Over the last two decades, investors around the globe have suffered through several periods of volatility in financial markets. From the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997 and the internet bubble bursting in 2001, to the great recession beginning in 2008 and the European debt crisis in 2011, the global financial markets have not been this volatile since the end of the roaring 20’s going into the Great Depression.

During this time period, rare colored diamonds have become one of the most important rare collectible as a means of preserving their wealth and owning and enjoying something of intrinsic value and inherent beauty that has stood the test of time for centuries.
