Dear Diamond Chat Forum users,
I have set funds aside for experimental investing. I would like to invest some of my money in diamonds. At this point in time it is extremely important to me to have a liquid investment. This main theme guides my following questions. I would appreciate any help from your wealth of knowledge that you could offer.
1. What Diamond (Cut, Carat, Clarity, and Color) is currently the most liquid on the market place. By liquid I refer to a diamond that has the maximum number of buyers at any given point in time so I may easily off load my investment.
2. What combination of cut, carat, clarity, and color makes it such that the marginal return on spending an extra dollar in upgrading to a higher quality diamond proves diminishing returns (i.e. at what point is money better invested in another diamond with the same characteristics rather than upgrading a given diamond). Please keep in mind that I am again with this questions talking within the realms of the extremely liquid market (i.e I do not want to venture into the rare diamonds that are hard to sell. I am looking for the best investment with extremely liquid characteristics).
I appreciate your help.
