Why should I add coloured diamonds to my investment portfolio? Which colours are the rarest? As an investor, you know that for a safe long-term investment you should be focused on a diversified investment portfolio. The alternative diamond value category is a perfect addition. All diamonds are precious and unique, but some are of course even rarer than others. We are happy to give you more information about these ‘special diamonds’ and their colours.

Why did blue diamonds rise in price?

A blue diamond as an investment, is it possible? Of course, you can ask a quotation to add a blue diamond to your investment portfolio. Blue is one of the rarest diamond colours and comes in different shades, from bright blue to grey blue, green blue and purple blue. The exceptional gemstones thank their colours to the presence of boron and nitrogen in the earth layers. This only appears in a few mines.

Looking at the offer, 2016 as well as 2017 was a less productive year. According to the Fancy Colour Research Foundation that’s why the price of the blue diamond increased with 4,7% in the third quarter.

What coloured diamonds are declining price?

Are coloured diamonds already in your investment portfolio? Then you probably know that within the offer of coloured diamonds, yellow and brown are the easiest to find. Yellow diamonds get their yellow colour from the presence from nitrogen. Don’t confuse the yellow diamond with a colourless diamond with a Z-colour, which is light yellow tinted.

The prices of fancy yellow diamonds declined with 2,5% on an annual basis and were 0,1% lower in the third quarter compared to the second quarter.

What’s the difference with famous diamonds?

Famous diamonds are actually not a part of investment portfolios. It’s the highest category concerning rarity and value. These famous diamonds generally owe their fame to the fact that they were owned by a famous person or been on a classic painting. Examples include the Hope Diamond, Millennial Star and Koh-i-Noor.

The exceptional diamonds are often incomparable, unaffordable and unsellable, which makes them less interesting for an investment portfolio. They usually end up in an auction house where they go under the hammer for absurd record prices.
