TEL-AVIV, Israel, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Denir Diamonds markets a 21 carat Natural Fancy Vivid Yellow stone named "The Olympic Jubilee" that recently came into their ownership in moving and unusual circumstances.
A Hollywood celebrity vowed to herself as a child that if she will ever become an international star, she would devote a major part of her life to helping others. Well, she became a star, much bigger than she or anyone else had ever dreamt about and during her rise to fame, an amazing fancy vivid yellow diamond came into her possession.
Years later whilst filming on location in India, she was distressed by the poverty she encountered and never forgetting her promise yet still wanting to maintain her secrecy, she approached a reputable and established Indian diamond merchant to discretely turn her stone into a commodity that could indeed help others. What she did not know was the value of this fabulous diamond and its amazing qualities.
This prudent diamond dealer sensing that this was perhaps more than his own clientele would appreciate, contacted an Israeli associate who is a famous specialist in these types of stones.
Two of the largest world diamond bourses are found in Israel and India with excellent trade relations between these two countries. These centres complement each other with many Israeli companies supplying exclusive international customers for many years.
Once this treasure came into the hands of Denir Diamonds, they re-valued the stone based on a grading by The Gemological Institute of America and are now offering this unique gem for 3.1 million US dollars. It is described as a Natural Fancy Vivid Yellow stone weighing 20.82 carats in a square emerald cut shape. It measures 15.81 x 15.20 x 9.91mm, has an even colour and its polish and symmetry is defined as Very Good. They have fittingly named it "The Olympic Jubilee."
Sinclair Cook, spokesman for the company commented, "The timing for the discovery of this magnificent diamond is auspicious" and continued "as it coincides with two current events that personify the diamond's qualities and are in tune with the aspirations of this philanthropic international Hollywood celebrity."
The first is the diamond jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and the second is the 2012 Olympics which will commence in a few weeks.
The unique proportions of the stone show solidity, permanence and personify all that Man can learn from his history, whilst the vivid and astounding colour of this diamond reflects the excitement and inspiration of the 21st century and the future.
The sixty years of the Queen's diamond jubilee has seen the world change at a pace never before experienced. Time and place are no longer barriers, yet this global awareness has shown that mankind cares more about his environment and his fellow human being than ever before.
The Olympic Games prove that endeavour and the brotherhood of man will persevere and show that world unity can overcome any obstacle.
To quote Denir, "It is for this reason we have named this unique diamond The Olympic Jubilee, within it the past and the future merge into one extraordinary experience."
