Why invest in gemstones?

  • Gemstones are small and easy to transport and concentrate their value in a very small volume.
  • They are easy to pass on, for example to further generations.
  • They have been used to store wealth for over 5000 years.
  • Worldwide sources of gemstones (especially rubies and sapphires, but also diamonds) are becoming exhausted.
  • Earlier source countries in Asia as well as Russia are now creating high demand.
  • Auctions are raising market prices.
  • Naturally coloured gemstones have seen a constant, strong increase in value for over 40 years and are considered to be “non-volatile”, meaning they will hold their value securely.
  • Gemstones are traded internationally.
  • Gemstones from THE GLOW GEM are only sold along with an internationally recognized, independent certificate from a gemmological institute.
  • Gemstones are the most emotional way of storing wealth: nothing else of such high value can be worn so close to the skin and thus touched so often every day.
  • Gemstones are easy to store, require no effort and no servicing.
  • Gemstones have no metallic characteristics and are thus easy to hide.

Market development and performance

Since 1995 the market prices for naturally coloured, untreated gemstones have at least tripled.

Rubies from Burma have increased in value ten-fold in 27 years,

while sapphires from Burma have increased almost eight-fold.

Long term, rubies and sapphires have performed considerably better than

both gold and the Dow Jones.

Naturally coloured, untreated gemstones are non-volatile

and are not affected by wordwide economic events.
