  • THE HISTORY OF DIAMONDS

    Diamonds are much treasured and have a very important place in the gemological history of the world.  Battles have been fought over them, human beings have killed and died for them.  They have been used as love tokens for centuries, and as a method of exquisite adornment.

    The word 'diamond' is derived from the Ancient Greek word 'adamas' meaning unalterable and unbreakable.  The very first diamonds were discovered as alluvial deposits in India, along the Godovari, Penner and Kirisha ivers.  It is possible that diamonds have been accessible in India for up to 6000 years.  The formation of a diamond deep within the earth requires very specific conditions - exposure of materials containing carbon to extremely high pressure and at considerable depth.

    Diamonds as Adornment                                                                                    The use of diamonds as gems for adornment dates back to antiquity.  The 20th Century has seen a raised interest in this fabulous mineral, primarily because of it's expensive appearance when set in precious metals.  The diamonds characteristics mean that the dispersal of white light throughout the stone results in scintillation and spectacular colours.  No other gem can display these characteristics in this way.

    Experts in gemology have now devised a method of grading diamonds using certain comparable characteristics.  The four most important ones are knows as the 4Cs, which stands for cut, colour, clarity and carat.

    These grading methods are carried out by globally recognised laboratories such as GIA and HRD.  It is recognised that the diamond is the hardest substance known to man.  Because of this characteristic,it is particularly suited to use as gemstones.  Many engagement rings or wedding rings must stand up to daily use and all the wear and tear that brings.

    Coloured Diamonds                                                                                           Although our first thought of colour when considering a diamond will probably be white or clear, there are beautiful ranges of fancy coloured diamonds.  These begin at the yellow, pink and red spectrum, through blue and green, purple, brown and the very popular and fashionable black.  These colours are caused by impurities within the stone - nitrogen for yellow and brown, boron for blue, and for black, carbon inclusions.

    Blood Diamonds                                                                                               Over time, these precious gems have unfortunately been bought and sold to raise funds to finance wars.  In areas of Africa it has been documented that some military factions have taken over complete mines and forced the workers there to continue supplying them with diamonds, so that they can be sold on the black market.  The money raised is then used to purchase weapons and fund military coups.

    A Rising Star in the Diamond Firmament                                                       When choosing your diamond for your engagement ring, you should ensure that you purchase it from a reputable diamond retailer/wholesaler such as MY Diamonds.  Call them now on 1300 66 55 20 and speak with a professional diamond specialist for the diamond of your dreams.

  • Sale of Ellendale Diamonds ~ 18th June

    On Tuesday the 18th June, the sale of the Ellendale Diamonds will begin.  Tens of thousands of rough diamonds from the Ellendale Mine, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia will be sold in an auction conducted over the internet.  This is surely a sign of the technological times we live in. There will be 34 lots in all, containing more than 30,000 stones.  Hope you've got deep pockets!

    Harvested at Ellendale by KDC, the diamonds in the auction are mostly white stones and fancy yellows.  This is to be expected as the mine supplies about half of all yellow gems sold globally. At the previous Ellendale diamond auction, demand exceeded supply resulting in the sale of all the lots offered.  eDiamond will be auctioning nearly three times the amount sold at that time.

    Two viewings will be conducted in anticipation of the auction: one in Tel Aviv, beginning today and continuing until Wednesday, and one in Antwerp, beginning on Friday and continuing until the day before the sale. Diamonds will always be good investments and diamond jewellery never fails to hit the spot as gifts for our loved ones.  For really eclectic designs and quality craftsmanship, view the designs and loose diamonds on offer at www.mydiamonds.com.au   Every piece has been designed in-house and My Diamonds offers a bespoke engagement ring design service second to none.  Call 1300-66-55-20 and speak with a My Diamonds diamond specialist.

  • Breaking News of the sale of the Rio Tinto Diamond Mine

    As reported previously Rio Tinto plans to sell its world-wide diamond mines, yet news has it that the suggested float of the company has become firmer in recent days.

    One of the interested parties has confirmed that its interests lie only in the DIAVIK DIAMOND MINE, in Canada's Northwest Territories. Canada's Dominion Diamond Corporation, a partner with Rio Tinto in Diavik, and holding just 40%, have stated that they wish to purchase the 60% stake that Rio Tinto have in the mine and no more, as the Argyle mines in Australia, 'are just too distant for a company of its size to consider.'  Dominion recently became 'top-dog' of the Canadian diamond industry, after acquiring BHP Billiton's 80% stake in the Ekati diamond mine, also in the Northwest Territories.

    Diavik Mine ~ Northwest Territory of Canada

    Bob Gannicott, Chairman and Chief Executive of Dominion said that Dominion are entirely focussed on the Northwest Territory of Canada, being a place they know and understand.  Nevertheless, Rio is keeping its options open.  The preferred option would be to sell the company in its entirety, but would certainly consider fragmenting the business if sale of the parts brings a greater return.  Watch this space for more news of the sale of the iconic Rio Tinto mines!

    And don't forget you can purchase your fabulous diamond from My Diamonds at a price easily affordable.  Look out for new designs from My Diamonds artisan jewellers such as The Blossom and The Delfina.  Look below for a tempting glimpse!

  • 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!
