A week before the show, Rahaminov Diamonds kept us guessing with announcing an unveiling of their exquisite and rare jewels being debuted at JCK Vegas. Six stunning pieces were showcased in their booth at the show. The line-up included one of the most tantalizing and rare diamonds named the “Vivid Ocean,” a fancy vivid-bluish green radiant-cut diamond; the “Golden Majesty,” a colossal natural fancy yellow diamond, weighing 40.23 carats; the “One Hundred” bracelet, created with a collection of 100 fancy colored diamonds and weighing an amazing 100 carats; the “Pink & Green,” a beautiful 2.05-carat natural fancy yellow-green cushion-cut diamond with natural pink melee; the “Fancy Pink,” a 7.09-carat radiant-cut diamond and, finally, the “Vibrant Bloom,” an extremely rare collection of eight GIA-certified natural fancy colored diamonds known to exist, which happens to be the winning piece entered into the competition.
PGI-USA challenged all designers to create one platinum jewelry piece inspired by the traditional five-year anniversary gift of wood. PGI urged designers to get in tune with nature and incorporate the theme into a unique platinum piece. The “Vibrant Bloom” was the perfect piece for this category and spans across the color spectrum of pink, purple, blue, green, orange and yellow; the color palette inspired by nature.

Rahaminov Diamonds was honored at the show on Sunday, June 1, 2014 as the winner of the award and was presented the notice by PGI.
