Diamond Jewellery Market Growth in East

Recent figures suggest that the market for diamond jewellery in the near future is expected to be driven by increased growth in India, China and the Gulf.

These emerging Eastern markets have demonstrated significant growth in the past few years, with diamonds proving increasingly popular as both a luxury item and a long-term investment.

By 2015, it is predicted that India, China and the Gulf will equal or surpass the market share of the US, which currently stands at 35 to 40 per cent. In 2010, India and China were already up 31 and 25 per cent respectively.

However, with worldwide reserves of diamonds at an all-time low, this new growth in Eastern countries means the balance between supply and demand is set to become more mismatched than ever; forecasts warn that demand is likely to outpace lower levels of diamond supply for many years to come.

With diamonds only getting rarer, it’s likely that the value of diamonds will continue to ascend on a global scale in the same way that gold and silver prices have already, increasing the natural treasure’s worth in the long term.

Although diamond prices have already begun to reflect the imbalance between supply and demand, the view that diamonds are an ‘investment vehicle’ that has the potential to grow – or at least remain the same – means customers are continuing to buy.

When compared to the inflated prices of gold, diamonds also – for the time being – pose a more affordable alternative in an unsteady economy.

It is yet to be seen how the rising value of diamonds will affect the production and/or prices of popular jewellery brands, popular in both the East and West, which feature diamond-encrusted pieces in their collections. For now, however, fans of Pandora jewellery and the like need not worry.

In an economic downturn, precious metals such as gold and silver are sound investments; however, traditional investing doesn’t yield tangible goods that can be handed down through generations. Investing in high-end silver pillboxes and gifts, as both keepsakes and investments, can return an increase in value. In 1964, the value of the silver used to make coins overtook the coin’s face value. Similarly, the average silver pillbox — containing 10 quarters’ worth of silver — has a melt value that far exceeds its face value of $2.50.

SilverMineGifts.com features a wide range of classic silver items such as sterling silver gifts, sterling silver jewelry, silver baby gifts,engraved baby gifts, silver barware and bar gifts, silver children’s gifts, silver kids bracelets, children’s silver jewelry, engravable gifts, silver napkin rings, charm bracelets, silver chains, lockets, sterling silver pendants, silver magnifying glasses, silver cufflinks and money clip, silver pillboxes, thimbles, and a variety of silver polish and sterling silver jewelry care products.
