Gemstones have outperformed many other Luxury investment options and the demand for colored stones like rubies and sapphires continues to grow in the markets. The Bonham sales in London at the end of April 2019 got bids beyond estimation.
A 17.43-carat Kashmir sapphire that was owned by a European noble fetched £723,063, while, the previous estimates for the stone was in the range of £300,000 to £400,000. Jewelry that was sold for the astonishing price was a Sri Lankan sapphire necklace, which was estimated at £120,000 to £180,000 but was sold for £287,562.
It was 34.59-carat stone dated around 1935. In 2015, a rare 25.59-carat ruby was auctioned for $30m. It was called the Sunrise Ruby.
The growth in popularity of such investments can be attributed to their affiliation and endorsements by celebrities and royals.
British Royals have always showcased their desirability for rare gemstone like the deep blue sapphires that belonged to the Duchess of Cambridge. Many collectors hoard such items as a symbol of luxury for financial hedging.
It can be a part of a lifestyle that creates aesthetically true looks. It is associated with happiness but it is necessary to get genuine antique stones or vintage jewelry to get the true value of your investment.
Investors should be careful while trying to buy diamonds of millions of dollars as they cannot estimate the real value of these stones by just looking at them.
Some specific type of stones are highly desirable but are available only in the secondary markets like the Kashmir blue sapphires, emeralds, and rubies, as the mines of some of these rare stones have depleted and buyers seeking ethical ways to get the rare varieties may find it difficult to get the right seller.
Awareness related to the rarity and newer marketing strategies have boosted consumer confidence, where the new systems of verifications and certifications enhance steadfastness and promote transparency in the sector. The laboratory-based tests and gemological analysis provide consistent ways to identify the true value of the stones.
Diamonds hold a small space for storage but can be used to get greater value in exchange. It is easy to transfer the asset from one place to another and it can be stored for many years without worrying about damage or loss of value.
Most diamond investments are locked for years in safe as a hedge against market volatility and inflation. It is like a physical commodity that can get a hike in price due to inflation and it is a highly durable investment. Hence, several high-net-worth investors hold diamonds or jewelry made from precious stones.
Some investors may hold a single stone for years to gain in the future, or they may get a jewelry set of low-cost gemstones, which can be worn at certain occasions or auctioned when the price grows. Many young buyers seek a combination of retro looks and modern styles that promote versatility.
