  • Coloured Diamonds ~ Part 1

    The most popular colour of diamond to date is a diamond with no colour. This is the information sent out by millions of purchasers over the last decade in their choice of the colourless diamond for diamond engagement rings and other jewellery.  And this is a truism when referring to the white diamond.  However, there is a trend emerging of choosing fancy coloured diamonds for jewellery.  Much of this is celebrity driven, but My Diamonds would like to present a range of coloured diamonds for you to consider, and why they are the colour they are.

    Natural fancy coloured diamonds occur when various trace minerals and elements are present within the earth when the stones are formed.  The colour can range from pink to black - blue to yellow.  These stunning diamonds are often very expensive because of their rarity,  The Argyle Pink being one of the most famous.  Some of the most famous diamonds in the world are fancy coloured diamonds and below you will find some extra information on those colours and the famous stones known for each specific colour.

    THE BLACK DIAMOND ~ Minute inclusions and clustering of carbon through the stone render this exquisite gem black. Although they are opaque they still have a fantastic brilliance and display the amazing lustre that is almost unique to diamonds. The Black Star of Africa is the most famous black diamond, weighing a massive 202 carat and thought to be the largest coloured diamond in the world.

    PINK DIAMONDS ~ The colour pink is achieved as a result of a crystal lattice defect during the formation of the diamond giving the stone a soft pastel pink colour. The most famous of pink diamonds is the Agra diamond weighing 32.34 carats and is owned by the SIBA Corporation who also owns the yellow Allnatt diamond.

    BLUE DIAMONDS ~ The colour in a blue diamond is due to the element boron which changes the conductivity of the diamond. The most famous blue diamond and perhaps the most famous diamond of them all is the Hope Diamond which was cut from The French Blue Diamond when it was stolen in 1762. The Hope Diamond is now in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington where it has been on display since 1958.

  • Elle McPherson Engaged!

     

    It's official!  Elle McPherson is engaged to billionaire, Jeffrey Soffer.  The couple dated for two years up to March 2012 when they parted.  Soffer was subsequently very badly injured in a helicopter crash in November, after which the couple were reunited.  Of course, this means a sparkling diamond rock on Elle's model girl finger.  No official announcement has been made, yet rumour has it that the couple have decided to tie the knot.

    This will be the second marriage for McPherson, previously married to fashion photographer, Gilles Bensimmon.  Elle, one of Australia's most famous models, has recently been seen on TV screens in Britain and Ireland's TOP MODEL series, of which she is host and executive producer.

    No engagement diamond engagement ring photos yet, but we'll keep you posted as soon as what will no doubt be an exquisite ring, appears on the third finger of her left hand!
