The Leibish Pink Promise

It is not often that a large, extremely rare natural fancy colored diamond makes its way into the market. However, when one does it attracts a lot of attention, and the 'Leibish Pink Promise' has most definitely made quite a splash. Countless memorable and unique color diamonds have come through the doors of LEIBISH and have been sold to many content buyers. However, this stone is in a league of its own.

The Leibish Pink Promise, originally a 4.96-carat in the rough, which was found in the KAO mine in South Africa, has been transformed into a phenomenal 2.02-carat Fancy Vivid Purplish Pink Cushion-shaped diamond.

There are several factors that contribute to the uniqueness of this gem. To begin, the pink beauty displays a remarkable color; found in very few color diamonds in the world. Secondly, though it has been cut down from its original rough size, it still remains a significantly sized diamond, especially for its color. An additional rare attribute is the fact that the Leibish Pink Promise was discovered in the KAO mine and not the Argyle mine where over 90% of the natural Pink diamonds in the market are found.

Won and purchased in November 2012 at the Fusion Tender in Antwerp by LEIBISH’s GIA graduate gemologist chief diamond buyer, Shmulik Polnauer, the diamond was initially going to be given the round or heart shape. However, after much consideration, since the goal was to keep the best quality and the largest size, it was decided to go with the cushion shape. In the words of Shmulik Polnauer “This diamond is of the finest bubble gum color, with some fresh reddish flashes in the face up. It compares well with a Vivid Purplish Pink from Argyle in its body color and luster. We spent over four months assessing and then polishing this 4.96-carat rough pink diamond. We saw an enormous amount of potential and wanted to ensure the world appreciates the outcome.”

Available for purchase as of now, the diamond is expected to attract buyers looking for unique pieces as well as quite a few investors interested in rare stones with the potential to appreciate in value over time.

LEIBISH carries a large selection of color diamonds, including an impressive collection of Argyle Pink Diamonds. In fact, the company was the proud winner of seventeen Argyle Pink Tender Diamonds in 2012, six Argyle Pink Tender Diamonds in 2011, six Argyle Pink Tender Diamonds in 2010, and one Argyle Pink Tender Diamond in 2009. Argyle diamods is a prestigious name in the Pink diamond industry, but any natural Pink diamond deserves the attention of collector's, diamond enthusiests, and investors searching for the perfect diamonds to add to their portfolio. LEIBISH is proud and lucky to have acquired such significant stones to add to its collections.
