Mercantile Diamond Group - Diamonds As Investment
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 19, 2013 ) Ontario, Canada -- In an age where economy and inflation are almost synonymous to each other, Investment decisions have become more complex and less secured. Any investment avenue ideally should return more than the rate of inflation in a years time or else the investment will eventually end-up depreciating the overall investment Portfolio. Spreading of risks needs to be considered and hence the modern-day economy demands hunting new avenues for investment in addition to traditional sources.
Diamonds are rapidly emerging as one of the preferred new-age avenues for investments. Most luxury items have an expiration date but Jewelry, and especially diamonds, can last forever and have more intrinsic value than cars and houses. For Estate Planning purposes they are usually an important part of an inheritance. Thus Diamonds make a favorable investment for those looking at widening their risk portfolio.
Market trends also indicate that this is a period favorable for investing in diamonds. Demand will outstrip supply for the next decade as emerging economies in China and India are going through a transition phase to serve consumer-buying interests. As per the current industry outlook, the diamond industry sees a steady growth and prospective investors can expect good returns on their investments. Based on the quality of the investment made five years back, the investor today would have an appreciation of around 45 50% on their investment.
