How does the price of diamond jewellery evolve?
Diamond prices are stable over long periods of time. For instance, if you look at the price over 100 years, you’ll notice it increases by the index value. This means that, on average, diamonds are a very stable investment. We say ‘on average’ because there are exceptions for certain categories and certain periods.
Recent indicators and studies project an increase of the diamond prices for the coming decades. This anticipated price increase is mainly triggered by the combined effect of increasing demand and decreasing supply.
This increase in price of course depends on the specific diamond and its quality.
The value of diamond jewellery is something else. Seeing as various additional factors come into the equation, such as currency exchange rates, labour, gold and design, the value is harder to calculate yet more stable because of the importance of labour and design. Diamond jewellery of a certain brand quality are even more special cases because the brand’s quality guarantee also plays a role… Brands offer a guarantee for a certain quality, which is found in the quality of the materials (diamond, gold, platinum), the research for durability of the design and general aesthetics and the exclusivity (limited editions).
