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.

Fancy INTENSE PINK 0.58 carat ASSCHER Cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond
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 WINE 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 Intense Pink diamond is a high-end Intense which borders on the Vivid level 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 Dark Brown 4.33 carat Square Radiant cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


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 ).

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.

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 Dark BLUE Gray 0.16 carat Pear Cut VVS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond


SOLD


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 ORANGE Brown, Giant COGNAC
SI1 

 


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.

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

SOLD


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 seldo
