What does the diamond market look like?
China, India and the Middle East are the ones who have been particularly responsible for lighting the fuse on the demand side of the diamond market. For example, these days 40% of all Chinese city women get married with a diamond engagement ring. Twenty years ago this was 0%. However, the supply side has remained stable, as no new large diamond mines have been added over recent years. Even if one was found tomorrow, the start-up would take at least 10 to 12 years. This combination of factors increases the market prices.
Countries like China, Russia and India have regarded diamonds as a fully-fledged investment for quite some time. Investors in Europe and the United States are now also starting to come out of the woodwork.
How do I go about investing in diamonds?
Investing in diamonds is a safe investment in a stable market. It is therefore important to consult reliable specialists, who will be able to help you find the ideal investment. A nice budget is also of importance to your portfolio. A €100,000 diamond ring naturally has more investment potential than a €1000 ring. However, this does not mean investment diamonds need to be of the rarest quality or have the highest price tag. After all, rare diamonds would be the hardest to sell. Good quality diamonds are easier to sell and will proportionally increase in value faster than the rarest types.
