Gems have a soul and a value
Even though I like to attribute a lot of meaning and feeling to gems, as an entrepreneur and businesswoman, I also consciously choose which gems to invest in, being of the opinion that their value will rise.
The Diamond market is going through big changes and I see it weakening in value, except for rare Diamonds comprising of big Diamonds, fancy colored Diamonds and Diamonds with a provenance.
Rarity is key!
Colored gemstones are rare.
Add big ‘country of origin’ names, then they are even more sought-after:
– Burmese Rubies
– Kashmir Sapphires
– Colombian Emeralds
– Brazilian Paraiba Tourmalines
In auction houses, important Gem Treasures have a proven track record of being the successful ‘big ticket’ selling items. The market has seen prices rise continuously.
I choose to focus on the more recently discovered gems such as Paraiba Tourmalines, discovered in 1989 in Brazil. Since their discovery prices have multiplied enormously.
The mines are practically depleted. If anything is still found, it is melee material – small stones of less than half a carat. Meanwhile, awareness and demand for these highly desirable Paraiba Tourmalines is continuously rising, as are the prices reached.
I have a wonderful stock of Paraiba Tourmalines, Red Spinels, Tsavorite Garnets and many other gems. In addition to sourcing these, I am also able to supply the ‘big four’ – Diamonds, Emeralds, Sapphires and Rubies.
For select clients I create personalized Gem Portfolios, which is a collection of gems owned by the clients. Gem Treasures bought as tangible assets with a focus on portfolio diversification and wealth preservation.
On behalf of Gem Portfolio clients, I search and find gems to match their profiles, desires and needs. When I discover good investment opportunities I advise and suggest accordingly. Clients benefit from attractive prices. There is no annual evaluation.
Normally, clients collect the gems and keep them in their custody. However, as a service, I am able to safe-keep gems on their behalf.
If you are interested in building your Gem Portfolio, strategically with a long-term approach, then I would love to help you!
