Diamonds Have Proven to be Great Investments  

Certain high quality diamonds have proven to exceed investment returns of traditional investments and are second only to gold in price appreciation over the past 10 years.

Carlsbad, CA — Bella Ideale Diamonds, a consulting company that provides strategies for diamond investing, recently published an article that indicates the appreciation potential of select white and colored diamonds. "The article gets very specific about where diamond investors will probably get the best returns in the future," said Paul Buchanan, President of Bella Ideale Diamonds Consulting Services. Details are offered about the size, quality and color of diamonds that should be bought based on the size of an investor's portfolio and tolerance for risk. "It's difficult to find any investments in colored diamonds that have not consistently appreciated in value over the past 30 years. Select white diamonds, the kind we normally think about, have also done well, but have not had the appreciation consistency of colored diamonds," said Buchanan.

Red, blue and pink diamonds are the most expensive and have demonstrated the highest price appreciation of approximately 15% or more annually. In comparison, gold has appreciated at an 18% annual rate for the past 10 years. Larger, higher quality white diamonds in the 3 carat size and larger have produced annual returns of 8% to 11%. The Dow and S&P 500 have achieved less than 3% for the past 10 years.

It is not uncommon to pay $100,000 per carat for an investment quality blue or pink diamond. A lower investment grade 3 carat white diamond will cost approximately $100,000 compared to $300,000 for the same higher quality investment grade diamond. Yellow colored diamonds with good color saturation have also done well and are much more affordable.
