A RARE FANCY RED DIAMOND AND DIAMOND RING

彩紅色鑽石配鑽石戒指一枚


Centering a cushion-cut Fancy Red diamond weighing 1.38 carats, framed by round diamonds of pink hue, further decorated by square-cut diamonds, size 5¼.


Accompanied by GIA report no. 15712194 dated April 16, 2019 stating that the diamond is Fancy Red, Natural Color, SI2 clarity.

Please note that the diamonds of pink hue have not been tested for natural origin of color.


The color red has long symbolized passion, strength, courage and vibrancy, and in the case of this exceptional Fancy Red diamond, rarity. 


Red diamonds are the rarest and most valuable of diamonds of any color and may be one of the least understood stones in the world. Gemologists have debated for years as to what causes the intense color in a red diamond. It is not the presence of impurities like boron which is found in diamonds of blue hue, but it is thought to be caused by plastic deformation of the crystal structure of the diamond as it is exposed to extreme pressure during its travel to the surface of the earth. 


Diamonds with any amount of red hue represent approximately 0.01% of the diamonds unearthed historically and only a handful of those are over one carat. Few people will ever hold a red diamond in their hand, making it a rare privilege to offer this red diamond ring in our auction.
