Buying the Blue Moon is like buying the best painting from one of the grand masters. Thanks to its rarity and purity, this is one of the best investment opportunities available in today’s global diamond market. The opportunity to purchase a 12 carat fancy Fancy Vivid Blue Internally Flawless only comes around once in a blue moon. Investors should grab the opportunity while they can. Even if the Blue Moon fetches more than the Sotheby’s high estimate of $55m, in 20 years time that price will look like a fantastic bargain.
