If you’re looking to buy gemstones as an investment, we recommend purchasing a cut stone. A raw diamond, or other raw gemstone, may be lower in purchase price but quality assessment of a raw gemstone demands considerable in-depth expertise. The true value of your purchase is therefore, far less transparent. Moreover, a raw gemstone loses a significant share of its original carat mass during the cutting process.
One of the key things to look out for when buying your gemstone as an investment, is the certificate. After all, the price of a gemstone is determined by its worth. This in turn depends on factors such as the carat mass, clarity, colour and cut quality – also known as the 4 Cs. Equally important is that this certificate is issued by accredited laboratories, such as the GIA, HRD or IGI. The GemLab is frequently use for gemstones. After all, such a certificate proves the gemstone’s authenticity, and enables you to track its value. At BNT Diamonds we only buy certified gemstones for maximum surety.
