Colored Diamonds / Re: Auction prices
« Last post by basuja on November 06, 2016, 09:57:18 PM »
Hi All,

I've finally decided to sell my collection after  20 years.  A collection of 13 plus pieces of argyle pink and white diamond jewelry.

I've completed valuations last year from IGL but I understand these valuations to be rather conservative.  How best can I set my expectation on sell price ? I want to be realistic on market value since I dont want my emotional attachment to this colection to play a part in my decision.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Danny

When I argued with my friend about the "harm" of natural diamonds I found this curious article.
And I guess it's worth reading for everybody who is interested in diamonds or whose friends or lovers still think diamond mining is a cruel tning

I haven't made any decisions as of yet on Sunny.  I worry I won't wear her as much but we'll see. 

I definitely won't be doing anything until spring of next year.  That will give me time to think about it all and see what I do wear.

Yay for small hands, but that would look pretty big on any hands. It's a lovely stone. Congratulations again!

(I would not touch Sunny - get something else with colourless Asschers; go all steps with this one:



or keep a mix of faceting styles with this one:



or anything else that catches your fancy (!), but that ring is a masterpiece and should be treated as such, IMHO)

Here is one more picture I took with a cell phone after my hands cooled off (they were red and swollen from washing dishes prior - sans ring of course).  Once I am done putting together things for a fall festival I am chairing, I will have more time to take pictures I hope :)

The link to the pear stats was too hidden, my mistake

R7325  It's a .75ct H I1 vintage style pear.  I can see the open culet at some angles even set.  Love how it gets the pastel colors in dim lighting like my Yoram OMB does.  I have been wanting to collect different diamond shapes and when this one came in, it did steal my heart. I've had the band for a long time and wanted this style to go with it so I would be able to wear it more often. 

Total carat weight of the ring is 'only' 1.23ct and set in platinum.  I say it like that because many people say it looks much larger on my hand.  The halo is about 9 x 13 mm total and the pear did face up larger for its size too.  Yay for little fingers, right?

Really this would have been quite an economical engagement ring for someone (stone was $1595 and setting just about the same price) especially considering the physical presence.  I intended it to be my spare but now I seem to wear it all the time.  Considering resetting Sunny into a 3 stone with colorless asschers or something.

Earlier this year, a friend of mine got engaged.  We helped her pick the right pear shape halo ring.  I spent more time looking at pear halos because of her.  Then a client of ours asked for an all yellow pear halo and when it came in and I tried it on, I swooned.

Now I have a yellow and actually do not have as many colorless diamonds.  I also had a diamond band that was just aching for a similar ring to go with it, so I went with all yellow. 

We started this this beauty - vintage style pear



It turned into this massive gorgeous ring (worn with my existing band)
