    Start with a Diamond
    Start with Setting
    Jun 30

    loose_diamonds.jpgIn the growing fear of recession many industries are starting to feel a slowdown in business. Not so with diamonds. Diamonds are still proving to be a good investment. In fact, diamonds are actually a perfect recession-proof investment. A good diamond will always only increase in value. A recent report showed that while the purchase of other jewelry items might have decreased slightly diamond jewelry sales continued to increase. There are several reasons for this trend.

    Diamonds are a good investment. The price of diamonds continues to increase even when other investments may go down. This is due in part to the steady demand for diamonds. Diamonds are the precious stone used most often in engagement rings. While the cut and size may vary there is no indication that diamonds will lose their appeal as engagement rings anytime soon.

    The diamond is a status symbol of the rich. Celebrities continue to show off their expensive diamonds keeping them trendy. Wealthy people often purchase diamonds. Financial issues such as recession less affect these people. This allows them to choose several types of investments including diamonds. Not only are diamonds likely to increase in value but they can also be worn as a fashion item.

    Diamonds of all sizes are a good investment. What increases their value is not only the size but also the appearance. Flawless diamonds are very rare and are worth more than diamonds that have even small flaws. The way a diamond is cut also influences the value. A well-cut diamond with many facets creates a certain brilliance that makes the diamond sparkle.

    There are several reasons why diamonds make a good investment. First, they are more likely to increase in value even in times of deflation. While many segments of the marketplace may start to lose money diamonds will typically retain their value and continue to increase in value. The bank does not regulate diamonds so the investment is one that is protected from bank bankruptcy or changes in the market. Because diamonds are traded worldwide they are not dependent on one economy. Instead they hold a steady value around the world.

    Unlike real estate investments, diamonds do not require continual maintenance nor do they require taxes to be continually paid. This makes them inflation-proof as an investment vehicle. Anyone can own a diamond. You need not register a diamond or alert others that you own it. Diamonds last longer than a lifetime so there is no need to worry about it wearing out.

    Of course the greatest joy still comes from wearing large diamonds. Celebrities and wealthy socialites all wear diamonds as a symbol of status and wealth. Diamond jewelers often provide diamond-studded jewelry to celebrities when they attend popular events such as the Oscars. When celebrities get engaged they often show off their new diamond engagement ring, which is typically large and beautiful.

    Many people store their diamonds in a safe at their home or even in a safety deposit box. Expensive diamonds are an attraction to thieves. Wearing diamonds becomes more difficult if you need to get them out of a safety deposit box each time you want to wear them. Diamonds are made for wearing. They do not decrease in value and are easily cleaned. Care must be taken to make sure that they don’t get scratched. However, diamonds are one of the hardest surfaces known to man and are not easily scratched.

    Diamonds should be insured just like other expensive items. Get a certificate for your diamond. The certificate or diamond grading report is a document that is made by a gemologist. The gemologist evaluates the diamond using a high-powered jewelers loop or microscope. The gemologist will analyze the diamond to determine its weight, shape, dimensions, color and other characteristics. He or she will attempt to determine the grade of the diamond. The grade will help value the diamond later on. The certificate should not be confused with an appraisal.

    An appraisal is a statement from a jeweler or gemologist that puts a value or value range on the diamond. The appraisal takes into account the weight, shape, size and other items but is limited to the subjective opinion of the jeweler. There are many reasons why a jeweler may try to either under-value a diamond or over inflate its value. When determining the value of diamonds always use the certificate that should always accompany your diamond. Always use a reputable gemologist to grade your diamond. Determine the approximate value of the diamond so that you can insure it properly.

    When purchasing a diamond a certificate should accompany it. Review the certificate to ensure its validity. For large diamonds always get a reputable gemologist to analyze the stone before you purchase it. Most large diamonds have been made into jewelry such as pendants, rings, pins or tiaras.

      Gold performs well during the current economic crisis.In these times there is a flight to quality towards real tangible assets. Unlike stocks diamonds will never be worthless, at the very least you are left with the physical asset..

      This is a really good summary, I located your site looking around bing for a related subject matter and came to this. I couldnt come across to much other material on this summary, so it was nice to locate this one. I will certainly be returning to check out some other articles that you have another time.

      But i have heard that the appreciation in gold is much more than in a diamond and diamond appreciates over a very longer time say 10-15 years.

      F*ckinˇ¦ remarkable issues here. I am very satisfied to look your article. Thank you so much and i am having a look forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?

      This article is very suspect. For starters, no two diamonds are alike so there will never be a set reference price for diamonds like there is for silver and gold. Also, diamonds sell well above what they are worth, and the appraisal often represents replacement value, which is also well above what they are actually worth. Try selling that $6000 engagement and see what you get for it… not good, i’ll tell you that right now. An ounce of gold is worth an ounce of gold, same for silver. Also, we have yet to create gold and silver in a laboratory. We can create rubies, emeralds, and sapphires… and yes, we can create diamonds as well. IF you’re filthy rich and looking to diversify your holdings, sure, buy investment grade diamonds.. for the rest of us, stick with gold and silver.
