Coloured and Black Diamonds

I was just wondering if some of you wonderful people have ever seen a royal, noble, etc. with any sort of jewelry that features the elusive red diamond! From what I understand red diamonds are the hardest color diamonds to find and I was just wondering if any royal, noble, etc. have been seen with one! To those who are willing to help me, thank you in advance!

Here's a link to an image of a necklace incorporating a red diamond (among other colours), designed for the Maharajah of Nawanagar.

I was think more along the line of something like this:

Purplish Red Heart Shaped Diamond

Although that diamond is not a pure red diamond, it was more what I was looking for... (no offense or anything)

I found information on that diamond, but none of it mentioned if it was in any setting that had been given to a royal/noble to wear, such as a crown, tiara or brooch.

I know, the only info I've been able to find is this website that basically talks about how exclusive and rare it is but nothing about any royals having some of the diamonds! And apart from the picture Warren has provided, nothing

I think I might have seen one at the Smithsonian Institute's National Gem Collection back in 1998. The Dynamic Earth @ National Museum of Natural History But I've never seen one on a royal. I think they'd be far too valuable & too expensive to ensure to be worn in public! I think it would be the unltimate coupe for Camilla is she received one as a gift from an Arab State....

Here is a website which I call All you need to know about Diamonds.

Look down the left hand side, there is a wealth of information and detail to be found within these headings, especially the 'Other Resources' group.

Here is the section on Red Diamonds
And one can't go past 100+ Famous Diamonds

(thanks to Wymanda who showed me this site a couple of years ago)

Some beautiful diamonds, particularly that purple-red heart shaped one.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks a lot for the link. I'm very found of diamonds.
I saw once a little red diamond - about a 0,4 carat- for a ancient tiepin, very little but spetacular for its sparkling. They had say to me the price ten years ago, absoluly "sparkling" too..Thanks God I don't wear tie neither tiepin.....

Onyx/Black Diamonds

I was wondering if anyone has pictures of royals wearing onyx or black diamonds? Or is it considered morbid or bad luck?

Onyx is one of the stones acceptable for mourning, so I don't think it's morbid or bad luck. You might be able to find some photos of royals wearing it. Was it very popular in the 1920s in the Art Deco era? But I think Black Diamonds might be a fairly recent thing so I doubt royalty has been seen wearing them. Although they seem like they would work for Corwn Princess Mary of Denmark.

The countess of Frederiksborg would look great with them. She has that exotic look that goes imo well with black jewellery. On Mary it would look to gotic I think.

Holy crap. That is spectacular. Western men should wear more jewellery.

Yes, Your Highness, men should wear more jewelry. But who among us could possibly afford that necklace??? If I had it I would wear it, but would have to get a whole new wardrobe. My best black suit just would not do, or come to think of it maybe it would. I could possible even go minimal and wear nothing but a dignified and well placed loincloth. After all there is in the record one Indian princeling who was bedecked with jewels all over his august person and the tasteful loincloth. Or possibly a well crafted and diamond studded fig leaf???

Of course there is the ultimate colored diamond, what is now misnamed the Hope diamond which is a 40 something carat blue diamond which was stolen from the French royal treasury during the idiotic and insane Revolution and the cut down to size years later and sold. Of course there is the fabulous Russian diamond tiara with the ten carat pink diamond and the Wilkinson diamond (a mere 23 carats) in a brooch for Queen Elizabeth.. Plus a gorgeous drop dead marvelous muliti colored diamond parure in the Russian Imperial collection. Yes, men should wear more jewelry. Cheers.

I think you mean the rose-pink diamond of 54 carats from Tanganyika [Tanzania] which at the time was the world's largest pink diamond.
It was presented to Princess Elizabeth on her marriage by Dr John T Williamson, a reclusive Canadian diamond mine owner, millionaire and devoted royalist.
The diamond was made up by Cartier as a daffodil flower brooch in 1953.
