At the bottom of the scale of colored diamonds, there are brown, gray, yellow diamonds. At mid-level, you have the bright yellow diamonds and bright orange diamonds. The rarest and most expensive colored diamonds are those with a pure, green, purple, pink, blue and red color. However, while brown diamonds are considered to be the cheapest in their class, a 10-carat brown diamond would nevertheless be a rare item. It should be noted that this ranking is very widespread. Knowing that each diamond is unique, you can also rely on other criteria. The goal as investors will be to find a diamond that is within your budget, which is sought after and known, but not too rare or too mundane. In addition, there are some basic elements and recommendations that you must respect.
Guidelines for investing in diamonds of color
In addition to general instructions on how to buy investment diamonds such as the purchase of diamonds certified GIA, etc., there are certain technical specifications regarding the diamonds themselves that you need to make sure.
The GIA certificate
If you do not know what a GIA certificate is, it should be pointed out that this is the only way to really know what you are buying. Being a recognized laboratory to certify the value of a diamond, the GIA issues a certificate that goes with a diamond that is somehow its identity. Make sure that the diamond in which you want to invest disposes of it, as the buyer will probably want to demand it.
According to most investors, low clarity diamonds are more difficult to sell. And yet, this kind of diamond has its own clientele and can be used for an investment. Indeed, most people want to vary the color of the diamonds they buy without necessarily taking into account the clarity, especially the diamond collectors who wish to have as many colors of diamonds in their collection. The fact that these diamonds are more difficult to sell will alert your vigilance. The best value and the most commercial is the VS2.
The way in which the diamond has been cut
The people tend to confuse the size with the shape. When talking about size, it is necessary to refer to the quality of its polish (the precision in which the diamond has been cut). Does the diamond have the ideal fire and luster? Is it as brilliant as it should be? Many investors prefer to go for the round brilliant cutdiamond. But this also should be accompanied by a certificate for its valuation.
