Colored Diamonds: Investment Trends

Colored Diamonds: Investment Trends

Diamond investment markets are heating up. A recent growth in popularity of colored diamonds has been faced by the unpredictability of supply. The prices have been bullish and this has made the investment market in diamonds highly dynamic and vibrant. Diamonds remain the best form of portable and concentrated investment in these uncertain times... stealth wealth as they are sometimes refered.

Look no further than the investment trend in pink diamonds. Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine, based in Western Australia, has been the main source of investment-grade pink diamonds. Much like the Australian outback, this source is ‘drying out’. With less certain supplies from Latin American and African mines, this has lead to a hike in prices. A recent article in Financial Times indicates that the index price for pink diamonds increased 108 percent between 2002 and 2010, whereas for white diamonds it grew just 22 percent in the same period.

Diamond investment, not dissimilar to wine and art investment, is a subject to taste and knowledge. Know your supply and know your dealer. This ensures you will receive the best quality and the upmost service.
