Investing in Natural Pink Diamonds

There is no argument about it! Fancy Intense pink have outperformed the majority of investments globally! This includes major global indices, other natural resources, as well as some very well known global companies. Similar to other Fancy Color Diamonds, Pink diamonds have also several depths of color; Light Pink, Fancy Light Pink, Fancy Pink, Fancy Intense Pink, Fancy Vivid Pink, Fancy Deep Pink. According to public available data, Fancy Intense and Fancy Vivid Diamonds have outperformed all other Pink diamonds, balancing both value appreciation and liquidity requirement by investors.

Back in the 1990’s when fancy color diamonds were not very well known, other than to the affluent, a 1.50ct Fancy Intense Purplish pink sold for a modest price of $11,572 per carat, on October 1, 1995. Going forward 20 years, and a 1.86ct fancy Intense pink sold for $377,800 per carat; over 32 times the original price sold for (3,164%). After careful consideration and long research, I have decided to compare it to global major indices. I had to get the courage to also compare it to the world renowned Warren Buffet and his Investment vehicle, Berkshire Hathaway.

See for yourself:

One of the main reasons for Fancy Intense Pink going up in value in such a way is the Argyle Mine. The mine produces 90% of global pink diamonds. According to Rio tinto, the mine owner, the mine will be closing by 2020. This will greatly affect the global supply of Pink diamonds; which will further affect the value of pink diamonds. The other catalyst in such price appreciation is the fact that the global investment community is aware of the wealth preservation diamonds contribute, and is becoming a favorite Alternative investment class.

Above is the 1.86ct Fancy Intense Pink that sold for the world record price of $702,773.

As of May 31, 2015 a 1.00 Fancy Intense Pink, radiant shape, with a VS2 clarity, the same as the 1.86ct that broke the record was being offered on the market for $333,000 a slight 12% discount of the world record price. I contribute this difference to the GRAFF diamonds brand behind the 1.86ct pink. Lawrence Graff is known to offer only the top quality diamonds in the world.
