Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Bella Ideale Diamonds, a company that provides consulting services for implementing diamond investments, recently published a new guide entitled "How Much Should You Invest in Investment Grade Diamonds?" that provides information on the pros and cons of diamond investment and introduces a protocol for implementing investments.
Wealthy international investors are investing in larger, high grade diamonds as alternative investments, because diamond prices have appreciated and the price movements are not correlated to the securities markets. Additionally, investors want hard assets, like diamonds and gold, as hedges against future inflation of global currencies caused by excessive government spending.
"Most of the serious investing is occurring in China and India, where the cultures have a history of embracing hard assets as investment vehicles," said Paul Buchanan, President of Bella Ideale Diamonds Consulting Services. "Wealthy Europeans and more Americans are starting to recognize the potential of diamond investments and activity is increasing," said Buchanan.
According to the Rapaport Diamond Report, an internationally acclaimed publication that monitors diamond prices, larger, higher grade diamonds appreciated approximately 19% in 2011. "This rate of appreciation is higher than the historical average of 10% for larger, white polished diamonds, and clearly indicates an increased level of demand," said Buchanan.
