Diamonds news and trends

  • Millenials ( under 35's ) have been purchasing diamonds again!

    First of all I'd like to take this opportunity to wish ALL of you a Brilliant 2017 !

     

    Also, I'd like to thank the hundred's of you who have contacted us the last 3 months concerning your eventual loose diamond purchase.

    We hope that all of you, yes, even those who chose not to purchase a loose diamond at Antwerpdiamonds.direct, were satisfied with our assistance.

    As for those of you who became our 'first' time clients, we at Antwerpdiamonds.direct are honored to have been your diamond supplier of choice. We thank you for your trust in us, and for your wonderful feedback. We anxiously await your next order !

     

     

    I recently just read an article where Mr Bruce Cleaver ( DeBeers Group CEO ) is quoted as saying that Millenials ( under 35's )  have been purchasing diamonds again!  ( http://www.forbes.com/sites/rachellebergstein/2016/09/20/millennials-buy-diamonds-so-why-does-everyone-think-that-they-dont/#7c05788015df)

     

    What's very interesting to note here, is that the decisions to pick a  loose diamond are more and more made 'jointly', which if you read between the lines, might signify that the modern woman wants to know more about her diamond. Never has it been so important to be so transparent when giving information as to the diamond's criteria as today. And most likely, this aspect of the diamond selection, will become more and more detrimental for the consumer.

    Why am  I saying this ? Simply because we at Antwerpdiamonds.direct began our 'mission' to not only emphasize the importance of certification and laser inscriptions, but also to educate those of you who are interested and passionate about the most valuable piece of your jewellery: the loose Diamond.

     

     

    Come visit us at Antwerpdiamonds.direct where you can find our pre-selected premium quality diamonds. Which obviously will be delivered with their corresponding Laboratory Report ( HRD, GIA or IGI), and will have their Laboratory and Certificate number laser engraved on their girdle.

    If you are looking for a specific diamond which you cannot find on our pre-selection, don't hesitate to contact us by telephone or email or complete our special form and we will give you our best quote within 24 hours.

  • How to buy a loose diamond online | Antwerpdiamonds.direct

    How to buy diamond online | Antwerpdiamonds.direct

    The Correct Approach to Buying Diamonds Online

    Unlike conventional products, diamonds hold a much a higher financial and intangible value. When shopping online, to ensure that you are buying the right diamond, there is a certain approach that you need to follow. We are going to go through the steps that constitute this approach.

    Determine the Shape

    The first step to buying a diamond online is to determine the shape that you like. There are several forms available whether in regular or virtual stores. The most common ones are round, oval, radiant, emerald, heart, cushion, and marquise.

    When picking the shape of the diamond you plan on buying, keep in mind the way you are going to use and what exactly do you plan to wear it with. Each shape is designed for a different use. Diamonds that you are going to use for decoration aren’t necessarily the same diamonds you are going to use when you customizing ornament. Before picking the shape of the diamond, write a list of criteria and check them one by one.

    Determine the Budget

    After picking the shape of the diamond, determining your budget should be the next step. Determining the amount you are willing to afford to get the stone that you like will help you identifying the exact size that you can have. Colors and sizes are often prominent factors in deciding the value of a diamond but rest assured that when you browse the available stones in our store, you will find a diamond that fits every budget, whether in color or size.

    Choose a Size

    After determining your budget, choosing a size shouldn’t be too hard to do. If you find that a 1-carat stone doesn’t fit your budget, you can always pick a 0.85 or 0.99 one instead. While the difference in size could be clear to experts, most people will see diamonds the same size.

    Size is always the determining factor when it comes to price, but it is also something that you replace. If your budget doesn’t fit the size you would like to buy; you can always find a decent alternative if you looked at the right place.

    Picking the Color

    The whiter the diamond is, the more expensive it will be. What you will find at Antwerpdiamonds.direct is diamonds marked from D to I. D marks the whitest stone available while I reside at the other end of the spectrum. When choosing the color, you should also keep in the mind how finely cut the diamond is because a badly-cut D stone may not look as shiny and beautiful as a finely-cut I diamond.

    Once you have settled on a diamond to buy, make sure that you are buying it for the right price. Through our website, Antwerpdiamonds.Direct, we sell preselected premium diamonds at an affordable wholesale price. We also offer certificates, shipping, and insurance with every sale. We also have a dedicated team available 24/7 to advise you on every step of the buying process.

  • How to Invest in diamonds

    Are you new to investing in diamonds?

    Don't worry - we are here to help.

    Diamonds have historically always been a wise investment choice. While there is always a small element of risk with any investment, diamonds have consistently increased in value by 3-5% per year over the last decade, irrespective of the world’s economy. It is this lack of volatility that makes diamonds such an attractive financial proposition many. Still, we do not advise on investing in diamonds for a quick return on your outlay. You need to allow time for your investment to mature over a number of years if you are to take full advantage of its earning potential.

    Learn more about our diamond investment philosophy in our youtube video

    Diamonds as an investment is always a very delicate issue. The problem with investing in diamonds when you buy retail is that you’re actually usually buying a jewel. When you’re buying a jewel, you’re buying a totally different product. By buying a loose diamond alone, you’re actually investing on the part of the jewel that is the most expensive - that carries the most value. So keeping some of your assets in diamonds is not necessarily a bad idea. Also, they’re easy to transport, easy to give as a gift to anybody - any of your loved ones.

  • How to buy an ethical loose diamond ?

    What are ethical diamonds?

     

    Ethical diamonds are diamonds for which we know the whole supply chain, from the origin towards the finished loose diamond. It is crucial to build trust that people can find out that the diamond they're purchasing is from a lasting source, produced by the top craftsmen and the diamonds are fully traceable.

    The confidence of buyers is why  today’s diamond market is successful. The customer is looking at purchasing a quality value item with a powerful emotional appeal and so a controlled supply chain is a must in building and maintaining this trust.

    Purchasing diamonds that are considered ethical

    Buying diamonds isn't a simple process, but when trust exists, then your first step is already completed.

    Knowledge if  diamonds are trustworthy can be achieved by looking at the diamond details companies are providing on their website:

    To start with the information regarding the quality of the diamonds and for example if there is certification by a recognised laboratory like IGI, HRD, GIA.

    Quality companies like Antwerpdiamonds.direct will guarantee that the diamonds sold are conflict free.

    These factors are all significant when looking at buying diamonds online, whether for investment purposes or not.

    By buying diamonds directly at the origin and giving recognisable laboratory reports for your diamonds which can be certified.
