Colored diamonds are a hot commodity right now, perhaps more than ever. We've often discussed them here on this site. From red diamonds to green diamonds to famous blue diamonds to orange diamonds to yellow diamonds found in Arkansas and even HPHT methods employed to create colored diamonds, we love colored diamonds.
In case you're short on ideas for what to give that special someone for Christmas or Hanukkah this year, world reknown London jeweler Leviev has a few beauties you might consider. It's a bit late in the game, but no doubt with a certified check, a wire transfer or a Black American Express Card the good people at the Bond Street location or on Madison Avenue can make your Christmas or Hanukkah wish come true.
Here are some of the very finest examples of colored diamonds available today, all from Leviev.
And won't it be fun when your vapid hostess compliments you and says, "I love that garnet. Look, Harry, a gar-net!" And you can say, "Darling, it's a marvelous, umm... garnet... yes." But you'll know what you have, and that's all that matters.
On this second night of Hanukkah, what better way to celebrate the Festival of Lights than with a little light of your own?
I suggest a Fancy Vivid Blue Internally Flawless heart-shaped diamond with two trillion-shaped pink side stones, set in Fancy Intense Pink diamond pavé. It's just the way to keep the oil burning for the next seven days, don't you think?
And what about those of us who love green things? This is a Fancy Deep Green radiant-cut diamond with two pink pear-shaped and two pink emerald-cut diamonds, set in pink diamond pavé, totalling 2.17 carats.
Perfect, I daresay, for heading south for Christmas with a suitcase full of Lilly prints and avoiding the crush of the malls and the fools and the gluttons and the restaurants with the 1.5 hour wait for cold food and the hustle and bustle and rudeness. Sigh.
