Fancy Gray Diamonds – the Affordable Alternative for Investors

Gray Diamond Pendant

Gray Diamond Pendant

ONTARIO, CANADA, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fancy Gray diamonds are the affordable stepbrother of Blue Diamonds. Blue and Gray are quite often found together in the same colored diamond because both can possess the rare earth element boron to give them their visual color. Both are semi conductors of electricity, a quality that separates them from virtually every other type of diamond, colored or colorless. Pure gray diamonds have a very obvious gray tone that can range from steel gray to graphite gray, and often have metallic bluish undertones to boot. As previously mentioned, a Gray Diamond’s color can come from a high concentration of boron, or hydrogen, similar to the composition required for nature to make Blue Diamonds.

Gray diamonds are categorized by the GIA into the following ‘official’ shades; Light Gray, Fancy Light Gray, Fancy Gray, Fancy Dark Gray, and Fancy Deep Gray.

The Gray diamond is often found with a modifying color such as pink, yellow, blue, violet or purple. As a Primary hue, a Gray diamond is quite unique and there are many names for the various shades such as Ash Gray, Charcoal Gray, Slate Gray, Metallic Gray, Steel Gray, Silver Gray, Battleship Gray, Cloudy Gray or Cool Gray. When combined with Blue, Violet, Pink or Purple, the resulting diamonds can possess a valuation significantly higher than the price of a pure Gray Diamond.

The Fancy Gray Diamond Market

Pure Gray diamonds are rare in nature but that rarity has not yet transferred into substantially higher prices to the collector and investor. That underachieving scenario may soon change! The industry is waking up to the fact that Gray diamonds are both extremely rare and beautiful. As a sound financial asset, or for use in a high end jewelry piece, Gray diamonds offer buyers a unique and desirable opportunity for future price appreciation!

Fancy Gray diamonds may be an unconventional diamond color, but they hold that pronounced price advantage over mainstream fancy colors! Natural Fancy Gray diamonds consist of a neutral color whose iterations are so diverse that the range of gray hues is indeed sizeable. Other fancy colors can also couple with gray to form either a Gray diamond with overtones, or secondary color modifiers. Blue is usually the most common overtone found in Gray diamonds.

Famous Grey Diamonds

Sultan of Morocco: at 35.27 carats, the Sultan of Morocco is actually a cushion cut Grayish Blue diamond. It is the fourth largest Blue diamond in history and originated from Southern India. The Sultans of Morocco were purportedly one-time owners of the diamond although their ownership has not been proven. A confirmed owner of the Sultan of Morocco diamond was the Yousupov family, a Russian family of noble status. Cartier purchased the diamond from Prince Felix Yousupov II in 1922. The company loaned the diamond to the New York State Museum for the World of Gems Exposition in 1969. Three years later, the Sultan of Morocco diamond was sold to a private collector in the US for $250,000. Today that diamond would command in excess of $1 million per carat were it ever to come to market.

Wittelsbach Diamond: another diamond that was Blue with Gray as a secondary color modifier, the Wittelsbach diamond originally weighed 35.56 carats and was Fancy Deep Grayish Blue VS2. It was a member of the Austrian, as well as the Bavarian, Crown Jewels.

Hope Diamond: the Hope Diamond is arguably the most famous colored diamond in the world. Its Blue-Gray color makes it highly unique and it also has a redish tint due to the amount of boron found inside. It’s measured at 45.52 carats. It’s currently on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institute.

Investing in Gray Diamonds

Gray diamonds too are becoming rare. However, their prices are not as high as other natural colored diamonds, hence an opportunity for certain investors. Like with any investment, it is the responsibility for the investor to seek expert advice or do some due diligence. There are vast resources on gray diamonds available to the public. However, the President of Premier Diamond Group (North America) Ltd, Mr. David Metcalfe is available for consultation. He is a pioneer in the branding of natural colored diamonds as a hedge against excessive market volatility brought about by speculation and government credit excesses.

Blue diamond, the natural Colored Gem for possible Investment

The 20.08-carat blue diamond

The 20.08-carat blue diamond

ONTARIO, CANADA, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In 2014, the Petra Diamonds recovered a 29.6 carat blue diamond at the Cullinan mine. This natural colored diamond was deemed to be an outstanding blue with extraordinary saturation, tone and clarity. In February of the same year, the diamond was sold for US$25.6 million (US$862,80 per carat) to Cora International NY through the South African company Golden Yellow Diamonds. The diamond was later cut, polished and unveiled as the ‘Blue Moon’, a 12 carat cushion-cut diamond of the highest quality, according to Petra Diamonds. In 2015, Blue Moon was sold for $50 million at a Geneva auction.

