The Rarest Diamonds Sold by Leibish & Co.
One of the many benefits of working for one of the premiere leaders in the Fancy Color Diamond industry is the opportunity to view some of the world’s rarest and most fantastic naturally produced stones. Although today these stones are made available even to the general public, many are not willing to pay the high prices since they can’t comprehend just how unique these diamonds really are. It is said that of 10,000 carats of colorless diamonds mined only one single carat qualifies as a Fancy Color Diamond. Of that small percentage of stones, producing colors like these is like finding a needle in an entire football field, while wearing a blindfold!

They were first offered to some of the collectors and diamond enthusiasts we have had the pleasure of dealing with over the years. Needless to say, they were happy to jump on the opportunity to be the proud new owner of these valuable, precious, investment worthy stones.
