All the luxuries, it is said that diamonds are the best investment: are small-and easily transportable-, undoubtedly beautiful, very quoted in the global market… and are in danger of extinction.
Six years ago, he visited Jose Davalos Mejia-recognized Mexican jeweler – one very old lady that her grandmother had inherited a 7-carat diamond. “He told me that it needed $300 thousand dollars to save the mortgage on your home. I had carried the stone to various places: in Mexico offered it $150 thousand dollars. in the United States, $200 mil, assuring him that it wasn’t worth more because it was an ‘old Court'”.”
“It was a diamond with a good color and purity; If it went to carve it would be impeccable. I told him that I would buy at 575 thousand dollars. Very surprised by the news, she decided to trust me. I commanded to carve stone in Antwerp, Belgium, and was a beautiful diamond 5 carats was sold in one week. I won a few pesos and Lady I loved until his death.”
This anecdote illustrates how complicated it can be market diamondiferous world, accessible only to knowledgeable, because “with the arrival of the simulators of diamond, it is very difficult to specify if a stone is real or synthetic. Because it is a work of experts, anyone can trick you in buying”, says the CEO of JD jewelers.
Not All Diamonds Are Bright
There is a code that allows even non-experts to understand what the value of your diamond. Its acronym is C4 (and is equivalent to an international standard) that is going to carat (weight in carats), color (color), Clarity (purity), cut (cut). The weight of a diamond is expressed in carats or short for Ct. And 1 carat = 0.2 grams.
Throughout history, diamond has amazed human beings for its beauty and mystery. This stone, a nonrenewable natural resource, is the hardest material that exists in nature. It is also autonomous, individual and unique: none resembles another. It is of gem demanded and most costly in the world.
There are four elements to take into account to determine the quality and cost of a carved diamond, known as the four “Cs” (in English):
Weight (carat). It is measured in carats, and its abbreviation is ct. To know the price of a diamond, you must multiply your weight by Carat price.
Color (colour). The more white, a carved diamond will be more nice, scarce and valuable. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has established an alphabetical system to qualify carved diamonds color: begins with “D”, the whiter (or, rather, colorless) and ending in “Z”, indicating a growing level of yellow or brown tones. These are lower quality diamonds.
Cut (cut). Refers to the proportions of the diamond, whatever its form. These proportions are: the depth of its flag, the height of his Crown and the uniformity and symmetry in all its facets.
Purity (clarity). This feature determines the absence or presence of defects, and the size and number of inclusions (internal marks) inside or on the surface of a cut diamond. The more pure and clean is a carved diamond, brighter and light reflected and-consequently- more scarce and valuable results.
Dávalos-the first gemologist graduated from Mexico by the GIA- explains that “the cut is the only one of the four elements which involved the man’s hand and has been improved, thanks to the technology”.
The expert added: “In Latin America make the mistake of calling bright all diamonds, generically, when it is just a type of court”. Today in addition, there are called fancy cuts: heart, Emerald, Marquise, drop, PEAR, etc.
An Excellent Option To Invest
Diamond ring – the largest global firm producer and marketer of diamonds – evidence which, in 1980, Mexico was the seventh importer of diamonds in the world. Today the country does not even appear in the statistics, despite the fact that, as suppliers of diamonds wholesale in Mexico,JD Jewelers has seen that in times of crisis, people opt for buying diamonds.
“His advantage over other investments is that there is nothing so small in the universe that concentrate such value and beauty“, requires the expert, who added that they are also listed in the international market and they can be transported easily.
A person can take with you, in a small bag, diamonds with a value greater than the $100 million, but can not do the same with a building, a work of art or precious-as gold, Platinum, etc-metal, says expert.
A diamond increases its value with the passage of time. However, “your capital gain is long term. If someone tries to sell the stone a couple years after purchase, it will surely lose money.To capitalize on your investment, you must wait at least 15 or 20 years”.
That, in the future, the diamond will be a much more valuable asset. “It is estimated that by 2050 the existing mines will be exhausted. Today already are scarce, especially in more than 2 k”.Therefore, Davalos recommended buy, first and foremost, a diamond mainly by its size, clear, without considering the other three “Cs”.
Diamonds Size Does Matter
Davalos makes the following recommendations to all those people who want to buy a bright:
Define your budget, to know how much you want to spend.
Choose diamond taking into account:
1) that is as large as possible. Besides that they are harder to find, the price per carat in larger stones grows exponentially.
(2) to be for white (transparent) possible.
(3) that is as pure as possible, with few defects (it is more difficult to find than pure stones white stones).
(4) have the best cut. “Do not fall into the bait of choice, first and foremost, a cut that is attractive because, maybe, tomorrow can change and lose value”.
Go with a trusted jeweler. This is a business by word of mouth and usually a good jeweler ventured not to discredit it.
Request a certificate from the GIA or issued by an authorized third party. To avoid deception and leave is known the stone that speaks the certificate that and not another, diamonds is being recorded with laser beam on the girdle (space between the Pavilion and the Crown) with a serial number that appears on the certificate.
Eye with Internet sales! “There are three companies that traded diamonds across the network: non-legit.“It touched me see stones that are not authentic and, once purchased, the customer cannot claim if these violate with features that promised”.
