There are certain characteristics that are more highly sought after, and can make a particular purchase a stronger investment.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2015
According to an article published November 23rd by Think Advisor, fine jewelry not only serves as a wonderful way to display beauty and style, it is also one of the best investments a person can make. The article also explains that, because stones and well-maintained jewelry rarely depreciate like other goods, and are a relatively low maintenance way to hold onto wealth, jewelry is also a fantastic way for parents to pass down their wealth onto children. According to Los Angeles diamond jewelry retailer Louis Saint Dupont, while they consider all of the diamond jewelry that they sell to be beautiful, there are certain characteristics that are more highly sought after, and can make a particular purchase a stronger investment. Some of these characteristics include:
- Color – Louis Saint Dupont explains that, while white/clear diamonds are by far the most traditional and most popular choice, some of the highest value pieces are those that use other diamond colors. While it is by no means a given that colored diamonds are worth more, they explain that certain colors, such as red, pink, and violet, tend to cost more. Louis Saint Dupont notes that this is influenced by both demand and supply, which can vary greatly based on which type of diamonds were processed in the highest quantities that year.
- Cut – Louis Saint Dupont explains that, while the number of carats is often the most discussed differentiator of diamonds, the cut of the diamond may create the biggest difference in terms of look. While the majority of rings owned and sold today use a traditional, round-cut diamond, fancy cuts such as the princess cut, the Asscher cut, or the very popular oval cut are also quite popular. Louis Saint Dupont explains that, as tools and techniques have gotten more advanced, diamond cutters are able to create more innovative and intricate designs. They also note that, while cutting a raw diamond may reduce the value simply because it, by necessity, decreases the weight of the stone, this can be minimized by limiting flaws in the cuts. The article explains that virtually all of the most expensive diamond jewelry pieces in the world are flawless cuts. Even if a flaw in the diamond is indistinguishable to the human eye, it can have a big impact on its value.
Whether customers are looking for a piece of diamond jewelry that will serve as a family heirloom, or they simply want something that will look fabulous for a night out on the town, Louis Saint Dupont explains that they have something for everyone.
