PRESS: Gemstone collection from Indian Ocean back in Idar-Oberstein

Press Release: Idar-Oberstein Oct. 2017: Gemstone collection from Indian Ocean back in Idar-Oberstein

  • Edelsteinsammlung aus dem Ozean zurück in Idar-Oberstein
    Es ist eine Geschichte wie im Märchen: Ende September zieht ein pakistanischer Fischer eine etwa 80 Jahre alte Edelsteinsammlung mit 29 Edelsteinen aus dem Indischen Ozean. Anhand eines eingedruckten Firmenstempels macht er Wilhelm Constantin Wild aus Idar-Oberstein als ursprünglichen Besitzer aus. Der Fischer bestimmt, dass die Sammlung als Teil einer Familiengeschichte zurück nach Deutschland gelangen soll. Zudem sieht er es als Geste der Freundschaft zwischen Muslimen und Deutschen. Auf einen Finderlohn verzichtet der ehrliche Mann. Eine besonders rührende Geste ist, dass er anstelle des in der Sammlung fehlenden Tigerauges Perlen für das leere Fach schenken möchte. …
  • Gemstone collection from Indian Ocean back in Idar-Oberstein
    It’s like something out of a fairy tale: at the end of September a Pakistani fisherman pulled a collection of 29 gemstones, some 80 years old, out of the Indian Ocean. Thanks to the imprint of a company stamp he was able to identify Wilhelm Constantin Wild of Idar-Oberstein as the original owner. The fisherman decided that the collection, being part of family history, should make its way back to Germany. He also thought it would be a nice token of friendship between Muslims and Germans. Being an upright man, he waived his right to a finder’s reward. In a particularly touching gesture, he said he would like to fill the empty compartment with some pearls, making the family a present of them in lieu of the tiger’s eye which was now missing from the collection. …

A purple sapphire brings out the shine

In memory of the American singer Prince, the Pantone Color Institute has developed the new colour ‘Love Symbol #2’. With this lush purple tone, the institute posthumously honours the artist who achieved one of his greatest hits with ‘Purple Rain’ in 1984. Since then, violet has been inseparably associated with the musician, glamourous and passionate as he was. “The color purple was synonymous with who Prince was and will always be”, said Troy Carter, entertainment adviser to Prince’ estate.

Fans of this unforgettable musician can now rejoice: the gemstone purple sapphire brings out the shine in this new Pantone hue in an impressive way. Having said that, anyone wishing to acquire one is going to have to dig fairly deep into his pocket, as this stone – just like the pop legend of whom it reminds us – is a genuine rarity.

Sapphires are regarded as exquisite gemstones with many colour variants from sky blue to deep dark blue. The purple sapphire is a particularly rare variety. Many people have never even heard of this stone. Each purple sapphire is unique and much coveted, not only among collectors.

Then as now: the force of Nature

The world of gemstones is in a continuous process of modernisation, but Constantin Wild still puts his trust in hydropower for the processing of his precious gemstones today.

Water is the origin of everything. Especially as it relates to the success story of Idar-Oberstein. For when large agate deposits were found in the Hunsrück in the 15th century, the power of the water in the Idar stream was the only thing that enabled the big grinding wheels to be set in motion so that the raw stones, still grey and matt as they were, could be transformed into sparkling treasures. More and more cutting shops rapidly emerged – and with them, a flourishing industry.

Greenery summer 2017: peridot

After they had led a rather shadowy existence, the reputation of peridots gradually began to change: in the high mountains of Pakistan, at an altitude of over 4000 metres, some very fine, brilliant gold-green crystals were discovered. Today, the peridot is among the most coveted coloured gemstones worldwide. Its seductive, lush green hues and clarity have made it a strong competitor of the tourmaline and the emerald. The peridot is one of the very few gemstones which come in one colour only. This stone displays the most beautiful green tones of the summer: its range includes olive shades, the famous gold-green of the stones from Pakistan, a clear yellow green, a light lime green and the bluish green typical of stones from Burma. Very small but beautiful yellow-green stones come from China. And the best thing about this gemstone is that its colour will flatter the complexion of any woman! However, these fantastic stones do have one major disadvantage: all of them are very rare. Fortunately, I have a few remarkable peridots in my treasure chamber.

Sparkling greetings,
Constantin Wild
