Though colourless diamonds, reign supreme as a symbol of glamour and prestige, history is rich with legendary coloured diamonds. Among them, the Tiffany Yellow Diamond, the Moussaief Red Diamond, the Darya-i Noor Pink Diamond, the Dresden Green Diamond, the contentious Koh-i Noor Diamond and the Blue Hope Diamond whose replica was famously featured in the movie Titanic.
There has traditionally been a romance associated with coloured diamonds because the exact circumstances that form them are so uncommon that their natural occurrence seems like an impossibility. Occurring in shades of gray, blue, yellow, orange, red, green, pink, purple, brown, and even black, coloured diamonds constantly break records at auction houses around the world.
Over the last few years natural coloured diamonds have caught up with their colourless counterparts in terms of popularity because of the influence and patronage of international celebrities who sport these beauties in engagement rings, on red carpets or simply to complement their daily looks.
Classified by their shade and intensity, coloured diamonds are typically set in a metal that will enhance their hue. Abaran, one of India’s most trusted jewellery houses, presents Oriana, a large collection of sensational yellow and pink diamonds. Oriana, meaning sunrise, comprises exquisitely crafted, dazzling designs set in white gold. These sparkling rarities are an absolute must-have for the discerning jewellery collector.
