Throughout history there have been many notable gemstones. Here are some of the most famous.

The Tiffany Yellow Diamond

The Tiffany Yellow is one of the most famous of the yellow diamonds. It is believed that the diamond was found in 1877 or 1878 at the De Beers Mine in South Africa. In the rough, the stone was a beautiful canary-yellow octahedron weighing 287.42 (metric) carats and it was valued at $12,000.000 in 1983. It is difficult to get an accurate description because no Major Gemological organization has ever formerly examined the diamond.

Today, the flagship store is found on Fifth Avenue has been a popular stop for people to stop by with their rent a car in New York since the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which starred Audrey Hepburn.

The store is one of the most recognized in the jewelry marketplace, with their blue boxes that are easily picked out of a crowd. The boxes, bags, and other items that merchandise is packaged in is a registered trademark called Tiffany Blue. Pieces from the store were worn by American royalty such as the Astors, the Vanderbilts, and the Morgans in the past. Today, athletes, movie stars, and even European royalty still come here for their jewels. The company has a deal with the Jericho Diamond Mine to buy and market the entire production of the mine, as well as spend money on development. A Tiffany gemologist was even instrumental in developing an international standard weight for gems as well as a standard for sterling and platinum.

One thing that you will want to check out while you are here with your rent a car in New York is the 128.54 carat Fancy Yellow Tiffany Diamond on display in the store.
