Investment Grade Natural Coloured Diamonds Are Appreciating an Average of 15-35% Annually

Before you decide to make an investment, in whatever industry it may be, you need to have some indication that your money will not only have a good chance of remaining safe, but that it will also appreciate significantly over time.

For a long while, stocks and bonds were safe enough for many until recent financial turmoil jolted serious investors worldwide and made them realize that their hard earned money needed to be put somewhere more secure. As a result, now more than ever, tangible hard assets such as Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds have become very appealing investment opportunities.

In order to demonstrate a NCDs price appreciation over time, we will illustrate here two types of price results. The first section are prices that have been realized at the world’s largest auction houses (which can be easily verified by viewing Sotheby’s and Christie’s websites) and are more often than not only relevant for important and somewhat expensive stones.

Where as our second section focuses on coloured diamonds which are more affordable to the average everyday investor. Taking into consideration that there is no market price list for Natural Coloured Diamonds publicly available anywhere, Northern Cross Diamonds has pulled most of this data from our own in house sales data.

Natural Coloured Diamonds Results in Auction Houses

Sotheby’s and Christie’s are two of the most famous auction houses in the world and have sold many impressive Colour Diamonds over the years, including dozens of record-breaking stones. In just the past six years alone, a total of fifteen price records were set and broken. Despite the quality and sizes of the stones sold, even the experts in the field were floored by the results realized.

The first example uses three nearly identical Fancy Intense Pink Diamonds that are relatively close to one another in size:

  • In 2003, a Fancy Intense Pink 3.58 Carat Diamond was sold for $115,000 per carat.
  • In 2007, a Fancy Intense Pink 3.86 Carat diamond was sold for $390,000 per carat.
  • In 2010, a Fancy Intense Pink 4.59 Carat diamond was sold for an amazing $625,000 per carat.

Conclusion: The price appreciation based on these examples alone shows an absolutely mind blowing 443% appreciation in only 7 years!

A Group of Natural Pink Argyle Diamonds
Other Amazing Auction Results

Here is a phenomenal example of the type of results that can be achieved when dealing with incredible rare and one-a-kind investment pieces:

  • In 2006 a Fancy Intense Blue 3.17 Carat Diamond was sold for $1,012,000 USD
  • In 2011 THE EXACT SAME Fancy Intense Blue 3.17 Carat Diamond was now sold for $2,394,878

That is an amazing 110% price increase in only five years of Investment!

Finally, a wonderful example from of how Natural Fancy Colours are truly Priceless as seen by this beautiful stone sold at Sotheby’s:

  • In 2013 a Fancy Vivid 0.50ct Purplish Pink was sold for $338,500 USD

However, the amazing part about this transaction is that this stone was only estimated to sell for $80,000! The fact that it sold for over FOUR times its estimated value for a half carat stone goes to prove several points:

A. Even smaller sized stones are considered fantastic investments.

B. Because these stones are technically priceless and one-of-a-kind, if a someone wants it for their collection they will pay whatever is necessary in order to obtain it.

Price Increases of More Commonly Traded FCD’s for the “Every Day” Investor

The coloured diamonds that Northern Cross Diamonds has had the pleasure of owning over the years have seen some mind boggling numbers.

However, below are several examples of prices that more commonly traded stones have sold for which will give you some perspective in terms of diamond investments that the average investor would make. For example (based on our own in house sales data):

0.50ct SI+ Fancy Intense Pink Diamond

  • In 2003 was priced/sold at roughly $15,000
  • In 2008 was priced/sold at roughly $30,000
  • In 2014 is priced/sold at roughly $70,000

As the prices indicate, the closer that we approach the closure of the Argyle Mine, the more rare these high quality stones become and the faster in which they increase in price (like a proverbial snowball effect).

Above is a price chart which displays an amazing %375 price appreciation for Half Carat Pink Diamonds over only the past 10 years.

Now Let’s Compare Yellow Diamonds

2.00ct VS+ Fancy Intense Yellow Diamond

  • In 2003 was priced/sold at roughly $10,000
  • In 2014 is priced/sold at roughly $27,000

As the prices indicate, the closer that we approach the closure of the Argyle Mine, the more rare these high quality stones become and the faster in which they increase in price (like a proverbial snowball effect).

Above is a price chart which displays an amazing 375% price appreciation for Half Carat Pink Diamonds over only the past 10 years.

I have used Northern Cross Diamonds for the last couple years. I have a full time job, rental properties, stocks and mutual funds, yet I am always looking for new investment opportunities.

They are always there to answer questions when I am curious on making a new investment and the experience has been nothing but great!

My husband and I chose NCD to assist us in finding the perfect engagement ring that would compliment my style. We mostly dealt with Stephen who was very knowledgeable and really took the time to listen to what I was looking for and offered a really great selection of options to choose from. Thank you Stephen and NCD; I couldn't be any happier with my brand new canary yellow diamond ring. You wouldn't believe the compliments and interest that people give it. I just love it!! Thank you again for everything!

I found Northern Cross Diamonds because I was looking for a colored diamond for an engagement ring to propose with. There are not many companies that have colored diamonds but they have quite a few. After considering for a couple of weeks, I decided to contact them to discuss the diamond I was looking at. The guy I worked with, Stephen, was very kind and helped me with the purchase process. I even had to ask them to ship my stone across the world to China.  After I received it I had no doubt about the high quality of their products. I appreciate Stephen and Northern Cross to help me to achieve my perfect proposal plan. I am very happy to have done buisness with them and I will definately recommend Northern Cross Diamonds to anyone looking to get married or who would like to add more stones for their collection. Again, thank you Stephen
