Are diamonds crisis resistant?
As shown in this graph, the price of diamonds increases over time. It is generally believed that this upward price movement is even likely to accelerate in the future.
Diamonds, moreover, are fully crisis resistant, as can be seen on the chart below. Whereas all the traditional components of an investment portfolio, such as shares, bonds, real estate and future contracts, crashed during the financial crisis of 2008, polished diamonds were hardly affected.
