Cool new parcel of Brown Diamonds
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:17:34 AM »
This is 37 stones that total 19.67cts- average about a half carat.
There's also a couple of 1carat stones in there somewhere....
Which I was just about to post when photobucket decided to go on vacation...ARGH!!
Anyway, they're rich and deeply colored yet with great "crystal".....they sparkle like crazy....
Photos to follow tomorrow hopefully.....

Nice group shots.

Sum ting wong:

WEIGHT: 1.04ct
MEASUREMENTS: 5.11 x 5.11 x 4.01 mm

and

WEIGHT: 1.00ct
MEASUREMENTS: 6.09 x 5.59 x 4.19 mm

cannot both be true. Unless the 1.00 has the largest cavity ever seen in a 1 carat diamond.

Enjoyed you post satbeachbill! Good pics, D. Great catch, OMC.

D, most that I see appear to be cushion shaped, however, do I spy a few straight-sided stones in the mix as well?

Good catch Trink!
There's a single Princess Cut in the mix...

The parcel also has a few choice 2ct stones! Amazing prices.

it's a very large Indian cutter - they approached us last week.
I said, "sure come on over and show me some stuff" when I got a solicitation from a salesman there.

The first batch of goods looked like dog $hit.

I DID NOT WRITE THAT- someone just took over my keyboard for a moment......

Anyway I explained that we were looking for less scatological diamonds. At that point, I honestly wrote them off- if the first parcel they showed me stunk, how good coudl it be after that....
So when they called yesterday, I was skeptical, but I invited them back up again.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!

The stones are bright, nicely made and remind me NOTHING of dog...well you know.....

This really has strengthened my desire to have a brown diamond.  I need a brown diamond gosh darn it!

Also among the spectacular new goodies we picked up:
A few choice 2 carat stones at killer prices.
The two I'm about to show you are almost polar opposites
Both are remarkably unique and special.






This first one is notable for it's deep color. WOW- it's almost ( dare I say) red looking at times.











This stone manages to kick back a lot of sparkle in spite of the syrupy thick color.
It is an I1 clarity, but you really need to have it in exactly the right lighting to see the imperfection. brown diamonds are not really subject to the same roles as any other cor in many ways, clarity is one.
The depth of color makes it very difficult to see the imperfections .
Cut is another area where brown diamonds sometimes "carve their own path".
There's a lot of reasons brown diamonds are generally cut diffeently than any other colored stone.
This stone does it's job admirably.
It's job, in this case doesn't include looking very large for a 2.11ct.
You can see this in the comparison photo.
This is all made up for in the price.

Gorgeous stone for special reasons


ITEM #: R6152
Cushion Cut Diamond, Loose

CENTER STONE:
  WEIGHT: 2.11ct
  QUANTITY: 1
  SHAPE: Cushion Cut
  COLOR: Fancy Deep Orangy Brown
  CLARITY: I1
  MEASUREMENTS: 7.29 x 6.85 x 4.98 mm
  TOTAL DEPTH: 72.7%
  FLUORESCENCE: FAINT


Price: $3695

This next 2ct brown diamond is special not only for it's color....It's also a special rock due to the amazing cutting style.
Small table, generous crown- an almost antique vibe.
The sweet color which is a lighter shade, allows for a ton of sparkle-
At times it's golden- other times a bit melon colored.
The lovely cut and sparkle keep your eyes coming back for more. The stone has a very nice size appearance for it's weight.
SI2 clarity- which you might be able to spot in the photos- but it's no detraction to the overall beauty or desirability of the stone.
Lets face it, it's one of the least costly 2ct fine diamonds on the market.
It does not look like it.
ITEM #: R6153
Cushion Cut Diamond, Loose

CENTER STONE:
  WEIGHT: 2.19ct
  QUANTITY: 1
  SHAPE: Cushion Cut
  COLOR: Fancy Yellow Brown
  CLARITY: SI2
  MEASUREMENTS: 7.49 x 7.29 x 4.71 mm
  TOTAL DEPTH: 64.6%
  FLUORESCENCE: MEDIUM BLUE


Price: $5395

I like 6153.  :-* I'd love to see it paired with colorless, antique-style rounds or cushions. RBs might work as well.

D, do you have some in the parcel that could work together as a big, five-stone brown and colorless band?

I had an idea that actually involved the whole parcel - or most of it anyway - but I don't have the pink hippos flying by anymore...

Just thinking of a something (could be a brooch, could be a pair of earrings) with alternate brown and white "squares" in a piece of "metal cloth" (meaning something that has a bit of a wavy surface, not totally straight). If done "cheaply", the whites could be polished metal (platinum or white gold), if done expensively, colourless diamonds.

I saw a brooch made with this technique using citrines and diamonds at a famed Brazilian gem dealer about 10 years ago, and the piece was absolutely gorgeous. It also required a swarm of pink hippos to fly by.

I LOVE OMCs description of a solid, wavy "metal cloth!" Earlier today, I was thinking cluster earrings. A mix of the browns with SMALLER whites. I had a square shape in mind, but couldn't quite resolve it. OMC's wave would work wonders for the design.

Also, I have some round ERs with centers of woven gold wire and little pearls. Something like that might work.

That's the idea, D. However, I'd need closer matches in terms of size and profile in order for it to work. Or maybe, brown cushion-white RB-brown-cushion-white RB-brown cushion ... Not sure. Although I keep trying to expand my horizon, generally, I prefer that type of band in all-rounds. Still I keep pushing my little envelope. Thanks for laying them out. :-*
