THE BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN DIAMONDS

Since 2008 the global economy has known many ups and downs - but mainly downs. It is during these difficult times that people start to watch out for their money and look for real alternatives.

It is also during these times that we learn and appreciate the advantages of physical commodities. This is why we see the increase in the value of gold, diamonds and natural coloured diamonds.

DIAMOND REQUIREMENTS FOR INVESTING

When investing in a diamond or diamonds, it is important that you understand the 4 C’s of diamond grading. Although Campbell Coyle Gems goes over and beyond the 4 C’s to ensure that a client receives the best possible quality diamond, the 4 C’s will help any buyer understanding what they are investing in. Read more about the 4 C’s of diamond grading by clicking here.

Further to the 4 C’s of diamond grading, Campbell Coyle ensures that each diamond is accompanied by a diamond certificate which is issued by a reputable grading laboratory such as GIA, EGL or SGL. For more information on certification, please feel free to click here.

BEFORE INVESTING IN A DIAMOND SPEAK TO AN EXPERT

Make sure to contact an expert for advice before purchasing an investment diamond. A specialist will give you more information on the best investment strategy. For example, it’s like going to a financial planner. Ten different people will have ten different needs. Therefore, it’s considered very important to speak to an adviser.

We will also be able to assist the investor at a later stage to resell the investment diamond if they’re planning to sell it. It’s important to know that retailers won’t be able to assist with investment diamonds; these diamonds are in a league of their own and not found easily at retail level. Therefore, an investor will require a specialist, contact us today to book an appointment.

BUY DIRECTLY FROM AN INTERNATIONAL DEALER

When you invest in a diamond make sure it's reasonably close to the source price. This way, you will be able to resell the diamond at a later stage and still manage to make a profit. In addition, it’s highly recommended to avoid purchasing a diamond from a retailer.

If you purchase an investment diamond from a diamond expert, it usually means buying a diamond closer to the source. For example, a diamond will be mined, sorted, cut and polished, and sold to a manufacturer. From there, it will usually go to two or three other diamond dealers before it will go to a jeweller. Therefore, it’s better to purchase a diamond higher up the supply chain and eliminate additional profits or cost that were added on.



CONFIRM THE QUALITY OF YOUR INVESTMENT DIAMOND

The investment diamond should be graded by an independent third party, such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) before purchasing the gemstone. But, keep in mind, even though the diamond has a GIA certificate it doesn’t mean it’s the quality of an investment diamond.

It's still considered to be very important to speak to a diamond expert, who will be able to tell you if the diamond has the minimum requirements and if it meets the Rapaport Specification 2+ quality standard. Diamond investing is a highly specialised field with very few people actually understanding it. It’s definitely not something you would buy from a retailer or approach a retailer with, but rather an expert.



LONG TERM / SHORT TERM

If you’re planning on investing in a diamond start with at least US $100 000. This way, you would be able to receive the benefits of the diamond at a later stage. Also, it's important to ask yourself whether it's a long term or short term investment. An investment diamond is an economy strategy; there is a vast difference if you hold onto it for 2-3 years or for 20+ years. In some cases, people want to buy an investment diamond and never sell it. All in all, there are many different strategies.

CHOOSE YOUR MARKET

It’s also up to you to decide in which market you would like to buy and sell an investment diamond. If you buy a diamond and you live in the United States it will be a different type of diamond that you will buy if you lived in Russia or Europe. Even if you lived in the United States there are different types of markets. It all depends on the personal strategy.

Investing in a diamond remains to be a truly remarkable field, and therefore, a financial alternative worth investigating. Before deciding on investing in a diamond make sure to contact a diamond expert directly.
