    Vivid yellow diamonds are distinguished by their very deep, warm and lively jonquil yellow color. It is estimated that less than 1/10 of 1% of diamonds mined are a vivid yellow with no white traces and an even yellow color throughout. A rare few possess an astounding vivid yellow color which is almost incomparable.

    Originating in a turn of the century Tiffany & Co. 6-prong solitaire ring, this Old European Cut Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond is a rare example of 19th century cutting technology. This old fashioned cutting style, rarely found in today's market, epitomizes old world charm, brilliance and, above all, depth of color.
