  • Don't know if you guys have seen this new Purple Orchid diamond released by Leibish & Co, but I think it is absolutely stunning. I have never seen a purple stone look so good in all my years working with diamonds. Apparently it is still available and valued at $4 Million. So whether it becomes famous really will depend on who buys it I guess.....

    What do you think?

  • Hello Internet Stones community,

    I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Avner and I am the CEO at Dianer Diamonds. For over 20 years myself and my amazing team of experts have been working on and perfecting diamond enhancement treatments. We now specialize in color enhancements, clarity enhancements and HPHT treated diamonds. I am very proud of the work that we do and the products that we produce. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about specific treatments or clarify any misconceptions you might have about enhanced diamonds.

    Looking forward to being a part of the community! :)

  • The use of plant and animal motifs in jewelry designs is an ancient historic theme, prevalent since the time of ancient Egyptians and Greeks, and used during the various jewelry periods in history, reaching its climax during the Art Nouveau period at the turn of the 20th century between 1890 to 1905, and continued to prevail well into the 20th century, with modern jewelry designers like Jean Schlumberger, Paulding Farnham and others elevating the art to sophisticated and refined levels, receiving international acclamation. At every public auction conducted by the leading auction houses such as Christie's and Sotheby's such jewelry pieces incorporating plant and animal motifs, had featured and performed impressively. Creating a thread to bring together such impressive pieces following the success of the Kashmir sapphire, Ceylon sapphire, and Alexandrite threads, occurred to me as a regular participant in updating the successful threads.

    Lot 8 - An Emerald and Diamond Flower Bracelet - though not a signed piece, registered a reasonable impact at the auctions, assigned a moderately high pre-sale estimate of US$13,579 - $18,106 and selling slightly above the upper estimate for US$18,198.
