With the record breaking ‘Pink Star’ Diamond recently achieving the world wide highest auction selling price at $71 million dollars, coloured diamonds are increasingly being favoured as a unique and luxury choice. As Diamonds are the birthstone for April (Lucky you Aries and Taurus!) we take a look into the coloured varieties we have to offer at Owen & Robinson and the presence of coloured diamonds in the jewellery world.
The pink star is an impressive 59.60ct and oval cut, the vivid pink colour is extraordinarily rare and was out bid by Chinese jeweller Chow Thai Fook. The 2017 Sotheby’s auction took place in Hong Kong, the previous highest selling stone was the 14.62-carat Oppenheimer Blue, which reached $57.5 million at a Christie’s auction.

Unlike the GIA D-Z (colourless to light yellow) Diamond scale; Fancy Coloured Yellow Diamonds are graded outside this scale. To ensure the yellow colour is a true coloured Diamond the yellow colour must be more vivid than the ‘Z’ master stone.
Yellow diamonds appear yellow due the the increase of nitrogen present, the more nitrogen the more vivid the yellow. The scale of Fancy Yellow Diamonds ranges from; Fancy Light, Fancy, Fancy Dark, Fancy Deep, Fancy Intense, and Fancy Vivid.
