There is an old saying that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” The cliche gets more complicated when it comes to a gift for your mother, and particularly for the mother of your own children. Mother’s Day at Sotheby’s is filled with diamonds from high-end handbags to diamond encrusted time pieces.
Leading up to the holiday all about her, Sotheby’s has created a collection of buy it now diamond encrusted jewelry with a mother or expectant mother in mind. To a collector here is an opportunity for some of the finest jewelry in the world gathered together for one occasion.
Collectors Dashboard evaluates high-end collectibles as an alternative asset class. In this case, diamonds and jewelry are attracting the same capital that could have just as easily been invested into stocks or bonds. Many rare or unique diamonds now cost thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars (and some even higher). Whether these fall into the investment angle for a profit or as a store of value will depend upon each buyer.
