Things to Know About Investing in Diamonds

Buying and Selling Diamonds

Buying diamonds is an easy task, but selling them is much more difficult. An established diamond merchant will have greater success in selling the diamond. The more reputable, the more profitable the sale is likely to be.

There are two main reasons for this:

  • One of the dangers for jewelers and investors who buy diamonds from non-industry sources is the risk of fraud.
  • Purchasers that are not established jewelers may pay retail for the diamond and will only be able to sell it back to a jeweler for the wholesale price - at most.

Diamond Quality and Value

Diamond value is determined by the prominent 4Cs:

  1. Cut
  2. Color
  3. Clarity
  4. Carat

Why Invest in Diamonds?

These are just a few reasons why people might choose to invest in diamonds:

  • Preference to keep a percentage of wealth "portable" as opposed to keeping it in the bank.
  • Diamonds offer sentimental or family investments. They can be an important part of an estate or inheritance.

Tips for Diamond Investment

  • Purchase your diamond from an established dealer.
  • Buy your diamond with a certificate issued by an internationally recognized laboratory to safe guard your purchase, regardless of its size.
