The undisputed champion of the diamond industry goes to the De Beers family. They have been mining diamonds in South Africa for one hundred and thirteen years [113]. De Beers produced eighty percent [80%] of the world’s rough diamond supply. He had a legal monopoly in the unregulated diamond industry. It took the United States over one century to finally file charges against the De Beers empire and succeeded in breaking up his diamond monopoly in federal court.

In 2001, after one hundred and thirteen years, the De Beers mining company was

taken private. They divested mining holdings and stream-lined the entire operation to include only the most valuable South African mines that produced the highest quality diamonds. These mines were located in Namiba and their favorite in Botswana. The Botswana is the richest and produces forty million carats [40mm] annually of the highest grade premium diamonds of any mine on earth.

De Beers micro-managed the diamond industry before going private. He spent two hundred million [200mm] in advertsing and required his diamond distributors to match his diamond advertising budget for a grand total of four hundred million [400mm] yearly. This large advertising budget was successful in promoting diamond sales for decades..De Beers created the most famous ad in advertising history..It’s slogan was “Diamonds are a girls best friend.”

When De Beers controlled eighty percent of the world’s diamonds, he would manipulate market supply resulting in a predictable diamond appreciation annually. This micro-managed style gave stability to the diamond industry with continuous diamond appreciation over the decades. But after De Beers went private and his control of diamonds dwindled to less than forty percent [40%] of the world supply, shortages of rough diamonds to meet demand started driving up prices. Before the diamond shortage, De Beers was able to effect an average annual diamond appreciation of fifteen percent [15%] for decades.

As you see the diamonds graded with a [VVS1] or [VS1] clarity and [D] or[ E] color were a good long term investment strategy. Currently with a rough diamond mining shortage, prices for finished diamond jewelry is projected to go up fifty percent [50%] by the year 2015! Thus; flawless grade diamonds and hybrid simulated “Sona Diamonds,” will become a very attractive and profitable investment.

The Sona Israel Gemological Institute created their first man made diamond in [2004] that was not CZ or cubic zirconia based. It was a Sona “Hybrid Diamond Simulant,” made from diamond crystals and sapphires using shared science in the fields of composite and fusion technology. Since it’s release, the Sona Diamond has appreciated twenty five percent [25%] in value annually, and is projected to grow at this rate of return for the next decade to meet consumer demand. http://www.sonadiamondjewelry.com

The blue diamond is like a beautiful bright stone. Natural fancy blue diamonds are particularly exceptional, classy, and are one of the most desired colors in diamonds.

Natural blue diamonds are so uncommon that most jewelers have never even seen one. In recent years, methods of producing strongly colored diamonds that includes fancy blue, have been developed. It is believed that the process probably recreates the conditions, which existed millions of years ago to produce natural fancy colored stones. The action can only work with small alternative diamonds, and it basically involves irradiating them and causing the color change. It is usually followed by heat treatment to even out the color. The blue diamonds that are currently available are either enhanced or treated. When people consider buying loose blue diamonds, it is advisable for them to keep in mind the fact that all blue diamond have been enhanced by faceting, and most colored gemstones are heat-treated to enhance their color.

These loose blue diamonds that are available are mostly used to make stunning rings. In recent times, it is not easy to find enhanced diamonds. It is very rare that people will find these blue diamonds in a jeweler’s shops. People investing in these blue diamonds consider them to be a lifetime investment.

Fancy blue diamonds are more expensive than ordinary near-colorless ones. The processing adds to the costs, so it is generally only worth treating diamonds of high clarity. The diamonds selected for treatment usually start off with one of the less desirable colors such as brown or yellow. There is no certainty about the final color that any particular stone will be after treatment

Online sites are available that give information about the various colors in diamonds. People who are interested can also order for them online after researching all the facts and features.

Is deep purple the rarest of natural colored diamonds?

I am aware that red and green are at the top of rarity when discussing fancy natural color diamonds . But what about a deep royal purple .?

