A Rainbow of Colored Diamonds at Heritage’s Fine Jewelry Auction

Sept. 25 Beverly Hills sale features rainbow of colored diamonds as well as vast selection of colorless diamonds

Fancy Blue Diamond Ring
DALLAS, Texas (August 10, 2017) — The legendary Hope Diamond, the Dresden Green and Hancock Red exemplify the breathless beauty found deep in the earth's crust. These coveted gems are symbols of power and wealth, romance and intrigue. Heritage Auctions is celebrating colored diamonds on Sept. 25 with its Beverly Hills Fine Jewelry auction. A collection of the extraordinary diamonds offered will tour the country showing off their rainbow hues and mystic beauty in Dallas, New York and Beverly Hills beginning Sept. 7 in Dallas.

An exceedingly rare 3.23-carat Fancy Blue Diamond, Diamond, Platinum Ring (est. $900,000-1,200,000) is worth noting with its mesmerizing hue. Rarely encountered, this Fancy Blue Diamond is fashioned into a lovely cushion-shape.

"No two diamonds are alike and all collectors would agree that natural fancy blue diamonds, although possessing the same grade, can be vastly different. You have to see this beautiful gem in person to truly appreciate it," said Gina D'Onofrio, Heritage Auctions director of Fine Jewelry, Beverly Hills. "This collection of colored and colorless diamonds is a rarity for a September auction and it is presents a unique opportunity for savvy collectors."

Also featured are a 5.04-carat Fancy Intense Purplish-Pink Diamond, Ring (est. $100,000-150,000), a 7.48-carat rectangular brilliant-cut Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond, White Gold Ring (est. $40,000-70,000) and a 10.45-carat Fancy Yellow oval-shaped Ring (est. $40-000-70,000) and a matched pair of Fancy Yellow Diamond earrings (est. $25,000-35,000) with a total weight of over 6.00 carats.

No auction would be complete without a vast selection of colorless diamonds to complement the bouquet of colors already mentioned. Heritage Auctions is offering diamonds ranging from 1.00 carat to over 6.00 carats, including a gorgeous 6.23-carat pear-shaped white diamond.

The national tour of diamonds will commence with a reception preview in Dallas, Sept. 7, followed by a full preview Sept. 8-9. The second stop in New York City will feature a full preview Sept. 14-15 before the tour concludes with a full preview in Beverly Hills, Sept. 22-25.
