WHY COLOURED DIAMONDS?
...Offer long term capital growth, wealth
preservation, a hedge against inflation, estate
planning benefits and remain one of the world’s
most unique, tangible assets.
...Have weathered 3 recessions in roughly 30
years and have held their value during that
...Have a solid history of steady appreciation
and they are expected to continue increasing in
value over time.
...Are a completely private asset class so there
is no public record available in cases of civil
action, divorce, lawsuits, etc.
...Over the past 30 years the price of coloured
diamonds have consistently doubled in value at
the dealer level every 5-7 years.
...Are the perfect model of supply and demand.
Some of the largest mines in the world are
petering out and closing. DeBeers closed 3 mines
in 2006 and Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine, which
produces 90 - 95% of the world's pink diamonds
is said to be finished producing bey 2018 -
2020. Once their production of pink diamonds
ceases, supplies should dry right up. Demands
increase every year and supplies are dwindling,
making this a commodity that screams
...Compared to gold, silver and real estate, can
easily be taken anywhere in the world and sold.
In a 2012 survey, married men were asked, “Would
you sell your wife’s engagement ring today for
what you originally paid?”
94% responded, “No” and explained they knew the
diamond was worth more than when they first
“If we continue to diamond mine at this rate we
shall run out within 20 years.”

"Diamonds have been a pretty good investment,
but only coloured diamonds. If you want great
returns on diamonds - you want coloured diamonds
- yellow and pink diamonds. That's what's
working these days."

“There are not enough diamonds to satisfy
one-tenth of the new billionaires that every
month are created in China.”
