My family’s antique gemstone collection was found in Indian Ocean! Stay tuned!

When I received a mail on Friday 22 September, I could hardly believe it: In the Indian Ocean, not far off the coast of Pakistan at Karachi, a fisherman made an unexpected find: a collection of 29 valuable gemstones, wrapped up in a little leather book!

And guess what, the origin of the collection was soon determined: My hometown Idar-Oberstein, also known as the most important gemstone centre worldwide. Or to be more precise, the stones belonged to my grandfather, the late Wilhelm Constantin Wild, founder of our family company!

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.

Aquamarine shines out in Fall 2017

‘Marina’ and ‘Bluebell’ are among the blue tones in the current Pantone Fashion Color Report for autumn / winter 2017. They fit in perfectly with the colour spectrum of the aquamarine, which, on account of its sparkling lustre in the colours of the sea, is regarded as the “world’s favourite stone”. For the first time, the report by Pantone identifies two colour ranges for the autumn, oriented toward the New York and London Fashion Weeks. Whilst New York chose a bold, radiant blue in ‘Marina’, London made a somewhat more cautious choice in the delicate ‘Bluebell’.
