  • A Diamond Planet ~ The Largest Precious Stone in the Galaxy?

    It's music to our ears.  There is  diamond rich planet, that astronomers are getting very excited about.  According to those that know, this new diamond planet orbits a nearby star.

    This exciting new planet has been named 55 Cancri e.  It is twice the size of our planet but has eight times its mass which classifies it as the new 'super Earth'.

    It was first discovered in 2011 when it crossed in front of its parent star, orbiting the star in just 18 hours.  Surface temperatures on 55 Cancri e reach an uninhabitable 3,900 degrees Fahrenheit (2,150 degrees Celsius)—which, along with the carbon deposits, make for perfect conditions in the creation of diamonds.

    The planet is only 40 light-years away, in the northern constellation Cancer, sitting relatively relatively near Earth. 55 Cancri e's host star is clearly visible to the naked eye when the sky is dark enough.

    "Science fiction has dreamed of diamond planets for many years, so it's amazing that we finally have evidence of its existence in the real universe," said study leader Nikku Madhusudhan, a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University.

    "It's the first time we know of such an exotic planet that we think was born mostly of carbon—which really makes this a fundamental game-changer in our understanding of what's possible in planetary chemistry."

    Now if you're of plundering this planet in the New Year, think again. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is responsible for collecting data on the planet and seemingly only interested in the scientific response around the world.

    Shame!

  • It's Nearly NEW YEAR at My Diamonds

    It's that time again ,when everyone is considering their New Year's Resolutions.  Of course, at My Diamonds, we would recommend that one of your resolutions should be to buy and wear as many diamonds as possible:Not only are they a good investment, but they look sensational.

    Market forces over the last two or three years have made the market place for diamonds difficult, which is no different to any other world commodity, but our long-term love affair with these fabulous precious gems has prevented them falling too low in the sparkling firmament.  Consumers are still buying diamonds because we love them.  2013 will still see plenty of diamond sales, due to the upsurge in engagements and weddings.  Celebrities too are doing their bit to buoy up the diamond market by publicizing their purchases of diamond engagement rings and diamond wedding bands.

    Although diamond prices have remained at historically elevated levels, in the first three months of the year diamond prices declined.  This proved to create stability in the diamond market, rather than some of the unprecedented highs shown in previous years records.  Certainly, the diamond industry was in much better shape than in the same months of 2011, so the outlook is set positive.

    Many retailers are bullish about the future of the industry, stating that the industry has met targets and looks set fair for 2013.

    Positive thinking seems to be the key.  The Diamond Jubilee in the UK saw many investors keen to be part of the celebration by purchasing high quality diamonds that will certainly retain their value. Prices are set to rise in 2013 so a purchase now could be pertinent.

    A major key to success is customer service.  The savvy purchaser knows that to succeed, higher quality diamonds is the way forward.  Many purchasers in the West prefer larger, less high quality stones.  A turnaround in this thinking could save the day and investors are certainly aware of this.  It's really up to diamond retailers to make sure their customer service is second to none.

    Go to the diamond collection pages of My Diamonds and choose your favourite design or favourite loose diamonds.  Contact My Diamonds and experience for yourself the high standard of customer service they offer.  It is second to none!

  • Most Expensive Diamonds ~ No. 1 ~ The Koh-i-Noor

    Understandably, the pinnacle of the list of the world's most expensive diamonds is the fabulous Koh-i-Noor, The Mountain of Light, a diamond so valuable a price will probably never be estimated for its financial worth.

    The diamond was once known as the largest diamond in the world, and is definitely considered by gemmologists as the most precious at 105.6 carats (21.6 grams)

    This stunning gem is said to have been discovered in the Andhra Pradesh Region of India, along with its double, the beautiful        Darya-ye-Noor - known as the Sea of Light

    The stone has belonged to various owners, Hindu, Rajput, Mughal, Iranian, Afghan, Sikkh and British rulers who fought over this fabulous gem which was often seized as a spoil of war.

    When Queen Victoria became the Empress of India, the Koh-i-Noor became part of the British Crown Jewels and is still owned by British Royal family, currently set in the Coronation Crown as seen below.
