For many people, diamond jewelry is considered priceless possessions. This is most often the case when a man buys an engagement ring to propose to the one person he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Thereafter, wedding rings are exchanged on the day of their wedding. In many cases, jewelry is passed down from one generation to the next generation. These jewelry are often not considered for their monetary value, but rather for the meaning behind the jewelry.
For other people, jewelry – especially those fitted with a diamond – is seen as an investment. There are also a lot of people that are wondering whether diamond jewelry appreciate in value over time, or rather lose their value as time goes by. These people may be interested in buying some diamond jewelry to store in a safe, which they can then later sell when the diamond jewelry is worth considerably more than before.
The answer to the question whether diamond jewelry appreciate in value or rather declines in value is quite complicated. In many cases, the answer to this particular question will be no, but there are cases where the answer will be yes.
In order to better understand when a piece of diamond jewelry’s value will increase or not increase, the price fluctuations of diamonds, as well as the current supply and demand need to be considered. The higher diamonds are valued at any given period in time, the higher the value your diamond will carry. The more supply that is available,
the less valuable your diamond will be. The more demand there is with a lower supply, the higher value your diamond will have.
When a diamond is rare, however, things change considerably. It is known that the rarer diamond types are considered highly valuable and their value also often tend to increase over time as the demand for them increases, but, at the same time, their availability decreases.
Rare diamonds include those with perfect qualities, including cut quality, color rating and clarity grade. Diamonds that weigh more are also rarer. It should also be noted that fancy colored diamonds are often also much more valuable than colorless choices.
