Press Release: The Rainbow Collection, a unique collection of some 300 fancy colored diamonds owned by the renowned Belgian diamantaire Eddy Elzas, will be the chief exhibit in the trading hall of the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) during  U.S. & International Diamond Week, April 6 to 10. Afterwards, the collection will be exhibited to the public  at the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum.

Elzas, who started his collection some 40 years ago, said this is the 57th time his collection has been exhibited. (Read more after the image.)

"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. These days, of course, are long gone," Elzas recalled. "I am thrilled to be showing this collection for the first time in Israel and the U.S. & International Diamond Week is a perfect platform for showing this unique palette of fancy colored diamonds, including three rare, red diamonds." 
IDE's president, Shmuel Schnitzer, said the collection would draw a great deal of attention, both from IDE's 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."

After the conclusion of Diamond Week, the Rainbow Collection will be exhibited until April 26 at the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum in the Ramat Gan diamond exchange complex.
