What the heck is Yttrium? A rare element that, in small amounts, can be used to create the most spectacular stone on Earth. First found in Sweden, gemologists use this mineral to create a stone that can surpass the color of the finest and rarest canary diamonds.
For years, rare canary yellow diamonds could fetch above $20,000 a carat.They have been sought after by investors and celebrities who were forced to pay the price because nothing else could capture that color, that fire and that brilliance of the fancy vivid yellow stones. But by using a mixture of chemistry and romance, heat and gem cutting precision, science has come along and upended the diamond market. Yttria™ is a stone so stunning, so well cut, and with so much fire that diamond traders simply don’t know what to do with themselves.
Now this beauty and chemistry is available to a lucky few for the first time. In the first year, less that 100,000 carats of Yttria will be available to the world. That’s less than 1/10 of 1% of new diamonds produced just this year, so Yttria is expected to be in scarce supply. And the stones that are available will be quite large — 2 to 5 carats —ensuring that the visual impact will be without equal.
Our first design showcasing this stunning stone is the 5-carat Yttria Teardrop Necklace. Our normally stoic appraiser was shocked when we first showed it to him. He was stunned by the color, clarity and the precise cut. After a closer look with his instruments, he was thrilled to see that the color saturation was so complete. “It’s not a canary diamond,” he said, “It’s much more beautiful.”
Yttria is hard enough to cut glass and the fire measures even better than a diamond. And since the Yttria market is not controlled, the value is quite remarkable. For the first 3 months, we’re making this masterpiece available at our exclusive Stauer price! A similar colored canary would sell for well over $100,000 and that is simply absurd.
So not only is Yttria one of the most beautiful breakthroughs in gemological science, but it may also be the smartest stone you’ve ever owned. Brains and beauty? Now that’s good chemistry.
