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.

Vivid Purplish Pink 0.16 Marquise cut SI1 Colored Diamond, Side View

SOLD


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.

Fancy Grayish Yellowish GREEN 2.88 carat Cushion cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


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.

Deep Brownish Orangey Yellow 4.54 carat Round SI1 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

Deep Brownish Orange 4.54 carat SI1 GIA Colored Diamond, Side View

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.

SOLD


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.

Fancy Gray GREEN 3.14 carat Radiant-Cushion cut VS2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

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.

Fancy Purplish RED 1.00 carat Heart Brilliant cut SI2 GIA-certified Colored Diamond

SOLD


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.

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 a