Another recovery by Petra Diamonds, in the same year, was the exceptional 122.52 carat blue diamond called “The Cullinan Dream”. This stone was sold for US$27.52 million.

In 2019, Petra Diamonds also recovered a 20.8 carat blue gem quality type IIb diamond at its Cullinan mine in South Africa. The mining firm reacted to the recovery by saying “Today’s discovery not only demonstrates the quality of Petra’s asset base, as the Cullinan diamond mine remains a significant source of rare blue diamonds, but it again confirms the prevalence of exceptional stones in the Cullinan orebody as well as the ability of the mine’s plant to recover the full spectrum of diamonds.” When the mining firm was to hold a special tender, for the recovered stone, analysts speculated that the gem will fetch as much as $15 million.

While there are recoveries of blue diamonds, Astteria magazine explains that “Natural Blue Diamonds are among the rarest and most expensive fancy colored diamonds in dwindling supply and increasing demand.” As these diamonds become rare with high demand, the more valuable they become. To this regard, Astteria goes on to explain that “blue diamond prices rise every year in record-breaking increments and in the last decade, in addition to being mysterious and beautiful gems, blue diamonds have become popular among investors and collectors who want to own these natural wonders as well as capitalize on them.”

As these blue gems have become popular, investors consider them as hard assets that are private in nature and can be carried and moved around. The portability of these tangible assets allows investors to take them anywhere in the world and trade in any currency.

The convenience and freedom to buy and sell across geographical boundaries is a plus. However, when tenders are held, they take place in strict confidentiality – not many people have access to information. If they do, most do not get expert advice.

Premier Diamond Group on 5 Carat Pink that Set Records for Investors

Premier Diamond Group

Premier Diamond Group

The 5.03-carat, fancy-pink VS1

The 5.03-carat, fancy-pink VS1

ONTARIO, CANADA, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rare colored Diamonds are setting records across the global market and investors are clamoring to get a piece of the action. Fancy-Pink VS1, a 5.03-carat gem garnered $2.9 million or $583,551 per carat at Bonhams London Fine Jewelry sale. Another record for a fancy-pink diamond was $528,021 per carat for a stone sold at Sotheby’s in 2016.

“Large pink diamonds are continuing to increase in value year on year”, said Emily Barber, director of jewelry at Bonhams UK. “They are highly desirable to discerning collectors given their rarity and limited supply.” The stone’s value lies in its even color saturation, cut and size, Barber added. It is exceptionally rare to see pink diamonds over five carats on the market, she explained.

Other gems also set records beyond expectation. “A Belle Epoque diamond headpiece designed by Spanish royal jeweler Ansorena in the classical Greek meander style achieved GBP 162,500 ($210,650) against a presale estimate of GBP 80,000 to GBP 120,000, while a Hennell Art Deco tiara went for GBP 81,250 ($105,320) beating its valuation of GBP 40,000 to GBP 60,000 ($51,850 to $77,780),” reports Rapaport.

Colored diamonds, continues Rapaport, “especially pink ones, have been lately setting records in auctions. The most expensive diamond ever sold at auction was the ‘Pink Star’, which fetched $71.2 million in April 2017.”

Besides talk of such big stones, the rarity of colored diamonds has continuously driven price increases in the past, even as the value of colorless diamonds fell. Experts report that over the past 17 years, the average price for colored diamonds has risen 12 percent. It’s reasonable to expect that it will continue growing, especially given that the Argyle mine, the world’s largest supplier of natural colored diamonds, closed in 2020.

With that rarity, investors are finding ways to put their money in the colored diamond market, and they are turning to Mr. David Metcalfe, President of Premier Diamond Group (North America) Ltd. Mr. Metcalfe is an expert with access to the global market. He is “a pioneer in the branding of natural colored diamonds as a hedge against excessive market volatility brought about by speculation and government credit excesses.” For more information, go to http://premierdiamondltd.com/portfolio-protection/.

18.96-carat pink diamond known as the ‘Pink Legacy’ diamond

Colored diamonds set records at the Argyle Pink Tender and Geneva Auctions

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Before the closure of the Argyle Diamond Mine in 2020, this Western Australia mine “broke records at its 2018 Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender as a 2.28-carat stone became the most valuable in the event’s 34-year history,” Rio Tinto reported. The same year, “an exceptionally rare 19-carat pink diamond fetched US$50 million at a auction in Geneva on November 13th, Christie’s said. The pink diamond set a new per carat record for a stone of its kind.

The fancy-purplish-red Argyle Muse “was the top seller at the Tender, going to an unnamed buyer for an undisclosed amount.” The Argyle Alpha, “an emerald-cut, 3.14-carat diamond, set a record as the largest and most valuable vivid-pink diamond in the tender’s history, with Singapore-based Glajz THG purchasing it,” according to Rapaport.

