One client turned to us after searching the Eastern seaboard estate jewelry buyers and gemologists for a $6,500.00 offer on a “Fancy Yellow Diamond” set in an 18K yellow gold mounting. We were able to locate a buyer within three days who paid $18,500.00 for the piece. Fancy Color diamonds have been setting all time records in prices received in the last year.
Old mine and old European diamonds speak of an elegant less hurried time where pride of old world cutting techniques was performed with great pains by old world diamond cutters. The hypnotic dance of light produced from the old mine and old European diamond faceting arrangement is becoming scarce as many retail jewelers continue to re-cut the old mine and old European cut diamonds into easier to sell modern round brilliant facetted diamonds for their clients. This makes the old European and old mine cut diamonds today ever more scarce particularly in the finer “white” colors from D to G. We specialize in purchasing and selling these old mine and old European diamond masterpieces.
Fancy colored old cut diamond clients interesting in selling approach us regularly to obtain for them the highest price on their rare, exotic and collectible fancy color old European and old mine diamonds in this most demanding market place. We have individuals openly state they are glad to have any prospective clients give them a call to ask about their own experiences with our services. While these older cut diamonds in fancy yellow, pink, green and orange are rarely ever seen, they are actively sought by our collector base. Please give us a call and discuss any questions you have on any fancy color diamonds you are considering a sale of.
Originally fashioned in a time when electric light was unheard of, the broad flat facets reflect a nostalgic time gone by when broad reflective bands of diamond light danced in dimly lit romantic parlors and ballrooms. The mirror like facets of the old mine diamonds and old Europeans adorned the hats and dress of royalty and upper class for centuries during the period when civilizations were burgeoning into explicit adornment.

I also found Ralph Morgan by doing an online search. I had been shopping my Mother-In-Law, diamond locally and was told all sorts of stories. Ralph was extremely informative in his appraisal and descdption of this stone. Ralph made rne aware that it was not really an Old European cut as I had been told, but a transitional cut Ralph kept in constant communication throughout the transaction. I would have no hesitation sending him another diamond for him to appraise and sell for me.
I luckily stumbled across Ralph Morgan’s web site while I was nervously searching for someone knowledgeable and experienced who could help me sell my old European cut diamond ring. After chatting with him at length I followed up with the references he gave me. They were glowing testimonials. I felt comfortable enough to move forward. Ralph was the perfect man for the job, He is a shining diamond in a rough old world.
Ralph and his Old European Diamond business was a great find!! He can assist you with exactly what you want and all your gemological needs. You must send pictures and be ready with details and he will assist you and is very knowledgable about all aspects of the gems in question. Communication with him is very good. He is tremendous with his ability and speed to find exactly what you need. I felt comfortable with him and trust him, he is honest and does not sugar coat anything so that you will buy. I live in Virginia and have never met him but feel he is like a friend.
After speaking with jewelers and realizing old cut diamonds are a specialty item, I found Ralph Morgan, G.G. with his expertise in this market. He assisted me in getting a very fair return on my Aunt’s Old European Diamond pendant which I had inherited.
We found this business through an online search. My husband and I drove to Austin from Dallas to meet with Ralph Morgan, the Graduate Gemologist. We were impressed with both his professionalism and knowledge of gems and were quite comfortable leaving our old cut diamond with him on consignment. In avery short period oftime Ralph found a buyer for our diamond at a very good price. We couldn‘t have been more pleased with his service and the results. In the future we will be going back to Ralph Morgan for investment gems. He deals very fairly with his clients.
After seeing a number of jewelers and searching the central Texas area for the best price we could receive on my near 3 carat Old European diamond, we agreed to have Ralph Morgan broker the diamond for us for a higher cash amount. He was professional, informative and got us a signiﬁcantly higher price than any other person we approached.
