More On Jewelry As An Investment

No doubt jewelry often finds its way into a safe deposit box.

And wouldn’t it be nice if that prized adornment not only maintained its value but even appreciated in price while sitting in the vault?

Earlier this year the topic of jewelry investing came up on the blog when I discussed a January 17 piece on the Town & Country website entitled “Is Jewelry the Last Brilliant Investment?”

And last month, I spotted an article over on The Huffington Post website that also focused on jewelry as an investment. From Beth Bernstein in “Is Jewelry A Shining Investment For Your Future,” published on March 21:

Every five years or so, I take stock of my life. At 50, I was concerned with fitness, health, and the trials and tribulations of dating ‘again’ after the break-up long-term relationship. Today, as a 55 year-old single woman, author and sole business owner, I looked around my Manhattan Lincoln-center area rental apartment and when I take stock, I realize I have no stocks or… bonds, real estate, nor do I own my home. Had I made mistakes and questionable choices with my finances until middle age? Would I ever be able to retire?

Bernstein continued:

Recently, I was explaining this to a friend, 40-year expert in antique and signed jewelry, Michael Khoridpour of M Khordipour and founder of EstateDiamondJewelry.com. He looked down at a fine Art Deco cushion cut Ceylon sapphire with diamond surround, which rested upon my finger and then looked up at me quizzically.

“Oh Michael,” I said, “Have spent too much on my obsession with antique and period jewelry. He got straight to the point that I seemed to be missing while in my anxious state. He said, “You have a safety deposit box full of antique, signed and rare high quality pieces which have held their value and/or appreciated with time. You have assets. It might be different than real estate or paper but you have invested in your future.”

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

It’s an interesting and enlightening read, which you view in its entirety here on The Huffington Post website.

Related Reading: Jewelry Investing Article In Town & Country Magazine

This afternoon I was surfing the Internet when I came across an article about jewelry investing on the website of Town & Country, the venerable monthly American lifestyle magazine. In “Is Jewelry the Last Brilliant Investment?” (published January 17), Stellene Volandes discussed “the role of stones and jewels as a new asset class” and the recent formation of Arcot Finance (“a fine gem investment firm”). She also interviewed a number of jewelry/gemstone experts.

At one point in the piece Volandes penned:

Legends of Russian and French aristocrats fleeing revolution with diamonds sewn into their hems still resonate. “I know people who want to buy some diamonds to put away. They know in uncertain times they can sell them quickly,” says jewelry expert Chris Del Gatto, whose eponymous firm specializes in buying and selling from private collections. He has bought and sold more pieces than almost anyone on the market. “They also know they can take the stones with them. You can’t do that with a building. It’s a bunker mentality.”

[Arcot Finance’s Henri] Barguirdjian certainly has experience with the idea of stones as a solid investment. Clients have asked him for lots worth $1 million for each of their grandchildren, to be stored in safe deposit boxes, knowing that they will appreciate in value. “They see it as a safe haven,” he says…