Fine pure red diamonds are by far the rarest in nature. The largest recorded is the Moussaieff Diamond which weighs 5.11 cts. and was cut from an 11 ct. rough stone from Brazil by William Goldberg Diamond Corp. in the form of a Trilliant. The finest colour red diamond is simply known as The Red Diamond. It is a 5.04 ct. emerald cut stone of the most magnificent blood red colour. It is lucky to be in existence as it was found inside a 33 ct.piece of black bort rough which was bought for $160 for crushing into polishing powder but the owner, Mr. Houtakker sent it to Amsterdam for cutting out of curiosity after a comment made by Sir Ernest Oppenheimer aroused his interest – a very lucky move!!
Purple diamonds are very rare and the colour is never good, at best it is purplish red, grey or pink. These comments only apply to NATURAL, UNTREATED diamonds and not lab created stones which are being turned out in an amazing range of colours.

The phrase ‘too good to be true’ can be applied to everything in life, including diamond jewelry. If you find a cheap engagement ring or bridal ring, or see signs for wholesale diamond rings, be sure that the seller isn’t cutting their price by cutting quality. While there are exclusive retailers who can offer you genuine designer diamond rings and other natural diamond jewelry at a great price, many offer low prices because they are using enhanced diamonds.

Unlike high quality natural diamonds, enhanced diamonds are inferior stones that have been artificially treated to hide cracks, repair ugly inclusions and improve their color. These treatments are unnerving by any standard and include laser drilling and boiling in sulfuric acid to remove black or dirty inclusions, exposure to radiation to enhance or change the stone’s color, placing the diamond in extreme heat and pressure to improve clarity, using a sealant to hid cracks and pits in the diamond, and being coated with a substance to add a reflective effect.

While all of these treatments can result in a gemstone that is cheaper than a natural diamond, don’t be fooled. Enhanced diamonds cost less because they are lower quality, and therefore less valuable. In fact, there is heated debate in the jewelry industry about the use of treatments to enhance diamonds, as it can make stones difficult to grade and certify accurately.

Under US law, all enhanced diamonds must be declared and sold as such. One of the most common practices to enhance diamonds that must be declared is laser drilling to dissolve inclusions to improve clarity. These holes are clearly visible under a jeweler’s microscope and it is debated whether or not this process damages the integrity of stone.

The GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is the leading organization in studying and grading diamonds and all other gemstones, and they also require that all diamonds that have been laser drilled must be disclosed as enhanced. When buying diamond jewelry make sure it comes with a clear appraisal that discloses full information about each stone.

If clear information about stone enhancements is not immediately available, or a customer service rep does not want to talk about this process openly then walk away and look elsewhere for a natural, high quality diamond.

Unfortunately, just because a diamond has not been laser drilled does not mean that it hasn’t been subjected to other enhancement treatments such as a being boiled in sulfuric acid. Most inferior stones actually have fractures that extend to the surface from inclusions deep in the stone that allow the acid to travel into the inclusion without holes being bored.

Would you consider buying a diamond ring if you knew the diamond had been immersed in sulfuric acid? Or buy a diamond bracelet that had been exposed to radiation? Would you buy any kind of gemstone jewelry that you knew had cracks that had to be filled with a sealant?

The GIA has announced that new treatments to artificially enhance diamonds are being developed all the time, making it more difficult for customers to identify and buy a genuine, natural diamond. They have reported finding diamonds being sold with “an uneven texture with abundant fractures” and “unevenness in their color”[1] although they couldn’t identify what techniques had been used to treat the stone. Another report noted that High Press/ Heat Treated (HPHT) annealing of diamonds is “one of the most serious challenges the diamond industry has ever faced”[2]

This worrying trend makes it even more important to only buy diamond jewelry from a source that you trust, and who are dedicated to only creating designer diamond jewelry using the highest quality, natural diamonds. Look for sites that advertise that they don’t use enhanced diamonds, and have clear certification for all of their diamond jewelry from

While enhancements may not be visible to the naked eye, they will certainly be visible to a trained jeweler or appraiser. While you may not be immediately concerned about the resale price of your diamond bracelet, engagement ring or gold diamond ring, any valuable piece of diamond jewelry is an investment in the future, and you will certainly want to make sure that any jewelry passed down from generation to generation is the highest value that it can be.

Yes, diamonds have a natural property called fluoresence. Usually its blue but can also be yellow.

If you are concerned they could be fake, fluoresence, or the lack thereof, is not a reliable indicator. Get them checked out by a certified gemmologist.

Total Carat Weight : .50

the color means light brown, diamonds can have a yellow or brown color (compared to colorless) tone

steel grey hot is not a denomination a serious gemological lab would use

the normal color scale for diamonds is D to Z and then Fancy colors.
