Orange Diamonds!- Sell Jewelry

In the past I have blogged about the different natural colored diamonds that are both extremely rare and valuable: red diamonds, pink diamonds and yellow canary diamonds! I have yet to cover the extraordinary and equally rare orange diamond.  Orange diamonds occur naturally by the presence of nitrogen and carbon lattice. All orange colored diamonds with a high intensity grade (Fancy Intense Orange and Fancy Vivid Orange) are extremely rare as the majority of orange diamonds have a yellow, pink or brown hue. Orange diamonds are so rare that most jewelers will likely never see one in person or own one. I for one have seen many diamonds come through Raymond Lee Jewelers but I have unfortunately never seen a orange diamond; out of all the colored diamonds, to me the orange is the most beautiful. To give you an example of how rare orange diamonds are out of the 100 largest diamonds in the world only one is orange. Sell Jewelry.

The most famous orange diamond is the Fancy Vivid Orange Pumpkin Diamond mined in Central Africa Republic and then imported into South Africa. The Pumpkin Diamond measured 5.54 carats and is light colored and very intense. It is currently valued at $3 million and was eventually purchased by Harry Winston who set it in a ring between two white diamonds. It was notably worn by Halle Berry for the 2002 Oscars when she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Monster’s Ball.

In October a 7.5 carat orange diamond was found in South Africa’s Northwest Province. What makes this orange diamond even more spectacular is the fact that it has flawless potential which raises its value considerably. The current owner is Namakwa Diamonds which has mining operations in Lesotho, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Namibia. Raymond Lee Jewelers may not have any orange diamonds at the moment but we do have fancy yellow, beautiful white and even a watch studded with black diamonds!
