Investors Turn To Trusted Jewelers For Capital Preservation

NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In the rarified air of Natural Colored Diamond connoisseurship most important transactions have traditionally taken place in the hushed private rooms of the world's leading auction houses and cutting houses. But the market is changing. An innovative new program at seven of the country's most exclusive jewelry salons will offer rare, investment-quality Fancy Color Diamond jewels to collectors and investors "where they live."

Known as The One and Only One Collection, the one-of-a-kind Fancy Color Diamond statement pieces are valued between $2 million and $10 million. They include a rare 2.97-carat Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond Ring, a superbly matched pair of Fancy Intense Green Diamond Earrings (2.23 and 2.35 carats), a 10.02-carat Fancy Vivid "Canary" Yellow Marquise Diamond Ring, and The Majestic Pink Diamond Bracelet (43.34 carats), which features 204 Fancy Vivid and Intense Argyle Pink and Red Diamonds.

The jewels of The One and Only One Collection are available by appointment only, individual prices upon request.

"We're experiencing unprecedented worldwide demand for important Fancy Color Diamonds as investors look to diversify portfolios and preserve capital," said Joe Padulo, CEO of Padulo Prive, who advises high-end jewelers and luxury brands. "These venerable U.S. salons -- the most respected and established in their regions – have been selected to represent this magnificent collection...one-of-a-kind Natural Colored Diamonds of the quality once only available to oligarchs and royalty," he continued.

During the volatile economic cycle of the past ten years, and even since the banking crisis of 2008, prices of Fancy Color Diamonds have soared and auction records have been broken as Ultra High Net Worth Individuals recognize that these precious hard assets have out-performed most financial instruments.

  • In 2009, a 2.52-carat Fancy Vivid Green Diamond sold at auction for $3.08 million, a world-record $1.2 million per carat.
  • In 2011, in Hong Kong, a 6.01-carat Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond sold for $10.1 million, or $1.6 million per carat, also a world record.

"Over the past ten years, Fancy Color Diamonds have jumped ten-fold," said Rahul Kadakia, Head of Jewelry for Christie's Americas and Switzerland. "What was then $100,000 or $200,000 per carat can now easily be worth $1.7 to $1.8 to $2 million per carat," he predicts.

The diamonds of The One and Only One Collection are available by appointment, exclusively at these fine jewelry salons:

Black, Starr & Frost, New York, NY and Newport Beach, CA; Dorfman Jewelers, Boston, MA; Eiseman Jewels, Dallas, TX; George Walton's Gold & Diamond Company, Anchorage, AK; Hamilton Jewelers, Palm Beach, FL and Princeton, NJ; M.J. Miller & Co., Barrington, IL; and Molina Fine Jewels, Phoenix, AZ.
