Physical Hard Assets as a Store of Value
Natural fancy color diamonds of strong color and good quality are some of the rarest commodities on the planet. They are so rare that they make up a mere 1% of all of the global diamond production. Literally millions of dollars worth of color diamonds can fit in the palm of your hand. Historically only royality and the ultra wealthy could collect color diamonds. Their status gave them access to extremely rare, one-of-a-kind gems that could be enjoyed and passed down through generations. A simple way to preserve family wealth and status.
Today wealth preservation is a priority for more than just the ultra rich. Many investors have concerns regarding depreciating currency values, low yielding saving accounts, and uncertainty within the stock, bond, and real-estate markets. For them natural fancy color diamonds with their innate rarity and historic lack of volitilty make them a compelling choice for diversification. In the last several decades, color diamonds have continued to grow in popularity and increase in value.
At Guildhall Wealth Management we assist clients in achieving long term success in owning color diamonds. The strategy is simple; take the guesswork out of purchasing a natural fancy color diamond. Guildhall clients can select their diamond from a collection of expertly chosen rare natural fancy color diamonds.
What has been increasing the value of color diamonds? Investors and collectors are vying for the limited supply of high grade natural fancy color diamonds. According to Russel Shor, Senior Industry Expert at the Gemology Institute of America “Of the millions of diamonds mined each year, only .001% can qualify as fancy colors …and only a handful can achieve the top grades of Intense or Vivid”. There are only a minute number investment-grade color diamonds availble each year. For example, The Fancy Color Research Foundation (FCRF) estimates that less than 100 internally flawless radiant cut vivid yellow diamonds between 1 and 3 carats come to market annually.
Performance is proportionate to the rarity of the diamond. According to the FCRF, color diamonds have experienced unprecedended growth in the last decade. Between January 2005 and July 2015, 1 carat Fancy Vivid Yellow diamonds increased 95.8% while 1 carat Fancy Intense Pink diamonds increased 279%.
