Pumpkin Diamond

Have you ever heard of a Pumpkin diamond? No, not a diamond shaped like a pumpkin, but a diamond the color of a pumpkin! This famous Fancy Vivid Orange Diamond, has a finished weight of 5.54 carats. It was cut and polished by William Goldberg and then purchased by Harry Winston for $1.3 million at the Sotheby’s auction. The auction occurred the day before Halloween and was renamed the “Pumpkin Diamond.” Ronald Winston, along with Phillip Block, designed a ring with the diamond, which actress Halle Berry wore during the 2002 Academy Awards. The diamond was also part of the Smithsonian “Splendor of Diamonds” exhibit. It was then remodeled into a brooch later on…

It is the world’s largest known Fancy Vivid Orange Diamond and is now valued over $3 million!

Happy Halloween!
