Founded in 1999, Optimum Diamonds, based in New York City, is one of the world's elite houses for rare and exotic natural color diamonds. Our expertise focuses on bringing to life the highest quality natural color diamonds ever discovered from the earth. Our leading experts study each gem from the beginning starting with rough, incorporating the science of cutting and polishing, and refining poorly cut diamonds to maximize weight and improve color.
At Optimum Diamonds, we are proud to satisfy the needs of many premiere jewelers and sophisticated collectors. Each stone in our collection comes with a report from the Gemological Institute of America's (GIA) to certify each stone is a natural color.
Our extensive collection includes some of the rarest colors on nature's palette: Red, Blue, Orange, Argyle Pink Diamonds, and the largest collection of rare natural green diamonds in the world.