Some 63 pink, red and violet stones were on offer, weighing a combined 51.48 carats. Gemcut Geneva successfully bid on several of those, including the round-brilliant, 2.08-carat, fancy-intense-pink Argyle Odyssey, Rio Tinto reported.

At the auction in Geneva held in November 2018, participants saw a new per carat record of its kind when, The Pink Legacy, a rare 19-carat pink diamond fetched US$50; that is US$2.6 million per carat. Christie’s describes the Pink Legacy as incomparable and “the largest and finest Fancy Vivid Pink diamond ever offered at auction by the company.”

Another natural colored gem, the 15-carat Pink Promise was also sold at a a Christie’s auction in Hong Kong for US $32.5 million or US $2.176 million per carat. This diamond previously set the world auction record price per carat for any pink diamond.

Natural colored diamonds like the Pink Promise, the Pink Legacy, The Argyle Alpha all have set records over the years, these treasures and many other will continue to set records as they appreciate in the future. To have access to natural colored diamond markets, you'll need expertise from Premier Diamond Group (North America) Ltd.

Webflow raised $140 million in Series B and is valued at a cool $2 million, further demonstrating the growing demand for the platform and no-code solutions.

“Some might suggest that the rise in no-code solutions marks the end of traditional programming, but I strongly believe that it’s an opportunity to further diversify teams with cross-functional skills to better collaborate.

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 5X Solutions Announces Mortgage Branch Rankings and Scorecards
Telemetry BI™, 5X Solutions’ Mortgage Business Intelligence Platform, Now Includes Scorecards to Evaluate Branch Performance.

5X Solutions, LLC, a mortgage business intelligence and data analytics company, has announced the addition of branch rankings and scorecards to its automated financial reporting and mortgage business intelligence system.

Mortgage lenders can now measure and monitor the performance of their branches daily, enabling them to quickly identify and address issues that impact their revenues and expenses. Branch managers can also view their individual metrics and rankings. By comparing their metrics to their goals, they become more accountable for their performance.

This innovative branch ranking model provides mortgage lenders with the insights to manage their branches. Rankings are based on the number of loans closed, total loan volume, and net income basis points. This allows for branch comparisons that can be stratified by region. Scorecards provide more detail in the form of interactive key performance indicators (KPIs), trending analysis, and financial metrics that can be customized by the user.

Managers can also evaluate whether their branches are achieving their goals both monthly and year-to-date. Scorecards allow them to see where they're underperforming so they can adjust their strategy accordingly.

“Branch rankings and scorecards were inspired by the success we achieved with loan originator scorecards. We believe this tool complements the other performance metrics and KPIs provided by Telemetry BI™, our mortgage business intelligence platform. Combining data from both loan origination systems and accounting systems gives our clients’ a 360-degree view of branch performance. Without measuring revenue and expenses, loan production only provides half of the story.” said Ron de Frates, cofounder of 5X solutions.

Branch rankings will be rolled out to Telemetry BI™ users in the coming weeks.

EMA Releases Position Paper: Carbon Taxes v. Carbon Markets: The Easy or the Right Way?

Environmental Markets Association

Why well-designed carbon markets are a superior environmental and economic policy for reducing carbon emissions

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Environmental Markets Association's (EMA) Market Principles Committee is proud to release its position paper, "Carbon Tax v. Carbon Markets: The Easy or Right Way."

"The EMA Market Principles Committee is pleased to release this article discussing the advantages of carbon markets," said Christian Hofer, Chair of The Market Principles Committee. "Thoughtful market design is a critical aspect of successful market-based solutions. We hope that this article increases awareness and encourages more debate about the types of economic and environmental policies that the world is pursuing to solve the problem of climate change."

As Benjamin Franklin famously wrote, "Nothing is certain except death and taxes in this world." During the Earth's climate crisis and the beginning of what scientists are calling the sixth mass extinction of biodiversity, failure to solve the problem of excess greenhouse gas emissions ("carbon emissions") will certainly lead to more of the former. But does humanity's attempt to reduce carbon emissions need to result in the latter?

Click here to read the full paper "Carbon Taxes v. Carbon Markets: The Easy or the Right Way?"

EMA strongly supports the utilization of markets to achieve environmental policy goals. Well-designed markets yield many benefits, including, but not limited to, transparent price signals determined through competition, risk mitigation opportunities, incentives for technological innovation, efficient allocation of capital and resources, investor certainty, and ratepayer protection. To that end, EMA endorses the following principles for meeting environmental policy goals through market-based programs:

• Tradeable Products
• Market-Based Pricing
• Market Design that Fosters Transparency, Competition, and Liquidity
• Market Oversight
• Market Integrity and Stability
