    You know when you buy something and think, "mmmmmm, this is going to be too good to be true" well, in this instance I am pleased to say I was wrong! I bought this gorgeous baby orange diamond (0.12ct, VS1, untreated) to go into a multi-coloured diamond bracelet I've designed (to be made next year sometime).

    I just love the sparkle and the warm rich orange - that I've had difficulty capturing. To the naked eye there is absolutely no brown although my camera does seem to have picked up some. I put it next to a bottle of orange juice and the orange juice looked more yellow! This is really a beauty and I'm thrilled - a good way to end the year!

    Beautiful! It’s incredibly saturated for something so small.

    Good question - I'll check later. It looks like it might but I'm not sure. Will post photos if it does!

    Davi - I have a number of small FCDs, mainly pinks, purples and yellows. I'm going to put them into a white gold bracelet and my plan is as follows but I haven't quite decided howw to place the baskets under each of the gems and minimise the metal to allow as much light in as possible. The little pictures you see are of some of the diamonds that will go into the project although there are one or two very vivid ones that for some reason I didn't use in this mock-up!

    Gorgeous color. I can only imagine how it looks in real life, with all the incredible dispersion!
