Investing in fancy colored diamonds is an opportunity that investors should consider. In fact, ever since the prices of fancy colored diamonds were first recorded, they have increased in value every year, with colored diamonds surpassing all other hard asset classes for several years now.

So, what do you need to know if investing in colored diamonds is a wealth management choice you’re looking to pursue? Traditional diamonds, of course, have a foothold in the engagement ring industry, but what about their gemstone peers? There are several things you should consider when seeking to invest in colored diamonds.

  1. Colored diamonds are a stable investment 

Global economic unrest has caused many investors to rethink their portfolio. Diversifying away from traditional investments into more tangible ones, such as colored diamonds, which have shown to increase in value over time, is an attractive option to investors. Colored diamonds are a form of investment that has demonstrated stable long-term investment returns.  That’s comforting to many investors in today’s financial climate.

  1. Know the 4 C’s

The American Gem Society reports that the 4 C’s of a diamond, particularly when it comes to diamond grading, are: Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat.

When it comes to cut, the more precise it is, “the more captivating the diamond is to the eye.” As for color, fancy colored diamonds occur in a range of hues. Diamond clarity involves the presence or absence of characteristics called inclusions in the stone — and a clarity grade is determined by the impact of these inclusions on the look of the diamond. Finally, carat is the diamond’s physical weight as measured in metric carats.

  1. Stick to your budget

Your budget will help you determine what kind of fancy colored diamond to invest in. Relatively common colors include browns, greys, and yellows.  Pink diamonds, on the other hand, are less common and will likely necessitate a larger budget.

  1. Elements of the fancy colored rainbow

We’ve already determined that color is one of the 4 C’s of a diamond. But did you know that there are specific elements involved in the color grading of fancy colored diamonds? These elements are Hue, Tone, and Saturation. Hue refers to the main color of the diamond, and there are 27 hues in all. Tone refers to how light or dark the color or hue of the diamond in question is — ranging from Very Light to Very Dark. Finally, saturation is determined by the strength of the color of the stone. Lighter tones range from Faint to Vivid, and darker tones go from Dark to Deep.

  1. Supplies of rare diamonds are dwindling

Some colored diamonds are incredibly rare. For example, the majority of pink diamonds come from the Argyle diamond mine in Australia.  Mineral resources at this mine continue to fall, with the mine slated to close by 2020. In short, demand for colored diamonds is already outpacing supply, and it’s expected that demand will continue to outweigh supply in the years to come.  That means it’s a perfect time to invest in fancy colored diamonds and have an asset that will only become more sought-after over time.
