The challenges of diamond investment can be solved with Icecap: a trading platform specifically designed for diamond investors
While the advantages of diamonds as part of a hard asset portfolio are considerable, so are the obstacles. An investor can mitigate the obstacles, and achieve the advantages, if they buy/sell diamonds in an environment with these characteristics:
- The diamond’s quality control (grading) is absolute and guaranteed.
- The factors that hurt a diamond’s quality, beyond the Four C’s, are screened out. In other words, a diamond with such negative characeristics is not allowed in the trading environment.
- Purchases can be made at much lower markups (closer to wholesale) than are generally available from existing retail and etail channels.
- Most Important: A mechanism exists to help with liquidity, so the seller is trading at approximately the same market price level as the buyer (absent trading fees.)
