Even though diamonds are prized as the quintessential colourless stone, they’re also found in a variety of different colours such as blue, pink, yellow diamonds. In fact, South Africa is home to some of the rarest and most valuable natural fancy colour diamonds in the world.
A diamond is truly a remarkable piece of nature. Not only does a diamond represent a lifetime of love and devotion, but it also has a unique colour, which symbolises a special meaning. In nature diamonds are found in various shades of colour such as bright yellow, alluring blue, enchanting green and the rarest of them all, red diamonds.
One of the most important characteristics of a diamond is the cut. The cut of a diamond determines the fire, brilliance and scintillation of the gemstone. If, a diamond is cut incorrectly it will result in a dull and muted appearance. When cut to perfect proportion and symmetry, a diamond will radiate a brilliance second to none.
It’s hard to forget the glance of a beautiful diamond, especially in some of Hollywood’s most memorable and famous movie scenes. In most of the cases, the striking diamond is what made the scene so unforgettable and spectacular.
