Royal Purple Heart

Royal Purple Heart

Royal Purple HeartThe Royal Purple Heart Diamond is the largest fancy vivid purple diamond known to exist, weighing 7.34 carat and estimated to be an I1 clarity. The rough stone was cut into its perfect heart shape by Julius Klein, allowing the striking natural purple color to dazzle to maximum effect. Natural purple diamonds are among the rarest and most highly sought after color in which diamonds occur. Large pure purple diamonds (i.e. stones over 5 carat) are especially prized.

British gemologist Michael Hing was able to examine the stone in person sometime around 2002. It is among a series of famous diamonds he has been fortunate to examine. “The stone has diagonal surface graining that is clearly visible to the naked eye on the table facet if you look at it under a glancing light,” Mr. Hing writes, describing the stone. “It is not as blue as in your photo [shown above], it’s more purple than lilac. The girdle is very thick in parts, they were obviously trying to retain weight. It was mined in Russia.”

The “Royal Purple Heart” diamond gets its name from two important characteristics of the stone, the color and the shape, both of which are unique for this diamond. The unique purple color of the stone is an extremely rare color among diamonds, as rare or even rarer than red color in diamonds. the perfect heart-shaped cut of the diamond brings out the brilliance of the natural purple color of the stone. Thus the two unique characteristics of the stone, the color and the shape, have been appropriately combined together to give the name of the stone.
