Would You Dare to Invest in Diamonds?

Most people buy diamonds as a symbol of love, to show depth and strength of feelings; for somebody who is very important in their lives be it parents or beloved ones; for yourself as an award of success. Purchasing a diamond is one of the great ways to express such qualities as beauty, rarity, and eternity.

But there is another reason why you should buy a diamond - it is one of the most profitable investments. For the last ten years, colored diamonds have risen in price by over 1000%. According to future forecasts not only fancy colored gemstones will rise in price but also colorless diamonds.

How is the price of precious stones formed?


The price for a diamond depends on its key characteristics known as 4Cs: Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat. Rare diamonds of the highest color and clarity characteristics (D-F; IF-VVS2) are the most attractive for investments. The optimal weight for such stones is 1-5 carats and the most tempting form is round. Prices for such stones can reach the value of several hundred thousand US dollars per 1 carat and even higher. The heavier the stone the more value it has because of its uniqueness and rareness - the most important factors in price formation.

However, fancy colored gemstones like pink, yellow or red are also at the peak of popularity. Less than 1 percent of all diamonds mined in the world is colored. Diamonds of the very intense colors grew three times faster in price than less intense colored gemstones. For example, for 15 years colored diamonds have increased in price by more than 4.5 times. The champion among all of the stones became a Pink Star diamond sold at Sotheby's in Switzerland for 76.3 million Swiss francs ($ 83 million).
