In which period of the year do you best buy loose diamonds?

  • Large discounts, but are they real?
  • Buying loose diamonds in December
  • You only get the best deal with the right knowledge

You better buy new clothes or new shoes on sale, when discounts are incredible. This is when the new collections are looking around the corner and the stock supply has to leave the store. But do these seasonal sales also count for investors who are considering buying loose diamonds?

Large discounts, but are they real?

For who is interested in buying loose diamonds as an investment will be amazed how often discounts are given by many different jewellers. It is even so that a lot of them are practically never ending sales, favourable isn’t it? Many stores offer a permanent discount on particular types of diamonds. The price on which the sale is offered is just a higher price, by which the clients and investors pay the normal prices. Truthfully, it is not a real discount. But the biggest sale you can get is just buying diamonds tax-free.

Buying loose diamonds in December

The period from October till January is for diamond dealers the most important one of the year, with Christmas, New Year and Valentine. The demand for diamonds is the highest in this period, therefor prices will increase simultaneously with it. Discounts and (real) special offers won’t be found during this time. Jewellers are very well aware of the seasonal trends and will get the supply to fluctuate together with the demand.

You only get the best deal with the right knowledge

Buying loose diamonds with the focus on profitability can only be achieved if you have the right knowledge. Investing in loose diamonds always starts with the 4 C’s. Do not get overwhelmed by the jeweller’s sales pitch, but show them your basic knowledge about investment diamonds and ask oriented questions about characteristics and parameters concerning colour or clarity.

Furthermore, it is recommended to monitor diamond prices. To constantly know in which price categories the diamonds are today. This knowledge gives you the advantage during price negotiations. And if a jeweller wants to give you a discount, you can easily evaluate if it is a real discount.

The pricing at BAUNAT DIAMONDS is fixed on the accompanied certificates (GIA, HRD, IGI) and so based on objective parameters. Do you want to buy loose diamonds? Ask, without further obligations, for an offer for the diamonds of your choice.
