Should I buy a loose diamond?

07 Jul 21

The demand and therefore the value of loose diamonds is rising!

Although gold is still one of the more popular investments, we’ve noticed a renewed interest in loose diamonds for investment in recent years.


The most recent study by De Beers (Diamond Insight Report by De Beers 2020) shows that Indian investors are among the largest buyers of loose diamonds in the world. India’s growing economy and strong population growth are leading to an increased demand for gems and thus loose diamonds. It’s even expected that global demand for diamonds will exceed the available supply.

The outlook for this type of investment is very positive, but there are some important points that you need to consider when buying loose diamonds. Despite the usual certificates, trading loose diamonds is not always straightforward.

The price to buy loose diamonds

When considering if you should buy loose diamonds, it’s best to do so when you have sufficient knowledge and experience to estimate their value or when you have the support of a specialist in this field. Even if loose diamonds come with the necessary certificates and official valuation, you need to negotiate the final purchase price as a potential investor. Any negotiation strategy to buy loose diamonds should be determined based on the 4 Cs: cut, clarity, colour, and carat. These parameters determine the final value of the diamond. Again, we advise you to consult a specialist you trust.

Buy-back value of a loose diamond

In addition to the purchase price, defining the potential repurchase price (buy-back value) of loose diamonds is also a challenge! The repurchase price will vary from merchant to merchant. In an ideal situation, you would recover 95% of the current market value. For smaller loose diamonds, it will generally be less. It’s important that you negotiate this buy-back price before you purchase the loose diamond.
