PROGRAM OUR REMARKETING Natural color diamonds have historically doubled in value every four 4 to six 6 years at the wholesale level As we warrant and represent that our prices are the least expensive anywhere we offer a straightforward no nonsense re marketing program that is not offered by any of our competitors Every diamantaire jeweler dealer and broker in natural color diamonds is in the business of selling diamonds They are not in the business of re purchasing their clients diamonds unless they are repurchasing them at a steep discount from the original price nor are they in the business of re marketing their clients diamonds Their primary interest is to sell their own inventory and not necessarily those of their customers because their profit margins are higher If a client has paid a retail price for their diamond s the re marketing strategy becomes that much more problematic because the potential appreciation of those diamonds does not equate to a 4 to 6 year hold Potentially it could take a significantly longer time line well beyond 4 to 6 years for those diamonds to reach their original price or market value In reality the market value of any diamond is determined by what a willing buyer dealing at arm s length will offer to a motivated seller We have a totally different outlook namely we encourage our clients to come back to us in 4 years or more at their discretion to allow us the opportunity to assist them in the remarketing of the diamonds that they have purchased from our company because had they purchased their 6 diamonds from us they would have paid well below retail and market price How do we do this Firstly natural color diamonds that are acquired for investment purposes and not necessarily for aesthetic reasons are medium to long term investments If you are considering the acquisition of natural color diamonds for investment purposes only with a short term horizon we dissuade you from making any investment in natural color diamonds However should you have a longer term horizon and you acquire quality natural color diamonds history has shown that appreciation of 10 to 25 or more per annum is not uncommon On this basis we agree to re market our clients natural color diamonds on or after the fourth anniversary date of their acquisitions by listing our clients diamonds on our website at a price which is reflective of the appreciated value of the diamond s if any The price so determined shall be in accordance with the market price of similar natural color diamonds offered for sale at the time of listing Our clients natural color diamonds shall only be listed for resale at a market

CUT FOUR C S The value of a rare diamond is determined via a universal grading system known in the diamond industry as the Four C s Cut carat weight clarity and color are the four traditional and primary determining factors in confirming the authenticity of a diamond color or otherwise as well as assisting appraisers in determining value The most crucial of the Four C s for generating the sparkle or light performance of a diamond is the cut In an ideal diamond cut light should be reflected through the body of the diamond and back out through the top or table of the stone In lesser quality pieces or more shallow cuts light will leak out through the bottom of the diamond This dramatically affects our perception of the beauty of the diamond and can affect in natural color diamonds how deeply the color of the stone can be visualized Radiant Cushion Pear Emerald Trillion Princess Round Oval Heart Marquise 26
