Investment Diamonds: where to start?

When adding tangible fixed assets to an investment portfolio, collecting and investing in diamonds could be a way to contribute to the profitability of your portfolio. But how do you start? Below, we list 5 ways to realize it.

Knowledge

Knowledge is an important tool before and during the consideration process. You will come full circle when you are able to use that knowledge when you decide to resell your investment diamonds. Acquiring knowledge regarding precious stones takes you along geography, history, geology and sociology. Learning to understand the entire journey a precious stone undergoes, from its place of origin to the market, is the basis for buying suitable investment diamonds. An additional level of understanding will be added by knowledge regarding the most important diamond-producing areas.

Focus and funds

The faster we can concentrate ourselves on the nature of the investment diamonds collection we wish to buy, the better. The total value of an investment diamonds collection will improve by a targeted allocation of the necessary financial recourses with a clear purpose in mind. Owning one diamond of each renowned diamond centre in Europe, for example, will result in a more valuable collection than a random assortment of precious stones from all over the world. Whichever level and kind of investment diamonds you wish to buy; there is a wide selection of investment diamonds at all price levels.

Time

Time is crucial when making a decision. Purchasing can always be a gamble, but buying a new – just found – diamond can also be a wise investment. On the other side, practicing caution, too, can lead to profit.

Colour hues

A discreet difference in colour can have a profound influence on a diamond’s pricing. Specific colours and colour combinations, together with the intensity, can make a big difference. The ability to distinguish whether or not a colour is pure based on its hue, tone and saturation can help with purchasing quality. It can even help to pick out unique and valuable colours hidden in a large collection of seemingly similar investment diamonds. It is important to be able to recognise an attractive and valuable colour, to keep it in mind and to compare it with the investment diamonds that are offered to you.

Common sense

If it comes to an actual purchase, you have to apply all your knowledge when making the decision. Taking calculated risks is also needed when building  your investment diamonds collection. You don’t have to do this alone. The specialists of BAUNAT DIAMONDS have many years of experience and can assist you with their knowledge and understanding of the diamond industry.
