Duration of ownership
How long one should own a diamond before selling is debatable. Some experts say diamonds lost their resale value after purchase, while some argue the value of a diamond increases in value over time. Diamonds have and retain a market value that is either consistent or increases over time, reports Concierge Diamonds. Depending on the diamond, holding it for long and selling it when demand is high provides a good return on investment.
While demand determines the price of diamonds, so too is the size. The larger the diamond, the better. The reason behind this is because most diamonds are found in small fractions, rather than big solid ones, thus making them rarer, explains Carats Direct. Beyond4Cs adds that prices have an exponential relationship with the carat sizes. For example, if a one carat diamond that is worth $7500, that doesnt mean that a two carat diamond would be worth $15,000.
As the carat size is relates to price, the color of natural diamond is a factor to consider. For example, pure red, pink or blue diamonds are rare. When a diamond with any of these colors is found, because of its scarcity, the price value is high. Natural colored diamonds like the Pink Promise, the Pink Legacy, The Argyle Alpha all have set records prices over the years.
Natural colored diamonds have one thing in common they are all tangible assets. Investors consider them as hard assets that are private in nature and can be carried and moved around. The portability of these assets allows investors to take them anywhere in the world and trade in any currency.
