Welcome to the New Year!
Dear Customers and Readers, Dear Friends:

Welcome to the New Year!
Welcome to the INHORGENTA MUNICH Trade Show!
Welcome to our orange coloured year!

Surely you still remember the orange tiles of your aunt’s bathroom, the orange telephone in the living room or even, perhaps, an orange toaster in the kitchen. Accessories in a retro-style are much sought after today, and in 2013, orange is the latest trend!

I associate orange with a zest for life; for me, it is a positively charged colour and one that is full of energy. Children love to use it when painting and who doesn’t enjoy a nice, juicy orange?

This year, our companies will be focussing on the colour orange, so let’s launch this dynamic, orange coloured year together!

All our best wishes for many new orange impressions and insights!

Our New Colour Grading Card for Orange Diamonds
This year, we are introducing our new colour grading card for the lively and fiery diamond colour that is orange. This is the fourth card in our series of colour grading cards after those dedicated respectively to Champagne, yellow, and pink diamonds.

This colour chart is a helpful tool when dealing with customers and can facilitate communication when discussing various shades of colour. Based on the internationally recognized GIA terminology, the card shows the scale of colours from Fancy Light Orange through the rare Vivid Orange and right up to Fancy Deep Yellow Orange or Fancy Deep Brown Orange.

We have also included Yellow and Brown secondary colours as they are frequently encountered; this also shows just how very rare pure orange diamonds are in nature.

On the back of the colour grading card, you will find important facts about the cause of colour and the sources of orange diamonds.

All about Natural Coloured Diamonds
The Power of Colour
Orange represents energy, activity, sociability, pleasure, amusement and heat. In this effect, it is usually combined with red and yellow.

Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863), one of the most important French painters and a pioneer of the impressionist movement, wrote:

“Everyone knows that yellow, orange and red inspire and represent ideas of joy and wealth.”
The Pumpkin Diamond or Love, Death and the Devil
In March 2002, at the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles, the real star of the evening was the Pumpkin Diamond.

Set in a ring, its exceptionally intense orange colour glowed from the ring on American actress Halle Berry’s little finger. Among orange diamonds, this one is a rarity.

Gemmology Corner
Diamond Colour: Orange
Pure orange coloured diamonds are among the rarest diamonds in general.

Even experienced experts at large institutions such as the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) have only the rarest opportunity to grade a diamond’s colour as Fancy Vivid Orange.
