Antwerp, Belgium–Hennig Tenders is hosting two tenders this month that include rough diamonds of yellow color from both South Africa and Australia.

First, Hennig will tender a selection of single rough stones from Batla Minerals SA’s Superkolong diamond tailings plant in Kimberley, South Africa.

The viewings for the Superkolong stones will begin Tuesday (May 10) in New York. The sale will include a 112.22-carat rough diamond of yellow color, as well as other yellow diamonds ranging in size from 3 to 50 carats.

The Superkolong rough will be available for viewing in New York until Thursday (May 12), before moving on to Ramat Gan, Israel (May 15 to 19) and Antwerp, Belgium (May 23 to 26.)

Originally mined by De Beers, Kimberley is an area of the world known for producing yellow diamonds.

Hennig also will be hosting a tender of more than 17,000 carats of rough diamonds sourced from the now-closed Ellendale diamond mine in northwest Australia.

Ellendale was operated by Kimberley Diamonds Ltd. and was one of the world’s leading sources of yellow diamonds, even once signing a now-defunct deal to supply Tiffany & Co. with its stones.

The mine shut down abruptly last year, leaving more than a hundred people out of work and owed back pay and a line of creditors who were owed millions.

Kimberley Diamonds placed the subsidiary company that operated the mine into voluntary administration, and Sydney-based insolvency firm Jirsch Sutherland was brought in to liquidate the mine.

Since then, the future fate of the site, which once produced almost half of the world’s yellow diamonds, has remained tied up in court. And, according to news reports, the former head of Kimberley Diamonds, Russian mining magnate Alex Alexander, was arrested in September 2015 for allegedly misleading the stock market about the price Tiffany would pay for his mine’s yellow diamonds.

Serendipity Diamonds has been selected amongst 14 finalists announced in the CanadaMark 2016 competition. CanadaMark Diamond’s 2016 Jewellery Competition honours jewellery pieces with the highest level of creativity and excellence in quality and style.

For a chance to win their chosen design, anyone can select the appropriate designer and cast their voteonline.

Jewellers entering the competition were required to submit a brand new ring design, featuring a fully traceable CanadaMark diamond, with a retail price that did not exceed $5000 USD. All 14 finalists created their ring designs in readiness for a public vote for the best design.

Mark Johnson, at Serendipity Diamonds, described their entry.

The new collection from Jerin Scott is all about creating memories to last a lifetime and features custom map jewelry, gorgeous amazonite stones, starfish accents, and compass jewelry to guide you on all of your summer journeys.

Whether you’re heading out on an incredible adventure this summer, or feeling nostalgic for past travels, Jerin Scott’s new limited edition Road Trip Collection will fuel your wanderlust with travel inspired jewelry.

This 12 piece collection, which will be released May 15, 2016, features vintage maps, compasses, starfish, Amazonite and state charms available for all 50 states. Several pieces in the collection will be customizable with a map or state charm of your choice to remember a special vacation spot. A distinct coastal vibe can be felt in the Road Trip Collection, inspired by some of JerinScott’s own favorite family road trips.

“This collection is all about creating memories to last a lifetime.”, said Jerin Scott. “I believe the jewelry you wear should tell the story of your journey.” The custom map pieces in this collection will offer customers a unique way to reminisce about a location that is special to them. Whether it be the city they met their husband, a tropical beach wedding destination, or perhaps a favorite vacation spot where memories were made with friends, Jerin can create a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry with a map to remember that special time.

Jerin Scott loves creating unique vintage inspired jewelry for those with a wistful affection for the past. Each piece is designed in Jerin’s home studio in Aransas Pass, TX. With a degree in Accounting from Texas A&M University, Jerin spent the first 10 years after college in the hustle and bustle of Corporate America. However, she always dreamed of a more creative career that would give her the flexibility to spend more time with her husband and their two children. Her jewelry business, formally known as Out of the Blue, was founded in 2007 after a leap-of-faith escape of the 9-to-5 life. Jerin’s designs have had worldwide success, being sold in 27 countries so far. Her jewelry has been featured in Country Living Magazine, Venus Zine, and numerous blogs.

Six pieces of jewelry from the collection of notorious Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff and his wife Ruth are going up for auction today, the U.S. Marshals Service said, more than seven years after Madoff’s $64 billion scam was uncovered.

The pieces, available at an online auction hosted from Texas, include a bracelet studded with more than 650 diamonds starting at over $21,000, an emerald necklace starting at $15,300, a leaf brooch with nearly 100 diamonds starting at $11,050, two sleek, gold watches each starting at more than $21,000 and a gold money clip in the shape of a paperclip starting at $380, according to the auction website.

Though Madoff was arrested more than seven years ago, officials are still attempting to track down the money he stole in his decades-long Ponzi scheme — including recouping some losses from major auctions. Previously, Madoff’s houses and yachts were sold or auctioned off for tens of millions.
