Diamonds From Brazil
Dr Woody Stanley,
Buying Diamonds for Investment
Having been in the gemstone business for forty years, living in
Brazil, owning my own emerald mines and working with every type of coloured stone since 1964, I can tell you that
NO gemstone investment in the world has been a better investment than investing in diamonds. There is the
occasional exception to the rule, but that is rare! Diamonds are best gemstone investment.
The main reason diamonds are the best investment is that the diamond
industry is a monopoly that has controlled the price for the past seventy years. Emeralds used to be
controlled to some extent from Columbia but that ended in 1998. In Brazil, you have small, coloured stone mines
that will sell their merchandise for the best price they can get if and when they need the money. I’ve seen some
coloured stone prices drop by 50% in the past five years. Diamonds, however, are
controlled, with the price of “rough uncut diamonds” going up at least 20% per year to site holders. There are
fewer than 100 site holders in the world who are allowed to buy diamond rough only 10 times per year. They, in
turn, manufacture the rough into cut and polished diamonds that are then sold in your local jewellery
Buying diamonds for an investment
is best done directly from a wholesale
Diamonds Investment Value
Diamonds, or any other gemstones, are normally not considered an
immediate, short-term investment if you buy them from a retail jewellery store. They are only a good, solid
investment if you can buy them directly from the rock-bottom, wholesale source. If you’re looking for an investment
in diamonds, this means you will have to deal with a wholesaler who can buy directly from the Diamond Trading
Company (DTC). Then you have a controlled investment that will be scheduled to increase on the wholesale level at
20% per year.
The company we introduce you to is in New York City and provides a
diamonds investment program for serious clients that want to have their assets more liquid and make a 20% profit on
their money. The investment is offered as a five-year plan, during which you will hope to double your money at 20%
per year. But you can, of course, sell the diamonds at any time if the necessity arrives.
You can choose or help pick out the type, size and shape of the
diamonds if you wish (and are qualified!). If you let the corporation select the diamonds, they will choose the
most marketable stones in the 1 to 5 carat range. These are white, slightly imperfect to the naked eye. These are
the most desirable stones to sell to the jewellery store industry when the time comes to dispose of your
merchandise. This grade of stones will sell quickly, which is what you want when you're buying diamonds as
Note: The corporation we use is one of a
select few brokers that can buy cut and polished diamonds direct from the DTC. With over 70 years’ experience in
the business, they are worth contacting if you have any wish to profit from
buying diamonds for investment.
Diamonds are Best Gemstone
No coloured stone dealers or brokers can offer this type of
investment. Being a coloured gemstone broker for many years, I can tell you diamonds are the best investment in the
long term. A friend of mine recently acquired 396 carats of nice-coloured emeralds that range from 0.25 to 5 carats
each. A G.I.A. gem appraiser has valued these at US$90,000, but because of the flux in the coloured stone market,
my friend will almost certainly sell the whole lot for just $30,000.
In 1988, when I left the USA to live in Brazil, I wanted to be more
liquid because of a difference of opinion with the IRS! I traded a farm that appraised then for $170,000 for a
$140,000 lot of diamonds. Today the farm is worth in the region of $300,000 at the most. I recently traded the
diamonds for a 56-unit hotel valued at over $2 million. A big difference!
After fighting the taxman many years ago, I can tell you, the more
liquid you are in some parts of your portfolio, the better. Being 100% liquid, it was easy for me to leave the USA
and migrate to Brazil back in 1988. I’ve lived a stress-free life here ever since! With carnivals, beaches, lovely
ladies, football, 75-degree weather all year round (average), favourable exchange rates, ocean-front properties
that can also make 20% per year tax-free – not to mention the good food and fresh, fresh fruit…
It was the best move I ever made!
