Mozes Victor Konig on Diamonds as Investments

September 28, 2021 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

Diamonds have long been a sound investment.  Historically they have been a preferred investment form for many reasons.  Diamond expert Mozes Victor Konig has seen – especially in the last three or four decades – an escalation in the popularity of this type of investment.

“There was a study conducted by Tilburg University and HEC Paris finance professors Luc Renneboog and Christophe Spaenjers,” Konig explains.  “They found that between 1999 and 2010 the return of global stocks was an annualized minus-0.1% and global bonds stood at 3.3%.  If you compare that to the same period for diamonds you have white diamonds at 6.4% and colored diamonds at 2.9%.  Those  numbers speak for themselves,” Mozes Victor Konig added.

There are other advantages to investing in diamonds.  These include:

  1. Portability (so small that they are easy to move around and hide if necessary)
  2. Value increase (over time the value really does increase in most cases)
  3. Endurance (being one of the hardest elements they can withstand pretty much any situation)
  4. No credit risks (inflation and currency fluctuation do not impact the precious gemstone)
  5. Supply versus demand (supply is dropping and demand increasing)
  6. Sentimental value (passed down throughout generations, people are reluctant to part with their spouse’s great grandmother’s rings).

In a nutshell, diamonds really do make a great investment choice.
