Fancy Color Diamond Index reflects stable prices in Q4 2014

19 february 2015
The Fancy Color Research Foundation (FCRF) published the Fancy Color Diamond Index, first started in 2014 to measure and analyze the performance of these rare diamonds as an alternative asset class. The January 2015 Index shows that fancy color diamonds are continuing to exhibit consistent price levels, against a backdrop of commodity value declines in the fourth quarter of 2014.
The 2014 index revealed that fancy color diamonds, across the categories of pinks, yellows and blues, have increased in value by 167 percent on average since January 2005, outperforming other leading assets in a similar period.
According to the most recent index read in January 2015, fancy color diamonds remained practically unchanged in Q4 2014. The company perceives this performance as further testimony to the favorable supply-demand dynamics of fancy color diamonds.
Meanwhile, 1 carat diamonds prices declined by 5 percent over the same period and 0.30 carat diamond prices declined by as much as 9.2 percent, according to the Rapaport Group's RapNet Diamond Index (RAPI™).
Ishaia Gol, a member of the board of advisors for The FCRF, commented, “Unsurprisingly, the fourth-quarter data collected by the FCRF team reaffirms our knowledge and understanding from the last decade that fancy color diamonds are a separate niche, almost non-correlated to white diamonds.”
The FCRF is an independent, non-profit organization formed to promote fair trade, ethics and transparency in the fancy color diamond retail, wholesale and mining industry. The FCRF activity includes the development of innovative research and digital tools that will support the fancy color diamond retail selling process for consumers, retailers and collectors.
