The Tiffany Yellow Diamond

It is believed that the Tiffany Yellow was found in either 1877 or 1878. It was cut under the supervision of the distinguished gemologist George F. Kunz in 1878, yielding a cushion-cut brilliant of 128.54 carats. The gem is high in fluorescence and retains this rich color in artificial light, but is even more beautiful by day.

However, it is important to draw a distinction between light yellow and yellowish diamonds and those of the rare deeper canary yellow; the Tiffany Yellow remains one of the finest examples of the latter of the three.
