Natural Fancy Color Blue Diamonds

  • The principal mine producing Blue Diamonds, the Premier mine (formerly known as the Cullinan Mine), is past its peak production capacity. This has caused a significant decrease in the supply of Blue Diamonds, and a corresponding rise in demand.
  • Fancy Vivid and Fancy Deep Blue Diamonds are so rare they now regularly command seven figures per carat at auction, breaking records year after year.
  • In 2012, a 10.48-carat flawless Fancy Deep Blue Briolette Diamond sold at Sotheby’s Geneva for $10.86 million, or $1.03 million per carat, a new world record total price for a Fancy Deep Blue Diamond.
  • On April 24, 2013, a 5.3-carat Fancy Deep Blue Diamond sold for $9.6 million at Bonhams in London -- setting a record $1.8 million per-carat price for a Fancy Deep Blue.
  • The 45.52-carat Hope Diamond, arguably the most famous diamond in the world, is displayed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
