Greetings to you all,
I am wondering if any among you have experience with unusual colored
diamonds. Recently I was sent some diamonds on memo which are quite
beautiful but they are off color. They have lab certs and one was
given an “x” rating for color and the other was “n”. They are fairly
large – 3 and 5 cts. I am not quite sure how to price them. I am
fairly familiar with pricing on diamonds in the more "desirable"
color range – these are definitely something different. In general I
really like diamonds that are different in various ways. I like
unusual shapes and cuts and I sell browns and also yellows both
natural and lab grown. So I am interested in developing this
direction and wondering about establishing a pricing guideline for
these stones. If any of you have experience with these kinds of
diamonds – diamonds that don’t look good on paper but are gorgeous
in the material world – I would greatly appreciate your input.
Please write me offline if you are uncomfortable discussing your
pricing strategy on the public forum.
Thank you for your far flung wealth of
