They say that the colors have emotional attributions to them. The color blue denotes intelligence, trust, and serenity, among others. The true science behind color and emotion is complicated, but most can agree that blue is one of the most dominant colors. This is particularly true when it comes to diamonds.
Naturally black diamonds are among the most rare gems in the world. Whether it is an addition to your collection or looking for an alternative investment, these stones have been steadily increasing in demand. But how are they valued and how valuable are they really?
In this article we will be looking at:
- How do black diamonds get their color
- The types of grading these stones can receive
- What to look for when deciding on a purchase/investment
- Should you actually invest in a black diamond?
Having compared a plethora of tangible assets in one of our previous articles, you may now see potential opportunity in a new diamond investment. A big question arises however, how can you determine “investment grade diamonds” from the rest, especially if you are a beginner? Arpège Diamonds is here to help.
Fancy Colored Diamonds can truly be top grade investments, and much like fine art, the more unique the piece the higher the value; especially if you have the patience to wait for the opportune moment to sell. It is then, and only then, that you can realize truly astronomical returns on your investment.
Colored diamonds have been admired for their beauty and value for hundreds of years. Within the last few decades, many types of colored diamonds have been growing in value, but one hue of colored diamond has outpaced all others. Since 2005, pink diamond price has increased by an average of 15% per year.
In April of 2017, a diamond sold at Sotheby's Hong Kong auction for $71.2 million dollars. At 59.6-carats, it was certainly a large stone, but not nearly large enough to justify its record-smashing winning bid. What made this particular diamond so unique? It was pink.
Pink, it combines the burning passion of red, with the purity of white, and with Valentine’s Day being just around the corner, what better way to surprise the one you love, than with a beautiful pink diamond.
With a massive 600% increase in value during the last decade however, these gems can be much more than just a valuable gift, they can be an investment. But just like your loved one, no one pink diamond is alike, more specifically; these stones can be categorized into 4 color categories based on their grading. So which one is right for you?
Red is an iconic color that can symbolize love, strength, and passion. In history, red diamonds are one of the most rare stones in the world. They’re found primarily in Australia, Brazil, and Africa and are so exclusive that only approximately 30 red diamonds have ever been found!
