While lab grown diamonds cannot be re-sold for a good price, it only cost 10% of natural diamonds and is very similar to natural both in terms of appearance and quality. For example, a 1 carat diamond being re-sold for 60% of the price means a loss of HK$20000. And this amount is enough for a purchase of 4 pieces of 1-carat lab grown diamonds.

3. The price of platinum has the potential to rise

Platinum is the rarest metal on earth for the time being, and its excavation rate is way lower than that of gold. Platinum is mostly more expensive than gold during 1985 and 2011. Due to economic reasons in the recent years, gold become a relatively risk-free investment and thus the price of gold also reach its peak over the last 35 years. Therefore, some analysis suggests that the rise of gold price is reaching an end. On the contrary, there is lots of room the price of platinum to rise.

4. Platinum and lab grown diamonds are everlasting

We pursuit the shine, beauty and everlastingness of natural diamond. But we eventually have our own diamond ring, we tend to leave it inside the safe or jewelry box because of how valuable it is.
