as a welcome and powerful addition to their collection.  Once again, the WCM colored diamond hounds have searched for the most rare hues and come up with a classic color combination.  Usually green diamonds are modified or have secondary yellow colorations, so a blue combination with the Ultra-Rare GREEN is unusual in itself.  And it is all about color in fancy colored diamonds.  Favorably priced Green diamond with unusually high clarity.

Even some of today's experienced diamond dealers do not realize how exceptionally rare a pure Vivid Green diamond is.  And one that has nary a hint of yellowish hues within its crystalline structure and is devoid of visible inclusions such as this SI1 Clarity diamond is literally worthy of the "ultra-rare" moniker.  We have been actively searching for Vivid Green diamonds for well over 2 years now, but we have found few candidates as strong in its qualities and pureness of Green color as this "Clover Green" diamond.  I can attest to the fact that many of the Green colored diamonds that we have come across in the Vivid color category have been priced higher than this splendid specimen; and even some of these examples had ever so slight hints of yellowish tones.  At the top tier of fancy colored diamond colors, a Vivid Green diamond is a keystone gem to any colored diamond collection.

This is the same color combination as the Hope Diamond in the Smithsonian in Washington, but this diamond has been graded at the Fancy level of color saturation, not the Deep Grayish Blue of the Hope.  This "Steel Blue" diamond has a tremendous amount of Blue facet flashes, so one has to wonder out loud whether this diamond may in fact be a borderline Intense Blue at the low end of that next saturation zone.  In any case, it is an exceptionally fine and rare specimen of the Blue color found in diamond, and worthy of the finest, most discriminating collections.  Radiant cuts were developed especially for colored diamond rough, and the cutter did an excellent job of maximizing the presentation of Blue in the face up or table up view of this diamond.  Very difficult to find Blue diamonds with such outstanding clarity in the One Carat Plus weight category.  Perfect for the investor / collector trying to get out of Dollars, U.S. banks, and even U.S. money markets.

The veritable top of the rarity scale in fancy colored diamond, a Purplish RED diamond.  This Red has already been analyzed by Stephen Hofer as being a true Red diamond, not a Deep Pink which is often mis-graded as a Red by GIA.  So we have already taken this 30% possibility out of the transaction by getting a Hofer Colored Diamond Report from the unquestioned top expert in this field.  Many investors around the globe are frantically converting Dollars into tangible assets since the Dollar is being created in the Trillions literally by the week in Washington.  Fancy colored diamonds have done very well in 2008, partially for this very reason of being a store of wealth over the millennia.  As U.S. obligations explode and flood the world with paper promises, even the most expensive and most rare fancy colored diamonds will continue to be acquired since there will be no lack of liquidity available to do so in smart money hands.  Safer than Dollars in a U.S. bank.  A true "Ruby" Red diamond.

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

One of the most rare colors found in Natural Colored Diamonds, PURE BLUE, is exceedingly difficult to find in carat weights greater than one half carat ( 50 points ).  Not to mention that this diamond possesses a "Sky Blue" or "Bachelor's Button" level of saturation that purports itself very well in this tweezer-shot image; note how white light is flooding the back of the diamond, yet the color remains very rich.  This method of photographing colored diamonds shows to the world the level of color saturation in a diamond.  Accordingly, there is no doubt that this is a singular color Blue diamond as well as a high-end Intense level of saturation.  In addition, nary an inclusion to be see at SI2 eye-clean clarity. At just over $135,000 per carat for an Intense Pure Blue diamond, this very rare gem is aggressively priced .......... I have seen more than not $200k plus prices on diamonds at this saturation level and size.  The world is turning to put Billions of Dollars into hard assets and increasingly is jettisoning the world of securitized, financial assets that are literally rotting on the vine today.  These Pure Blue diamonds have held their values for centuries.  The same cannot be said of currencies, stocks, or bonds of now questionable issuers.  I will take Rock over Paper any day.

Both seasoned colored diamond collectors and astute tangible asset investors are catching on to the fact that pure Orange diamonds are exceedingly rare.  Given the GIA grade on this boldly colored diamond of Yellow-ORANGE, the proportion of Orange to the total coloration presented to the viewer via the table-up position is in the region of 70%.   This implies that Yellow composes some 30% of the total color presentation of the gem, but since the diamond fluoresces a Medium Yellow hue with UV stimulation (i.e., exposure to sunlight for example), one has to review the table-down coloration of the gem in artificial, low UV lighting to perceive just how Orange this diamond really is.  And indeed, it is a very, very Orange diamond.  Not a pure Orange, granted, or the price would be multiples of the very reasonable current asking price.  Buy an Orange diamond while they are still available.  Everyone in the trade is surprised by how prices have moved on these predominantly Orange diamonds in the last 18 months.  I suspect that they will move much higher due to their true rarity in the years ahead.

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