De Young One…

De Young One…

De Young Red DiamondThe De Young is red (modified round brilliant) diamond weighing in at 5.03 carat. It is the third largest red diamond in the world. The main kite-shaped facets on the crown are horizontally divided in two, giving the stone slightly more brilliance than a standard round brilliant. Red diamonds are the rarest and most exotic diamonds which means they are also the most expensive and naturally the most desired. A red diamond is so rare that there are jewellers and diamantaires that have rarely seen one, though everyone is aware of this diamond’s uniqueness and its value.

This De Young was once bought at estate sale mistakenly as a red garnet (imagine that)! The De Young is not a pure red, however, there is a slight brown hue to the stone, which is what makes it appear more like a fine garnet than ruby like the Hancock Red and the Red Shield.

The De Young Red is in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.
