  • 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.

  • 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!

  • The 4Cs ~ The CLARITY of Your Diamond

    In most diamonds there are tiny imperfections - most of which are not obvious to the naked eye, but will be graded by Diamond Clarity Grading carried out by gemologists.  My Diamonds diamonds are graded by GIA or HRD, diamond grading laboratories that provide certification of quality for all of the diamonds My Diamonds offer their customers.

    The clarity grade is the number and size of these tiny imperfections, many of which can only be seen under a microscope, and will in no way affect the beauty of the diamond to the naked eye.

    Diamond laboratories will refer to the imperfections as inclusions, or blemishes.  If you're unsure about your chosen diamond, a My Diamonds professional diamond specialist is always on hand to guide you through diamond clarity grading.  Below is a diagram designed to explain how a diamond is graded:~

    THE 4CS ~ THE CLARITY OF YOUR DIAMOND

    Of course, those with an F - IF grading will be considered a much higher quality stone and therefore a customer will expect to pay more.  At the other end of the scale, an I1 - I3 grading will be a much more affordable stone.  The middle grades are more usual.  If you have any question about diamond clarity, please don't hesitate to call My Diamonds, one of Australia's foremost diamond retailers on 1300 55 66 20, where a diamond specialists will guide you to the diamond that's perfect for you.

  • Buying Your Precious Diamond On the Internet

    Having face to face contact with a company you're purchasing from is becoming less and less important with the dawning of a new customer - those who buy over the internet.  Our mothers and fathers and beyond, have had to join a revolution in buying and customer service. It would seem that retail outlets that we have come to know and love have accepted that many people prefer to sit in the comfort of their own homes and simply click to buy.

    In the beginning, we nervously stuck our toe in the water, buying books from Amazon, or gradually realising that there's no need to join the crush in the busy times at the supermarket.  We can simply order whatever we want online, and let other people pack and deliver for us.  Absolute bliss!

    In the 21st Century, we're now used to buying high end products on the internet, such as diamonds, diamond jewellery - diamond engagement rings and wedding bands.  This is because companies like My Diamonds, www.mydiamonds.com.au have realised it doesn't matter how your customer chooses their purchase, they still require the same, exemplary customer service they've been shown in the past.

    My Diamonds has flourished - using the internet to bring their diamond collections into the public consciousness, and are now one of the foremost diamond internet retailers in Australia.

    The most important point that most people will consider when buying over the internet is security.  Is it really secure for me to spend a not insubstantial amount of money with someone over the other side of the country, who I've never spoken to?  The answer, at least with My Diamonds is a resounding 'yes'!

    Once you've decided which exquisite diamond engagement ring you wish to purchase from My Diamonds, we advise you to read the diamond knowledge articles on the site, and on this, the My Diamonds blog.  It will cover points such as

    * Engagement ring guidance *Diamond related topics * Conflict Free Diamonds and the Kimberley Process * Custom Made Jewellery * and the My Diamonds 100% Guarantee of Excellence and Quality.
