The essence of a diamond as investment

12 Jul 21
  • The biggest diamond is not necessarily the most valuable.
  • Invest only in certified diamonds to invest with certainty.
  • BNT Diamonds verifies the diamond’s valuation and saleability.

Long term thinkers were already convinced: a diamond as investment, still a smart move! Investment diamonds do not decrease in value. More and more diamond mines are closing, which leads to a dwindling stock. This in turn leads to a shortage, ensuring that the circulating diamonds increase in value. BNT Diamonds gladly sheds light on the essence of a diamond as investment.

It is a misconception that diamonds are extremely rare, though. This is only the case for large, pure and clear diamonds, which are rarely found. On the other hand, there are many smaller, less perfect diamonds that are still of sufficient quality to meet the criteria of a proper investment diamond. The biggest diamond is thus not necessarily the most valuable. Are you considering buying a diamond as investment, then you need to focus on the 4 C’s, known as the characteristics to determine the quality of a diamond. They give you an idea of the quality and are very useful in identifying a diamond.

The cut, colour, clarity and carat are thus very decisive factors when buying a diamond as investment. Do you want certainty? Go for certified diamonds. The certificate also has a beneficial effect on the value of your diamond, since the buyer has a written guarantee that the gem has been inspected by a renowned and unbiased laboratory. For a maximum valuation and saleability of your investment, most white investment diamonds are round brilliants. A coloured diamond as investment, for one, generally has a ‘fancy’ cut, such as a princess or oval cut. Of course, every rule has its exceptions. Therefore, the necessary knowledge and assistance are a must-have when you want to buy a diamond as investment.

Of course, every type of investment is liable to the capricious nature of the market and the interplay between supply and demand. However, you can be certain of a stable investment with a diamond as investment. Even if the value of the diamond would not increase exponentially, you won’t see a downturn in the value of your diamond.

This means, in a worst-case-scenario, you will likelier have a break-even than a loss. Fortunately, an increase in a diamond’s value is foreseen for the following years. For those who want to invest for the long term, diamonds are still a very smart move.

For many years BNT Diamonds has bought their diamonds directly at the source. All of very high-quality and with certification. Would you like to receive more information about our investment diamonds? Do not hesitate to contact us.
