A gemstone is characterized by the factors of naturalness, beauty, and rarity. This sequence can be also regarded in ascending order as increasing in value.
Investment gemstones must be natural.
The beauty of a gemstone is defined by its cut, color, clarity, and carats (the "4Cs"). Its rarity is directly correlated with its geological rarity. The better and more rare each of its 4Cs is, the higher its investment potential.
Certificates are likewise an absolute must for investment gemstones.
The wealthy discovered the investment potential in gemstones long ago. In Antwerp (Belgium) alone, between 30-40 billion euros worth of gemstones are traded each year. That is nearly 8% of the Belgian gross domestic product.

Alexander Streeb brings together experts from gemology and investing.
Alexander Streeb (born 1960) is the founder and managing director of the German Gemstone House.
Mr. Streeb is a renowned financial expert and has been active in the financial services industry for 35 years. He is the co-founder of the wealth management firm German Capital Management AG, which manages assets of around 200 million euros and is among the most successful wealth management companies in Germany. In the spring of 2018, after over 20 years on the executive committee and supervisory board, he left the company to concentrate fully on the German Gemstone House. In addition to his technical knowledge in financial matters, his expertise lies in the areas of entrepreneurial development, sales, and communication.
He translated his passion for colored gemstones into his profession in order to bring the centuries-old asset class of colored gemstones back to the attention of national and international investors by making the investments simple, understandable, and transparent. To that end he brought together a team of international experts, with a deep foundation of specialized knowledge, and developed a quality-controlled system for the acquisition of investment gemstones.
Risk Management Also Means Protecting Assets Against Inflation and Losses in Value.
Financial regression occurs when prime interest rates are kept very low by a central bank for an extended period, while at the same time inflation is substantially higher than interest rates.
When interest rates are close to zero, inflation of just two to three per cent is enough to gradually pull wealth out of the hands of the wealthy and reallocate it for the benefit of the state.
It is no accident that there has been a continuous push into the stable value of tangible assets in recent years.
Colored gemstones (along with gold and diamonds) have outlived all currencies, survived every financial crisis and currency reform, and always maintained and in part even increased their value.
