Expensive diamonds may be beautiful – but out of reach for many
When Marilyn Monroe said diamonds are a girl’s best friend, she may have been a bit of the mark. According to Stanislas de Quercize, chief executive of jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels the big and expensive diamonds are bought by discerning businessmen from around the world. And they don’t want to adorn their bodies with these sparkly rocks, most of them have a collection of expensive diamonds.
Buying diamonds can be a very stable investment as it is one of the few commodities in the world that will accrue value, regardless of what happens in the market place. If you are buying diamonds as an investment the most important factor is not size, contrary to what many people would think. It is the colour and clarity that sets an ordinary diamond apart from a great diamond. Diamonds with colour ranging between A and D, if you are going for white diamonds, are the most valuable. Diamonds also come in a range of colours like blue, green, red and pink. However, these are much rarer and if you were lucky enough to stumble upon one of these be ready to dig deep into your pockets.
