Investing in diamonds

Since the beginning of time people with means of investment have been considering how to diversify wealth most optimally to achieve maximum yield and minimum effort. At the same time they were troubled how to secure such means to guard against all political, economic and natural influences. The economic science of today clearly defines the concepts of yield, risk and liquidity, which characterizes each investment.


Unfortunately, no individual investment vehicle can cover these three criteria optimally. Therefore an investment portfolio came into existence- asset allocation and investment. An old proverb says: divide the property in three parts. Let one third be active – for example one´s own business activities. One third produce fixed income - for example, real estate, paper assets. However, keep one-third save as "reserves for the bad times“ which should ideally be passed on to the next generation. From time immemorial this is where gold, precious stones and diamonds in particular hold a strong position.
