Gems  have always been a store of value and a vehicle for capital appreciation. What was once the sole domain of the wealthy, gem collecting is now a lucrative investment opportunity open to virtually anyone.

Invest for profit
The Gem market  has developed into a significant and growing industry. In recent years investors in the market have profited from a long period of sustained growth confirming its place as a compelling alternative to traditional asset classes. With the evermore frequent sales and reports of record prices, gems and jewelery  have attracted an increasing number of new collectors — most with an investment strategy.

Invest for Pleasure
Unlike other collectables, you can enjoy your gems or jewelery without reducing their value. Infact gemstones have the unique and enduring benefit of potential appreciation in value even as they sit in a bank vault. A “buy and hold” strategy, long regarded as a key to successful wealth creation, is easy when the “holding” part of the strategy is so rewarding.

Invest for Diversification
Unlike property and shares, quality gems and jewelery  is largely insulated from the volatility of investment markets providing vital diversification when markets are falling. The gem market is considerably less volatile and is less sensitive to economic crises and geopolitical events than other assets. Compared to many alternative investments, gem investment also involves small transaction and holding costs.

The strength of gems as a wealth creating vehicle over a medium to long term can also make an excellent addition to self-managed super funds provided certain rules are followed.
