A collection of fancy yellow diamonds worth approximately $10 million will be exhibited at the Birks jewelry store on Bloor Street in Toronto from May 2 to 6. It will be the largest collection of yellow diamonds ever to be exhibited in the 133-year history of the Birks luxury jewelry chain.
A total of more than 60 diamond jewelry pieces will be on display, including a rare 15-carat internally flawless, fancy intense yellow radiant-cut diamond set in a platinum ring, with a trapezoid on each side.
“Yellow diamonds are some of the world’s most beautiful fancy color diamonds and have been the choice of royals and celebs throughout the ages,” said Jean-Christophe Bedos, president and CEO of Birks & Mayors Inc.
