Beautiful and rare, with enormous potential for appreciation, natural fancy colored diamonds are one of the most exciting investment opportunities available today.
Fancy colored diamonds are the most rapidly growing hard asset investment available. They are high-value and, over the last 35 years, wholesale prices have never gone down. A look at the Champagne category of diamonds illustrates the rapid growth of the market. In the last six years, the market for these diamonds has grown from almost nothing to $6 billion.
Fancy colored diamonds are much more valuable than their colorless counterparts, and they’re performing better than many conventional investments. From 2001 to present, growth in diamond value surpassed the Standard & Poors index. In 2011, colored diamonds saw double the return of gold. Price volatility in this market has been low, in part because there hasn’t been the amount of speculation as seen in other markets, namely oil and gold.
Due to a number of factors, natural fancy colored diamonds have become a sound investment for astute investors. They are desired globally and demand from both investors and consumers will continue to be higher than supply. As a hard asset, they have not been impacted by the problems with the global banking system; in fact, they have an established history of keeping and growing their value. Importantly, certification standards for these rare and increasingly scarce jewels are universal, and they provide a safe, simple, private way to protect wealth, as they are not subject to regulatory agencies.
