Fancy coloured diamonds prices remains “stable” in Q4 2014, says FCRF

The January 2015 statistics of the Fancy Color Diamond Index™ (FCDI) developed by The Fancy Color Research Foundation (FCRF) shows that price level of fancy coloured diamonds remained “stable” against falling commodity prices in Q4 of 2014.

The Index was first launched in November 2014 to track and analyse the change in market price of coloured diamonds as an alternative asset class. It is a first-of-its-kind market analysis tool designed for the three most traded fancy coloured diamond categories.

The January 2015 index suggests that the values of pink, yellow and blue fancy diamonds have increased by 167 percent on average since January 2005, putting other leading assets to shame in a similar period. According to the index read,fancy coloured diamonds prices remained “practically unchanged” in the period between 1 October and 31 December 2014.

According to the 'RapNet Diamond Index', the prices of one-carat white diamond declined by 5 percent over the same period, while 0.30 carat diamond prices declined by 9.2 percent.

“Unsurprisingly, the fourth quarter data collected by the FCRF team reaffirms our knowledge and understanding from the last decade that fancy colour diamonds are a separate niche, almost non-correlated to white diamonds.” said Ishaia Gol, a member of the board of advisors for FCRF.
