The primary purpose of investing is, of course, to make money. Whether using your money to make more money is your primary job, or if you’re just investing to build a retirement fund, you are probably just concerned about making the most of your money and getting a good return on your investments.
However, it can get a bit boring to stare at numbers and figures, charts and graphs, and make the same types of investments day in and day out. It can also start to feel a bit like you’re just moving around money that doesn’t exist, when you’re not actually purchasing anything but shares in companies. If you’re feeling the urge to invest something you can actually see and hold in your hands, why not invest in colored diamonds?
It may sound like a strange idea at first, but colored diamonds are actually highly prized around the world and therefore retain their value very well. In fact, in the past thirty years the value of colored diamonds has not dropped, making them a very secure and low risk investment. They will probably even increase in value in the near future, because less colored diamonds are currently being mined. Many diamond mines are closing, and new mines are not opening fast enough to replace them. This means recover of the valuable gemstones is slowing down, so they will become more rare. When something is more rare, the value usually increases. Right now colored diamonds are enjoying immense popularity in the global market, so demand is high and not likely to decrease any time soon.
It can be refreshing to have a tangible investment that you can actually see and touch, and that can be passed down to heirs very simply. Most investors just own loose stones, but you can always have the diamonds set into beautiful jewelry. Since you’ve invested your money into these gemstones, you might as well go ahead and enjoy them! This is one investment that will certainly never become boring.
