$1 MILLION PER CARAT: The New Standard for Colored Diamonds

A “stratospheric” level have been launched and triggered by the desire for a secure hedge in the uncertain world of the jewel industry. According to the report of the New York Times, the value of the big, colored and/or unusual diamonds has been raised to the bar of a new standard. And that is considered to have the possibility of no return, any time soon, as what they have been before. With the facts laid, the expanding appraisal of the previous colored gems has been more stellar and dramatic than the previous year. The small stone of white diamond less than three carats has increased its value into 8-33.5 percent in market since 2004. Apart from that, 77% increased has been marked for the three-carat diamonds, an additional of more than 140% for four-carat diamonds and 112 percent increased for the five-carat diamonds – according to one analyst. An evidence for this is the 14.8 carat orange diamond that has been sold for $35.5 million – more than $2 million carat. It is considered the largest fancy vivid orange diamond in the world which is auctioned and billed with the name of “The Orange” though no seems to count, Mr. Rahul Kadakia, the head of jewelry of Christies’ (U.S and Geneva) says that the stone “would have made a fraction of this price” as notably for a decade ago.

One may think that it’s only a dream as the prices are so high. But with the large diamonds gaining such price, undoubtedly the collectors and investors held unto their value. The reasons behind are the factors of the rarity of the gems particularly with their color. It also pushed with the desire of wealthy investors to branch out their profiles/ portfolios with tangible assets over the volatile equity markets. This has been proven with how large diamonds provide good return on investments as much as recent years can tell.

Just as how Mr. Kadakia puts it, “There would always be a market for stones from 1 carat to 10 carat, but at 50-100 carats we are looking at an elite buying field, and the rarer they are, the better they fare.” With the continuous climbing of colored diamonds, it is no wonder that the market can see that the supply is dwindling.  And instance is the The Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine, known to produce more than 90 percent of the most natural pink diamonds in the world, is most likely to be closed in 2020.

As this $1 million per carat has been making headlines, most of the investors are quite surprised on how high their value is. Such as can be quoted from John Glaz, a diamond wholesaler and seasoned bidder – “I have seen the demand for these rare and beautiful stones continue to grow over the past years. The perception that they may become extinct is not too distant future”.

Certainly, wealthy individuals do own diamond stones as fashion jewelries. But the trend of using these gemstones is evidently for investment of a balanced portfolio; and they keep on growing. An initial demand is said to be from the Asia-Pacific region but most of the new investors came from Europe and Russia, according to Alain Vandenborre – The chairman and founder of exchange.

He adds it with a statement of “We are confident to double the amount of diamond funds in 2014. Our portfolios have performed between plus 3 percent to plus 10 percent for the first half of 2013, though it is early to see existing clients topping up in their initial portfolio. What is currently encouraged is to have prominent clients that would see them as friends.”

Mr. Mike Nekta a diamond dealer in New York City is quite often hired by investors to locate precious and high quality diamonds.

“The request for larger or rarer or colored diamonds has tripled since 2008. The demand is growing and the supply is naturally limited. With prices claiming at this rate I sometime find myself reselling the same stone to new investors”

Pave or Micro Pave Ring – Which Your Partner Will Adore?

Micro Pave is said to be the highly precise setting of very small diamonds using a microscope. Micro pave engagement rings are more detailed in terms of pave-set design. The design is considered by the setting of a large number of the smallest possible diamonds along the band.

Micro pave rings are even more delicate and intricate than regular pave settings as the individual stones are so small that they appear to blend together and create extraordinary fire. And since the diamonds are smaller than a traditional pave setting, the surface is much smoother and less likely to rub against other fingers. Micro pave engagement rings are a great choice if you are looking for a sparkling engagement ring with a more complex band design.

Both pave and micro pave utilize small diamonds called “melee”, to coat entire sections of jewelry, most often rings.

The cost of pave and micro pave engagement rings can be vary depending on the design you want, Though smaller stones are less expensive with larger ones, the sophistication of the design is defined to craft and may add up the cost of the ring.
