Five tips for investing in diamonds

Saving accounts hardly yields no profit. Banks give extremely low interest rates and try to get depositors to invest. But every new investor fears of a financial hangover. Below we list up five tips to avoid them.

 

1. Know your risk

See how much money you can live without for the upcoming 5 years (or longer). Think of your future life phases and keep this in mind. Are you planning to buy a house or building, to get married, to consider having children… all these factors will have an impact on your financial situation. Make sure you have money available for these plans, so you prevent to sell the diamond with the corresponding loss. Based on the amount you have available to invest in diamond, you can choose between several possibilities.

2. Keep it simple

Act normal and don’t exaggerate just for the sake of it. Go for a diamond that fits your personality. For example, don’t go looking for the rarest coloured diamond just because it sounds exotic or because famous Hollywood stars have one on their finger.

3. Follow economic developments

You don’t need to read ‘De Tijd’ daily to be able to invest in diamonds, but you do must understand the social, economic, financial and political developments that are taking place in our world. This way, you learn to understand which factors affect the pricing of your diamond and its projected profitability.

4. Use your head

There are a lot of companies and businesses that provide credit ratings of investment products, funds and shares. These analyses and reports are not sanctifying. A product that made a lot of profit in the past does not necessarily have to in the upcoming years. Immerse yourself in the matter, think about any advice from your personal investment adviser and confidant especially on your own judgements.

5. Be patient

When investing in diamonds, your profit will come after some time. It makes no sense to look every day at the statistics of your investment portfolio. Keep your focus on the horizon and rate the success of your investment at the end.
