Precious stones have been the object of desire of most people for thousands of years. Their value is mainly due to rarity, but aesthetics is also important. They are mainly used in goldsmithing to create top-class jewelry. The most valuable gemstones cost millions of dollars, and investing in them is one way of securing your capital - even in times of crisis.
Precious stones are minerals that have been formed in the natural environment without human intervention. In addition, they are also characterized by rarity, high transparency, high refractive index, clear gloss, aesthetic values and quite high hardness - from 6.5 points and up in the Mohs sack. The most popular and valuable mineral considered a gemstone is, of course, the immortal diamond. However, when deciding on this type of investment, we have a much wider choice, because gemstones also include: ruby, sapphire, spinel, emerald, aquamarine, morganite, tourmaline, chrysoberyl, garnet, zircon and olivine.
What influences the value of a given stone? There are several factors, of course, apart from the mineral itself, these are: weight (carat), purity (no inclusions), type and quality of the cut, proportions, color, gloss and refraction, as well as historical value. Of course, depending on the type of mineral, these features may differ slightly, but they will be common to most of them. Although carats are the most significant for the value, experts take all aspects into account when valuing a given item.
The Department of Gemstones was established to organize unique auctions where you can purchase the highest quality gemstones. So far, our offer includes such minerals as: diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires and opals. We are particularly interested in precious stones with an interesting history, which often has a positive effect on their value. We are also constantly expanding our offer, so you can expect even more interesting investment opportunities in the future.
Is it worth investing in precious stones? Yes, but there are several important aspects to it. Firstly, it is a high entry barrier - investment in precious stones requires a lot of capital to start. What's more, before selling, each item requires an individual price - and finding a buyer is also not easy. An argument in favor of this investment is the growing demand for jewelry, which determines the increase in the value of precious stones. They are also increasingly used in the high-tech industry. This segment requires caution, but investors are eager to diversify their portfolios with the use of gemstones.
