Diamonds Or Bricks & Mortar?

Recommended Posts

As global uncertainty that spread in post crunch-recession continues to cast a pall over many equity, bond, cash and property investments, diamonds are instead dazzling investors.

The prices of high-carat diamonds and coloured jewels have rocketed by more than 20 per cent over the past year, according to the auction house Christie's while research by international diamond vendor Ajediam suggests prices for diamonds have risen by as much as 15 per cent on average every year during the second half of the 20th Century.

And last year’s out-performance may not be an unexpected fillip. Many City analysts believe that prices could jump by as much again in 2011, as diamond supply and production is curbed in the face of soaring demand from American and Asian markets gearing up for an economic recovery.
