Famous diamonds – the Golden Eye Diamond

The Golden Eye diamond is a canary yellow fancy intensive diamond with a weight of 43.5 carats or 8.7 grams. It is believed to be one of the most famous diamonds worldwide because of its cut and colour.

The gemstone is originated from the Kimberly area in South Africa, one of the most valued mining areas. After it was found, it remained uncut for thousands of years. Fascinated by the mystery of the diamond, a group of collectors acquired it a few years ago in South Africa.

After the Steinmetz Group finished the cut of the diamond in New York, the Gemological Institute of America rated it as an absolutely internally flawless,  fancy intensive yellow diamond, which is very unique! The Golden Eye is ranked among the top twelve diamonds in the world because of its purity and colour. Such rare coloured diamonds are unmatched in their beauty and value for investors. Only one in every 10 000 diamonds is a fancy coloured diamond. Far fewer naturally mined diamonds are considered to be fancy intensive yellow.

The fancy coloured diamonds are graded according there colour intensity: faint, very light, light, fancy light, fancy, fancy intensive, fancy vivid, fancy dark and fancy deep.
