The differences between coloured diamonds and colourless diamonds are intrinsically big. In value, rarity and aesthetics, there is a big difference. Nevertheless, investing in coloured or colourless diamonds is quite similar with a couple common features. Buying diamonds is a process where a few objective parameters should be taken into consideration.
The rarity of colourless diamonds
Only 0,01% of the diamond market consist of ‘Fancy’ coloured diamonds. The rarity of this type of diamonds makes the price outlook positive given the limited supply and high demand. This is different in the colourless diamond market. That is why it is interesting to invest in the rarest types of colourless diamonds. Therefore, let yourself be advised and assisted by experts who have the correct knowledge. So, buying diamonds with a certain clarity level, weight, size and quality is important.
Estimation based on the 4C’s
Usually a diamond is estimated based on the 4C’s, who inspect the different properties of a diamond. The 4C’s are colour, carat, clarity and cut. Buying and selling diamonds stand on these elements. The brighter the colour, the bigger, the more pure and higher cut quality, the higher value it will be. The estimation of the correct value is always done by comparing the characteristics with the other diamonds on the market. Buying diamonds with rare features is therefore a smart move.
Security thanks to the official certificate
There are a lot of different laboratories in the diamond sector who examine and estimate the diamonds’ value based on the 4C’s. The characteristics are objectively researched and the results are found in an official certificate. The certificate describes in detail the characteristics that determine the value of the diamond without referring to the monetary value of the diamond. The certificate is important for all investors who want to buy diamonds.
From an investor perspective, you definitely want a third party to verify the diamond, so you do not only have to rely on the seller. Therefore, it is important to be able to trust an objective and scientific laboratory. BNT Diamonds only sells diamonds that are classified and tested by one of the most renowned and biggest laboratories: GIA: Gemological Institute of America, HRD: High Diamond Council or IGI: International Gemological Institute.
