The Psychology of Investing in Colored Diamonds
The concept of diamonds as an investment is a phenomena that took root in the convergence of science, technology and commoditization standards during 1979. This was a turning point for diamonds which had served only as a metaphor of love and object of material wealth, that later led to a boom and bust within one year. Learn how the market was driven by using past-performance models of supply-and-demand and the liquidity factor that later became the pin that burst the bubble.
