Everyone likes the look of a high-quality diamond. GIA loose diamonds are worth every penny of the ranking they are given. Of course, the price many of us are forced to pay in order to secure the diamond we would like to have is not exactly easy to cope with. It leaves many of us with extra credit card debt at the least, and a second mortgage in the event of an incredibly unwise decision.
Wholesale diamonds are not exactly your standard consumer option, but if you do enough research, you might be able to find your way into the right jeweler’s store and see what may happen. There are many varieties of stones to choose from, and the quality of your selection will have a heavy bearing on its price, certainly.
Most people are not willing to pay for flawless diamonds, but the ones who do are certainly aware of the caliber of the stone and the long-term investment they are making. Over time, as higher caliber diamonds are pulled from the market, the ones that are available will consistently increase in value. What boggles my mind is the number of diamonds that exist that are not shared on the open market. It has long been a rumor that large diamond manufacturers will conceal the quantity of diamonds they are mining despite regulations that require them to document every stone they pull from the mine. It is rumors like that which give us movies like “Blood Diamond” and change the way people view diamonds worldwide.
