Leopards and diamonds? What has a big predatory cat got to do with diamonds? Nope, we are not talking about Cartier and their recent marketing campaigns. While doing a search on the behalf of one of our readers, I came across something really interesting at James Allen today.
Click this link to take a look at what I found:
In all honesty, I won’t call this a princess cut with top-of -the-line optics nor would I tell you that this diamond is eye clean. In fact, it isn’t even graded by GIA or AGS – this stone was graded by IGI as an I1. For most consumers, it probably isn’t the kind of diamond you would don on your wife’s finger.
But as a collector’s item, that’s a different story all together.
I love looking at diamonds and was initially drawn by the grayish blue tint this stone has. Upon closer inspection, I realized its intriguing inclusions pattern and the uncanny resemblance to a leopard skin pattern! How cool is that?
I’m sure the “leopard diamond” is gonna pull some heart strings.
As you can see, inclusions aren’t necessarily a bad thing. Even if you aren’t a collector, take a peek at this stone and enjoy a rare moment where the combination of Mother Nature and Man’s actions forge a delectable piece of art.
Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think of this special diamond.
