Investing in Canary Yellow Diamonds

Not only among the most abundant colour of Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds as found in nature but also the most popular colour amongst buyers, Natural Yellow Diamonds or when referred to by their more popular name: Canary Yellow Diamonds are deemed by all and sundry to bet the iconic coloured diamond.

The Ellendale Diamond Mine in Western Australia, which has a remaining mine life of only 18 months, has been said to account for approximately 50% of the world supply of fancy yellow diamonds.

With greater consumer education and the huge growth in popularity of Natural Fancy Coloured Diamonds in general (yellow diamonds in particular) the difference between an inferior colourless diamond and a sparkling fancy Vivid diamond is something that even a novice can appreciate.

This growth in acceptance, appreciation, knowledge and demand for Natural Fancy Yellow Diamonds coupled with their drastically declining supply makes the characteristics of this investment extremely compelling.

Yellow Diamonds at Auction

There is a huge demand for Fancy Yellow Diamonds at auction and this is especially reflected by the high prices being paid for Fancy Yellows over the past 15 years. In fact, in December 2011, a record was set for a yellow diamond when the Sun Drop diamond was sold at Sotheby's for USD12.36 million.

Market Value

Between the years 2002-2012, the price of a 1.00 carat Fancy Yellow Diamond appreciated 193% over a 5 year period and 322% over a 10 year period! This is an annualized return of 38.6% and 32.2% respectively. When you consider that this data includes the Sub Prime Mortgage Crisis of 2007/08 (when the price of yellow diamonds barely declined) this outperformance is even

Tiffany & Co. financial reports showed that since Q1 of 2010, the price per carat paid by Tiffany & Co. to Kimberly Diamonds (the operator of the Ellendale mine) for its Natural Yellow Diamonds has almost doubled to over $5,000/carat.

For several months I had considered investing in Fancy Colored Diamonds. I heard all the negative jargon about unscrupulous people in the diamond business and how you could be taken to the cleaners, sort of speak.  However, I called Northern Cross Diamonds and spoke to Stephen who is the owner. My experience with him from the early process to the actual purchase of a Fancy Colored Diamond from him was quite a journey.  He urged me before buying the diamond to do my own due diligence by comparing the price and quality. Needless to say I did not find one of like shape, color, clarity or price that would have changed my decision. If you would like to speak to me directly for more information you can get my telephone number from Northern Cross.

I have bought several coloured diamonds from Northern Cross Diamonds.  I have found that Northern Cross gets me the best prices -- even when the diamonds come from another vendor and are listed with the other vendors at a higher price.  Stephen Mitanidis has spent hours of his time educating me on coloured diamonds and helping me to choose diamonds that have the best investment potential.  He has also allowed me to trade coloured diamonds that I own for coloured diamonds that I want and has assured me that Northern Cross will help me to sell my coloured diamonds if I choose to do so. If you buy a coloured diamond, I recommend that you consider showing it to your family members and friends. Most of them will be impressed with how it looks and might want to seize the opportunity to buy one or more before the value of coloured diamonds appreciates further.
