Yoo Hoooo David
« on: January 25, 2008, 05:47:49 PM »
Ok David go have a search around your office and throw us a nice new piece of bling we haven`t seen before or a huge rock so we can dream about it, imagine how we`d set it or wear it or wish we could afford it.
Some of our new members will enjoy the diamond fest  ;D
Baggsy I the first 2ct diamond under $100 lol  >:D

Alright!  I'll pick up that gauntlet


Let's play a little game, then, shall we?
Assume this diamond is about 1 carat.
What's the color?
What's the price?

Nice find!  ;D

I'd have to say it might have brown, but it's such a rich color it's gotta be above the 20K range.

I'll go for Fancy Deep Brownish Pink too - OK  I take that 70K thing back - I bet it is around 20K.

Interesting disparity.

ace is very perceptiive in that anytime there's any pink in a diamond, $20,000 is likely to be sales tax.

But there is no "red" on the GIA grade for this one- otherwise ace's guess would be pretty close.
In this case, he's gone a bit over the top.....

OH man!!!

before I read others' replies, I would say it's a fancy brownish orange with pink of some sort? Yeah, that color won't be on a GIA report, but that's what my eyes see!

seriously it looks red to me!  ;D

let me take a second guess...  i just can't seem to see brown in there...  maybe it is a Fancy Intense Orangy Pink for around 50k-60k tag...  whatever the color is it's gotta be at least 50k...  the hue and saturation are amazing!  :o

Hmm.  I was basing my price tag on the 1.01 fancy light orangy pink David has now.  That one is just around $20K, and I figured this has more color, if there is brown it would take the price tag down more than orange would. Um, $40,000?

To my eye there appears to have some blue in it--almost a dusky red-violet color.
I'm saying 68K

 :omg:  That stone is spectacular.

It looks like the color of some grapefruit or perhaps even salmon.  I'm guessing around $85k.

We`ve had every colour combination and I`d say no differently either. I see brown/orange/pink and sparks of red in there.
Fabulous looking diamond.
As for it`s cost, umm $45k ? No doubt I`ll be wayyyyyyy out ...
Imagine what you could do with a stone such as that, a real treat.
Yep it also reminds me of those " Blush " grapefruits you can buy.
I wish  had the problem of wondering how to set it  ::)

Ok, the price question BETTER not be a trick question!!!! You know what I mean?? Is there a chance this baby has some undertone making it more reasonable? IF SO? I CALL IT!!! :)

Drats, I'm off to do errands, but I can't wait to find out!

Gorgeous!   Fancy Deep Pinkish Brown.   Under a carat and the fact that it has brown..... I am guessing $30- 50K?? ;D

My guess:
Fancy intense pink. 
1ct=$29000-$35000 depending on the clarity.

Interesting...
again a wide disparity in responses. 
My guess:
Fancy intense pink. 
1ct=$29000-$35000 depending on the clarity.
I think you left off a zero.
A nice-looking fancy intense pink one carat diamond can't be anything less than $150,000 or so.  Of course for these prices we're talking GIA graded.


A few people use the word "deep"-they were on the right track

Did anyone guess correctly on the color yet?  The problem guessing price is we have no idea what the clarity is.   I am sticking with Fancy Deep Brownish Pink or Fancy Deep Pinkish Brown.  Probably the latter.
