The Truth About Jewelry Investments

The Truth About Jewelry Investments

One of the most common questions I hear is whether buying diamonds can be considered an investment. Let me be clear from the start—I'm not a financial advisor, and I won't offer financial advice. However, I can share insights based on my experience in the jewelry industry.

Many people view jewelry, especially diamonds, as an investment. While diamonds can appreciate in value, it's not guaranteed, and the market can fluctuate. Interestingly, lab-grown diamonds have influenced the market dynamics, introducing new factors to consider.

When it comes to investment potential, colored stones often present more promising opportunities. Genuine colored stones, like rubies, emeralds, and fine blue sapphires, have shown consistent appreciation over time. The key is to find stones of exceptional quality at a fair price from a reputable source.

Size also matters. Larger stones, typically over 1 carat and often over 2 carats, tend to show more significant value appreciation, especially in rare colors like deep blues and vivid reds.

Shopping with reputable dealers is crucial. Some well-known brands may command higher prices due to their name, but that doesn't always translate to better value. Honest pricing and knowledgeable guidance make a significant difference in finding true investment pieces.

I'm excited to announce our upcoming Gem Show, where you'll find exceptional prices and expert knowledge on colored gems. This event is your opportunity to explore investment-grade stones and learn from industry experts. Stay tuned for more details—we can't wait to see you there!
