The Value of Fancy Color Diamond Investments

Fancy Color Diamonds are considered a multi-function asset class. Color diamonds are a treasure. Their intensity and beauty are so great that diamond lovers, investors, and dealers are constantly in search of these rare beauties. Fancy color diamonds are the most concentrated form of wealth on the planet. To read more about the beauty and wonders of colored diamonds, read this article by the GIA found here:

In addition to their eternal beauty and customizable wearability, diamonds are a firm investment. For centuries, diamonds have been a sign of power, wealth, and status. The ancient Romans and Greeks believed that diamonds were tears cried by the gods or splinters from falling stars. Romans believed that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds. Diamonds have been worn by royalty and noblemen as a status symbol, believed to give the wearer great courage during battle, and cure many ailments such as fatigue and mental illness. Diamonds have been valued and coveted for thousands of years. There is evidence that diamonds were being collected and traded in India as early as the fourth century BC. In the first century AD, the Roman naturalist Pliny is quoted as having said, “Diamond is the most valuable, not only of precious stones, but of all things in this world.” The first known use of a diamond engagement ring took place in 1477, when Archduke Maxmillian of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy a gold ring featuring an M spelled out in diamonds. In short, today’s fervor for diamonds is not in the least bit a new phenomenon. They are undeniably worthy of awe. Diamonds have long been a viable alternative investment option in place of other assets such as stocks, bonds, or precious metals. Unlike colorless diamonds, color diamonds do not need to be a specific size or quality in order to be extremely valuable. The color is the main factor. If the diamond possesses a rare and strong color, it can be a very wise investment. Since the beginning of the 21st century, color diamonds in particular have become widely recognized as an important investment commodity worldwide. The rarest diamond color, which are classified as very high pricing, are red diamonds. High-range colors include pink, purple, violet, green, and blue diamonds. Mid-range diamonds include Intense and Vivid yellow and orange, while lower range colors are grey, brown, and Fancy yellow diamonds.

Fancy Color Diamonds are incredibly scarce, therefore, naturally increasing their value. As the already small number of color diamonds begins to diminish, the value of natural color diamonds could not possibly decrease. Of the few colored investment-grade diamonds, Argyle Pink Diamonds have demonstrated the most unbelievable results. Heartbreakingly, the Argyle Mine closed in November of 2020, limiting market availability. They therefore stand out as one of the most highly recommended investment stones available. They are so rare that Josephine Archer, the business manager of Argyle diamonds, stated:

Diamonds, overall, are in higher demand than supply. When compared to color diamonds the demand and supply gap is even more dramatic. The way color diamonds are formed through millions, perhaps billions of years, nature itself has made Fancy Color Diamonds finite. This puts these stunning gems, and their investors, at a terrific advantage.
