The Peacock Diamond

The radiant-cut, 20.65 carat, Fancy Intense Yellow, IF clarity Peacock diamond was purchased by C.D. Peacock, one of Chicago's premier jewelry stores as a statement to the American public that fancy color diamonds have “arrived.” Putting his proverbial “money where his mouth is”, Peacock hoped to relay to Americans what their European counterparts have seemingly known for many decades about the attractiveness of fancy color diamonds.

 
The Peacock diamond was placed on a special mount made of platinum and 18K gold, flanked on either side by two triangular-cut colorless D-color (white) diamonds and displayed at C. D. Peacock, Northbrook Court, Chicago, together with other rare fancy colored diamonds and jewelry. It was hoped that this display would help educate the people of Chicago about fancy color diamonds.
