RAPAPORT... Leibish & Co. acquired a collection of certified, natural round, brilliant-cut, fancy-colored diamonds that have remained wax-sealed in a transparent box since they were first graded on January 15, 1981. The company reported that the collection includes 18 stones in a variety of intensities, ranging from very light to fancy vivid, with a total weight of 2.53 carats. The collection comes with its original Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certificate, ID number 1910307, and its stones are guaranteed to be of "natural origin."

"This a collection diamond lovers will appreciate," said Leibish Polnauer, the president of Leibish & Co.  "It is very rare to find a certified parcel and it's even rarer to find it still in its original sealed box after so many years."

The indentation of the wax seal is still visible on the satin lining of the outer box due the many years that the box remained unopened. Polnauer added that 30 years ago, the highest intensity provided by the GIA was "intense," as  "vivid" intensity did not yet exist at that time.
