In addition to the previously mentioned benefits of rare colored diamond ownership, privacy, portability, and stability – here are several key points that have attracted knowledgeable individuals to this market:
Capital Preservation – For many years demand has outpaced supply. Fancy colored diamonds, according to some sources, have outperformed major stock, real estate, gold and silver, and collectible indexes of performance. They continue to set new records at auction (see attached articles).
Protection – Fancy colored diamonds are a hedge against inflation, especially during periods of currency devaluation. They are internationally recognized as a currency, like gold and silver, but have not been subject to the same severe declines in prices during recessions (see attached articles).
Estate Planning – They can easily be passed down to future generations as an heirloom when set as jewelry. Rare colored diamonds are the planet’s most concentrated form of wealth.
The following are just a few of the articles from well-respected investment publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Robb Report, and Money Magazine detailing these and other benefits of owning these crystal gems.
