IDE Diamond Week to Feature Rainbow CollectionMarch 27, 14
Afterwards, the collection will be exhibited to the public at large at the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum in Ramat Gan until April 26.
Elzas, who started his collection some 40 years ago, said it would be the 57th time his collection had been exhibited. "The historical value of this collection cannot be estimated.
“I started the collection at a time when fancy colored diamonds were regarded as inferior diamonds. Those days, of course, are long gone. I am thrilled to be showing this collection for the first time in Israel, and the US & International Diamond Week is a perfect platform for showing this unique palette of fancy colored diamonds, including three rare, red diamonds," he added.
IDE President Shmuel Schnitzer said the collection would draw a great deal of attention, both from Israel Diamond Exchange members and buyers. "Israel is a leading manufacturing and trading hub for fancy colored diamonds and I count on overwhelming interest in this unique showpiece.
“And I am delighted that through the generous support of the Israel Diamond Institute and the cooperation with the Harry Oppenheimer Museum, the Israeli public will be able to get to see the Rainbow Collection as well.”
