When looking for new investments, investors often tend to stay within the bounds of their knowledge. Acquiring a second diamond of high quality after liquidating you first diamond investment is the perfect addition to your portfolio, and one that uniquely combines high returns with stable growth.

What colourless diamond quality is considered to be of top value?

As you know from past investments and research, diamond quality for colourless diamonds is expressed with the 4 C’s: cut, clarity, colour and carat. Although all diamonds are rare, some combinations in diamond quality make for even more unusual combinations. Cut, clarity and colour are minutely evaluated and graded for the certificate. These values, however, exponentially increase as caratage does. The 4 C’s are not proportional to the price of a diamond, rather the diamond triples or quadruples in value by even the smallest increase in weight in a high-quality diamond.

In 2013 Sotheby’s in Hong Kong auctioned a brilliant-cut colourless diamond graded D-colour, flawless clarity and excellent cut. The high-quality diamond weighed an astounding 118.28 ct. and was sold for $30.6 million.

Why would I choose a coloured diamond as a second investment?

Although colourless diamonds are rare enough, coloured diamonds are even more difficult to find in the global diamond market. Moreover, their value is exponentially increasing. They enjoy the emotional value that all diamonds carry but add their astonishing colour to the mix for an incomparable look and feel. Because of their increased use in diamond jewellery and as investment gems demand keeps rising, but supply stays low. Only a select number of mines produce coloured diamonds globally, and only a few are found each year

Coloured diamonds steadily rise in the diamond market year after year. Since coloured diamond quality is graded differently, you can choose a highly qualitative coloured diamond for a slightly smaller budget by picking one with a lower colour saturation.

What types of gem are classified as special diamonds?

The most valuable diamond assets are famous diamonds, such as the Hope Diamond, which are nigh impossible to purchase. They are auctioned at exclusive events where only the highest bidders in the world are given the chance to buy. To add special diamonds to your portfolio, all you need is a coloured or colourless diamond as specified above. Every diamond with top quality and unusually high-quality characteristics is given the name ‘special diamond’, no matter which colour. Adding special diamonds to your portfolio is a sure-fire way of giving it a large capital injection without taking many risks. Ready for a safe and stable investment? Then buy your special diamond and keep an eye on the diamond market.
