One main factor pink diamonds are a good investment is their rarity. Pink diamonds from the Argyle mine account for less than 0.004% of all global diamond mining between 2005 and its closure in 2020.
The limited availability of these pink diamonds contributes to their elevated value and potential for appreciation. With the increasing demand for pink diamonds, it is anticipated that their prices will correspondingly increase. Pink diamonds are a good investment for multiple reasons. These rare and highly coveted diamonds have consistently demonstrated a notable increase in value over time, rendering them an appealing choice for investors seeking to diversify their portfolios.
DO PINK DIAMONDS INCREASE IN VALUE?
Pink diamonds do increase in value, demonstrating a strong track record of price appreciation over the past few decades. According to the Fancy Colour Research Foundation, between 2005 and 2023, the price of pink diamonds increased by an average of 398%. This remarkable expansion highlights the fact that pink diamonds will increase in value and have the potential for significant investment returns.
ARE PINK DIAMONDS RARE?
Pink diamonds are rare and a highly desirable asset within the realm of investment. Due to their limited availability and distinctive aesthetics. The Argyle mine, located in Western Australia, was responsible for the production of more than 90% of the global supply of pink diamonds. Unfortunately, the mine ceased operations in 2020, resulting in a heightened level of scarcity and increase in costs.
WHY ARE PINK DIAMONDS SO EXPENSIVE?
The reason why pink diamonds are so expensive can be attributed to their exceptional rarity, captivating pink hue, and limited availability due to the closure of the Argyle mine. The prestigious reputation associated with the Argyle brand also contributes to their desirability and position as a symbol of luxury and wealth.
HOW CAN I TELL IF A PINK DIAMOND IS REAL?
To tell if a pink diamond is real can be a complex process that requires careful examination and analysis. Pink diamonds are among the rarest and most valuable diamonds in the world, making it crucial to ensure their authenticity before making any significant investments or purchases. There are two main key factors to consider when evaluating the legitimacy of a pink diamond, its origin and certification.
One of the first steps in determining the authenticity of a pink diamond is to establish its origin. Pink diamonds are mined in several locations worldwide, this includes Australia, Africa, India, Russia, Canada, and Brazil. The origin and certification of a pink diamond will significantly impact its value and rarity.
When determining the authenticity of a natural pink diamond, obtaining an official diamond certification is essential. The Argyle diamond mine is widely recognised as the most reliable and respected source for pink diamonds. An official Argyle certified will include information about the diamond’s origin, colour, clarity, carat weight, as well as guaranteeing the diamond has not undergone any form of treatments. For unbranded Argyle origin and pink diamonds from other locations, a GIA or IGI certificate is required; the GIA and IGI are widely regarded as some of the most esteemed Gemological laboratories in the world. They provide comprehensive reports that contain all the relevant details about the diamond.
In addition to these factors, it is essential to be cautious when purchasing pink diamonds and only buy from reputable sources such as The Australian Pink Diamond Trade Centre.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE PRICE OF A PINK DIAMOND?
The average price of a pink diamond can vary considerably based on several factors, such as the diamond’s size, colour intensity, clarity, and overall quality. The origin and type of certification will also significantly impact its price. For example, an Argyle-origin pink diamond is typically appraised at fifty percent less than an Argyle-certified pink diamond of comparable quality.
According to the National Jewellery Values Association, the average price of a 0.20ct Argyle certified pink diamond can range from $50,000 per carat to over one million AUD per carat. However, it is important to note that exceptional large sized pink diamonds with unique characteristics will command prices well above this range.
Additionally, there is a significantly higher market demand for pink diamonds with official Argyle certification than for those with third party Argyle origin certification, this factor also contributes to the overall average price of pink diamonds.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY PINK DIAMOND?
Taking care of a pink diamond involves a few important steps to ensure its longevity and brilliance. By following these guidelines, you can maintain the beauty and value of your diamond for years to come.
1. Keeping your pink diamond looking its best requires regular cleaning.
2. To avoid scratches or other damage to your pink diamond, a safe storage case is essential.
3. Although diamonds are quite durable, they may still chip or break if they are hit forcefully. In addition, pink diamonds may be harmed by fire or extreme temperatures.
