Langerman Natural Color Diamonds has created the world’s largest collection in a spectrum of over 350 colors.
Throughout history, natural color diamonds were adorned by kings, queens, and nobility, yet they were forgotten at the beginning of the 20th century only to resurface in Antwerp after the 1960s. My father Arthur Langerman established Langerman Diamonds in 1965, the first natural color diamond company, and pioneered the field of natural color diamonds. It has since been an incredible journey discovering and creating the world’s largest collection in a spectrum of over 350 colors.
The first step in navigating the universe of natural color diamonds is to recognize that they’re radically different from colorless diamonds. Instead of following a precise formula of angles and facet numbers, the cut and shape of each natural color diamond must adapt to the color distribution and other unique circumstances of the stone. This is what makes every color diamond, of any size, a unique piece of art.
By partnering with Rapaport we hope to steer your interest to the awe and individual beauty of these
masterpieces, especially in the most unsuspecting colors, and share the tools and knowledge we use daily at Langerman Diamonds.
In this special supplement, you’ll discover a dazzling array of colors, and learn how we define and
communicate this by awakening the color sensations of our brains with names like Honey, Cinnamon, Olive, Raspberry, Saffron, Steel, or Lime. Then we take a journey into the history of natural color diamonds, and study what makes them such a rare occurrence in nature. Why do some diamonds have a natural color? And how do we perceive color? Finally, we’ll see how today’s leading fine and high jewelry designers are bringing their visions to life.
All of this would be for naught without some examples of the gorgeous pieces we’ve had the pleasure of encountering during almost six decades at Langerman Diamonds. We hope your eyes are as entertained as your mind with these visual candies, and invite you to develop a renewed passion for natural color
