Fully Bonded Diamonds
Advantages of buying diamonds at bonded
Before you start shopping for diamonds, consider dealing with a bonded jeweller.
These bonded jewellers sell bond diamonds, and there are very few bond jewellers in the world. In fact, out of all
of the jewellers in the world, only about 5% of them are bond jewellers.
Buying a bonded diamond will cost you more than buying a non-bond diamond. But
when you look at what you get with the bond option, you will see that it is well worth the extra expense. A fully
bonded diamond comes with certain guarantees.
First, fully bonded diamonds have a buy back policy for
the life of the diamond. No matter how long you have had the diamond, you can take it back to the bond jeweller
and sell it back to him or her, for a 100% refund. If a jeweller does not offer a 100% buy back guarantee, for
the life of the diamond, then you should take a closer look at the diamond to see what is wrong with

advantages, as outlined in this article.
Bond diamonds also have a breakage policy. If the stone breaks or chips, the bond
jeweller will replace it with a new one – one time. No jeweller would ever offer such a policy on any stone that
was not 100% natural, so just the offer of such a policy should give you piece of mind concerning the quality of
the diamond. Bonded diamonds are natural and untreated.
Bond diamonds increase in value, with a fixed appreciation rate that is designed
to keep up with inflation. This means that a diamond that is worth a certain amount of money today will be worth
more in the future, as the price of diamonds continues to rise. This generally does not apply to buy backs,
however. It typically applies to trade-ins.
Alternately, by purchasing a bond diamond, you are protected against the
possibility of a market crash. If a market crash occurs, the value of diamonds will drop. However, the bond
jeweller guarantees to refund you the difference between what the diamond is now worth and what you paid for it
before the market crash.
It may be difficult to find a bond jeweller in your area, but if you can, this is
who you want to deal with, as opposed to dealing with an non-bond jeweller. Specifically tell the jeweller that you
are only interested in bond diamonds. You can find a bond jeweller in your area by using various online resources,
or by calling the local jewellery stores.
