An internally flawless diamond with 0.30 carats can be the first step in protecting your assets through investment diamonds. As the smallest carat size of DIAMONDAS investment diamonds, third-carat diamonds (also known as "one-thirds") are often the starting point for a broad diamond portfolio. An internally flawless ⅓-carat diamond is worth approximately an ounce of gold coins.

It is also popular as a high-value gift for a variety of occasions.

The 0.30-carat diamond as an investment diamond

A third-carat diamond suitable as an investment diamond should exhibit a perfect brilliant cut.

As with all DIAMONDAS investment diamonds for asset protection, all of the technical and qualitative characteristics of our third-carat diamonds are documented in the world's most prestigious certificate from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as well. In addition to the other characteristics determining the value of diamonds (clarity, colour, cut quality and weight), this certificate is a factor determining the price of diamonds worldwide and is thereby of great importance.

Investment diamonds and the US dollar

Similarly to gold and other commodities, investment diamonds are likewise traded on international markets in US dollars (USD). With such worldwide trade the parity of the currencies EUR/USD is therefore to be taken into account from a European perspective. For this reason both currencies are available for selection in our index DIAMOND-IX.The USD exchange rate at the time of the order is decisive for the invoice created in EUR.

You should know: Diamonds require experience and expertise

Even the smallest details that can barely be seen with the naked eye can have a significant influence on the price of a diamond, so a great amount of expertise and many years of experience in the world of diamonds are necessary for the purchase of diamonds, particularly as an investment.

As with all tangible assets, it is advisable to only rely on the best possible quality when it comes to investment diamonds. DIAMONDAS offers you exclusively internally flawless diamonds in the brightest colours with an excellent cut and the best GIA certificate. Our specialists with many years of experience only buy these gemstones on the market in the requested carat sizes in order to achieve an optimal intrinsic value and resale potential.

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and independent institute, engraves the respective certificate number directly on the diamond or brilliant-cut diamond. This makes your diamond unique and connects the gemstone to its individual certificate. Professionals in the diamond industry rely on the GIA certificate – no other certificate is as important in the world of diamonds. The certificate also has a great influence on the resale potential of a diamond. Due to the high standing of the institute worldwide, the best possible prices can be achieved on the international diamond markets.

We have even made it a directive for ourselves at DIAMONDAS that each and every stone that is delivered to you complies with the directives of the European Community and regulations of the United Nations. You will receive a confirmation with a handwritten signature from us stating that your investment diamond comes from ethical sources.

Diamonds as an investment

When you buy a diamond for asset protection you acquire it physically. The diamond can thereby be viewed as the most movable property that combines a high value with the smallest dimensions. A 5-carat (internally flawless) diamond, for example, is worth the same as approximately 10 kg of gold. Our customers tell us that they protect approximately 5% of their total assets through the purchase of diamonds. This investment is often intended to serve as long-term asset protection for future generations.

Diamond prices have shown growth over the last quarter of a century. The rising demand among prospective buyers from Asia and the stagnating output from the mines lead the the conclusion that diamond prices will be rising in the future.

When protecting your assets through diamonds you should not ignore the question of how you can sell diamonds again in the event that you decide to.

We believe that in the future there will be various online trading platforms connecting prospective buyers and private sellers of investment diamonds internationally, similarly to the market for automobiles, antiques and clocks.

But even today unmounted diamonds can be sold at renowned traditional auction houses.The world's most prestigious certificate from the GIA is of great benefit in both of these cases as well.

But DIAMONDAS also takes on the responsibility of providing you optimal support in the resale of your investment diamonds so that you can achieve the best possible price if the desired sale is made.

Can jewellery be created out of third-carat investment diamonds?

Naturally third-carat diamonds can also be fashioned into pieces of jewellery, just as with all other DIAMONDAS investment diamonds. Diamonds fashioned into rings, for example, will retain their value provided that they are professionally mounted by an expert. We therefore advise you to only allow trustworthy and experienced jewellers to create such pieces of jewellery.
