Egypt’s Cleopatra favored emeralds as did the Moguls of India who wore them as talismans. Later, Spanish explorers discovered the fabulous green gem. The rich green hue is symbolic of the color of spring symbolizing loving and rebirth.
Emeralds are the 2020 Gem of the Year! Le Vian has uncovered an incredible source of emerald gems from Zambia and Brazil at a more pocket-friendly price range for those who desire this precious gem that is fresh, lively and the birthstone for May.
Natural fancy brown diamonds are available in shades from champagne to cognac to Chocolate Diamonds®, Le Vian®’s original brand of natural fancy color brown diamonds. Chocolate Diamonds® are naturally flavored, the depth of their color determined by the tremendous amount of pressure the diamond receives from deep within the earth.
The Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia is the world's largest producer of brown diamonds – 80% of Argyle's gem quality is brown. Famous brown diamonds include the 545 carat dark rich champagne hued "Golden Jubilee," the world's largest cut natural diamond.
The journey of a diamond in the rough to the sparkling diamond design you love is a fascinating story, one that began billions of years ago, deep within the earth where a diamond has formed under extreme heat and pressure. Its ascent from its natural home is forced by nature or man where it is then cleaved, cut and polished revealing its natural beauty. Diamonds are the hardest material on earth and the only gem that is composed of only one element, carbon.
Vanilla Diamonds® are specially selected to adorn Le Vian® designs – from breathtaking one-of-a-kind red carpet favored designs in Vanilla Gold® to the trendsetting combination of Strawberry ‘N Vanilla® featuring the blushing hue of Strawberry Gold® topped with Vanilla Diamonds®.
