Diamonds as an investment
Diamonds rise steadily in value; this means they can be considered a safe alternative for stock to protect your capital from economic crisis and inflation. Buying loose diamonds for investment purposes is also easier than buying for example precious metals like gold and silver because of the higher value per ounce.
Investing in diamonds | How to choose the right loose diamonds
You can easily seal loose diamonds in a safe deposit, while an equal value in gold or other materials would mean a much larger volume. Investing in diamonds does have a downside; it’s a bit harder to choose the right loose diamonds to invest in as there is a large difference in value based on the diamond's characteristics. To help you decide we can offer a few guidelines.
Historically the investment grade diamonds are those above 1 carat in the higher colours (from D to G) and in the higher clarity grades (from Loupe Clean to V.S. - very small inclusions). An absolute necessity for investment diamonds are diamond certificates from a trusted source like the International diamond certificates from either I.G.I. (Antwerp), H.R.D (Antwerp) or G.I.A (New York).
