Diamond mining companies are going to change their marketing strategies to promote mined diamonds aggressively since man-made diamonds are winning the jewelry market over. This is the idea of a diamond mining giant like De Beers as well as smaller producers of natural rough diamonds. De Beers only has 81 clients who are troubled by the issue of how to cope with man-made diamonds on the market of fine jewelry. So this is the problem for diamantaries for today.

Auction sale is the event where apart from exquisite lots, wealthy customers and skilled experts the records are set. We mean the record prices for diamond jewelry are set. The customers elegantly 'fight' for the right to own the lot on sale by raising the price to the amount other customers are incapable to pay. Christie's and Sotheby's auctions are world-known and most prestigious where apart from various pieces of art diamond jewelry is on sale, too. This is Christie's auction to take place on December 10 and this is Golconda diamond that is the star of the event.

It's not a deja vu, this is the question already asked by the International Gemological Institute experts about a year ago when they were given lots of undisclosed synthetic diamonds for grading. A number of gems was record – 600 items at a time. Before IGI dealt with synthetic diamonds but with no more than a couple of stones. Logically, the reaction to such a situation was too more fast and publicized. Even though there is a number of compact diamond detecting tools it's still impossible to differentiate synthetic diamonds from natural stones. They look identical.
It sounds like somebody marked that well and took advantage of top-notch quality of synthetic diamonds again! There are two victims this time: the Japanese diamond company and the Mumbai-based diamond trader. Both claimed to buy parcels of original polished diamonds but a half of them were detected as 'synthetic'. There is low chance a diamond detecting tool has been broken in both companies.

Once there was RyanLochte, the Olympic gold-winner in swimming, this time Katy Perry was spotted wearing precious grillz. The tendency is gaining momentum. But is it just a freaky thing of celebrity or do they know the real value of diamond encrusted grillz?

The last couple of years can justly called “Colored-diamonds fever” with investors, celebrities and common customers looking for diamond gems of exquisite colors. Their unique beauty is not the only reason for that and sky-high price tag is not an obstacle on the way of winning the bet. The thing is the price for colored diamonds grows from year to year, meaning after a year of admiration the owner of a one-of-a-kind diamond can yearn on it. Mostly pinks and blues are in the center of everyone's attention and anxiety, but this time this is “The orange” gem to fascinate the customers.
A beautiful pear-shaped diamond called “The Orange” after its sunshine color is graded vivid orange (it is a luck to find one), VS1, type IIa. It will be offered for sale on November 12 at Christie's auction, just about the same time as the highly talked about “Pink Star” will be offered for sale in Geneva.

The difference between the shop and auction sale is a price tag of the offered products. With the first it is fixed, while with the second it may skyrocket to unpredictable rates. The last is likely to happen this November during Sotheby's auction in Geneva. There is a 60-carat reason for that named the “Pink Star”.
A flawless huge (59.60 carats) vivid pink diamond is up for sale at Sotheby's in November with the starting price $60 million — the highest ever offered for a gemstone at the auction. This is one of the most rarest combination of diamond color and size what automatically ranks the Pink Star as the Earth's greatest natural treasure. The thing is, the majority of vivid pink diamonds weight not more than five carats, thus it make this giant off any scale.

There are many factors that make diamonds so talked about, like color, size, purity, brilliance, and many more. But this is also the price tag that turns any gem into a legendary jewel. With flawless diamonds the price breaks all limits exceeding tens of millions of dollars. That is why to satisfy everyone's curiosity we offer the list of five most expensive diamonds so far:
1 The Graff Pink, a fancy intense pink diamond, was named after its owner, the diamond dealer Laurence Graff. This is a 24.78-carat round-cornered rectangular step-cut diamond. Evidently the buyer knew the real value of the stone since he overpaid $19 million of the minimal estimated price. The diamond mounted in a ring was expected to fetch between $27 million to $38 million, however Laurence Graff parted with $46 million for the opportunity to be the sole owner of the most expensive single jewel on the planet named after him.

Diamond experts never stop speaking about rarity of fancy colored diamonds. Blues are sure among the most deficient diamonds, that is why when the record price is concerned they are on the top of the list. However, a large number of zeros in a price tag is not a stumbling block for celebrities who like to dazzle their fancy colored diamond jewelry in the limelight. This time the blue diamond jewel that is offered for sale is going to fetch $9.8 million.
