STEP 1

STEP 3

We suggest to our clients the peace of mind that comes with the physical ownership of their diamonds. We provide this along with delivery and advice on the eventual sale of the diamonds.

STEP 4

Exit strategy

At the correct time, we then assess a number of options to obtain the best return for you on the sale of your diamond.

Wholesale

We sell back to the wholesale market and investors benefit from the capital growth over the investment term. We have gone back to 2003 looking at the increase in wholesale prices over the years in the types of diamonds we are acquiring. The smallest appreciation per annum has been 15% and the largest 233% (source: PDH wholesale suppliers-2003 to 2012 from a sample of 72 diamonds).

Retail

Once out of the ground, the rough stones moved through the so-called diamond pipeline—a value chain that runs from dealers to diamond cutters and polishers to jewellery manufacturers to retail stores and finally to consumers. The value-added along the way is impressive, as $15 billion in rough diamonds becomes $24 billion in polished diamonds, which in turn goes into diamond jewellery with a resulting retail value of $71 billion (source: Bain and Company Report: The Global Diamond Industry). This makes the average high street mark up from polished diamond (wholesale) to over 195%. This is an average; a top High Street jeweller will have a mark up of around 280%.
