Tiffany & Co unveils eye-catching set of yellow diamonds

The largest vivid yellow fancy colour diamond discovered in Canada has been cut into two remarkable emerald-cut stones by Tiffany & Co.

The 71.26-carat rough was discovered at the Ekati mine in northern Canada in 2021 and was purchased by Tiffany & Co the following year. 

After previewing the diamond to private clients, the rough was cut into separate 15-carat and 20-carat stones in Antwerp.

Chief gemmologist Victoria Reynolds said that few people understand the beauty and rarity of fancy colour diamonds.

“It’s very rare to find a diamond of this size and saturated colour that came from hundreds of miles in the earth in this near-perfect octahedron structure,” she told Robb Report.

“Most people, even gemmologists, will never see a rough stone in this condition.”

Tiffany & Co has had a renewed focus on exceptional diamonds and gemstones in recent years, purchasing a 10-carat emerald from the Muzo mine in Colombia and 35 pink diamonds from the Argyle in Western Australia.

Reynolds added: "Our artisans handcrafted this rough stone into two gemstones of unparalleled vivid yellow colour and brilliance, transforming nature's miracles through the exceptional skill of Tiffany craftsmanship.”


Two mesmerising fancy vivid yellow diamonds of 20 and 15 carats each have been cut and polished from a 71-carat rough.

The headline act of an upcoming Sotheby’s auction in Geneva will be a 103-carat fancy intense yellow diamond ring named the 'Love Stone'.

The ring is expected to return as much as $US4.1 million ($AU6.45 million). The Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels sale will take place from 6-8 November.

Earlier this week, Rio Tinto detailed the ‘Beyond Rare Tender’, showcasing 48 lots of fancy colour diamonds in Australia, Switzerland and Belgium, with bids closing on 20 November.
