Organized in partnership with L.J. West Diamonds of New York, the exhibition will shed light on the rare properties of colored gemstones, the science behind natural colored diamonds,  and how the interplay of light and chemistry gives diamonds color.

The Juliet Pink Diamond

One of the stars of the exhibition, the Juliet Pink Diamond is an extremely rare 30.03-carat Fancy Intense Pink diamond. Its large size, Fancy Intense color grade, and clarity grade (lack of inclusions) contribute to its rarity.

According to Scott West, Vice President of L. J. West, the Juliet Pink Diamond is similar in size and color to the Princie Diamond, which sold for a world-record price at auction in 2013.

“Since that time, no such rare Fancy Intense Pink diamond has appeared, other than the Juliet Pink,” said Mr. West. “It was named for the rare love and beauty evoked by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.”

In the exhibit the Juliet Pink Fake Hermes Leather Bracelet Diamond is set in a necklace with Marquise, Pear-shaped and Round-cut white diamonds totaling 98.70 carats.

The Argyle Violet Diamond

The Argyle Violet Diamond was named by the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia, where it was discovered in 2018. At 2.83-carats, the Fancy Deep Grayish Bluish Violet diamond is among the rarest diamonds ever found.

Largely due to its unique color grading of Fancy Deep Grayish Bluish Violet, the Argyle Violet served as one of the hero stones of the 2018 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, a “by invitation only” annual sale of rare pink, red and blue diamonds from the Argyle Diamond Mine.

The Rainbow Diamond Necklace

This multicolored necklace features more than 100 rare natural color diamonds from the vast color spectrum, with a total weight of 35.93 carats. The Rainbow Necklace replica Trinity de Cartier earrings features Radiant-cut stones set in 18K white gold. According to Mr. West, it took more than five years to source and assemble all the diamonds of similar shape and size.

The Victorian Orchid Vivid Purple Diamond

Because of its unusual color, The Victorian Orchid is one of the rarest stones in the world. The 1.64-carat Cushion-cut Fancy Vivid Purple diamond has an SI2 clarity grade, and is set in a platinum flower-style ring.
