What You Should Know About Borrowing Against Diamonds

Now that we’ve outlined what you can expect when borrowing against your diamonds at Qollateral, let’s dive deeper into what you should know when considering a collateral loan with us.

There are several factors that make a diamond hold value, which will affect the amount of a monetary loan when borrowing against a diamond. The most essential is whether it is a natural diamond (also known as a mined diamond) or a lab-grown diamond. The latter is far less valuable, and we’ve gone into detail on why that is in our blog post, Borrowing Against Diamonds: Choosing Between Natural and Lab-Grown Diamonds. We currently do not offer collateral loans against lab-grown diamonds. (You can check out a list of the assets we do accept here.)

Another factor is the diamond’s quality, which you may know as the 4Cs—clarity, cut, color, and carat. We’ve gone over the most desirable characteristics of a diamond in our Complete Guide to Choosing Diamonds.

Certified diamonds hold the most value, especially when the paperwork is presented with the stones. When you borrow against diamonds with a certification, you will likely have a higher value to loan against due to authenticity. We recommend keeping your grading certificate along with the receipt and any other accompanying documentation in a protective plastic sleeve to maximize the value of your diamond if and when you ever decide to borrow against it or sell it. This is on our list of things to bring to your appointment at Qollateral.

Why Are Diamonds Great Assets To Loan Against?

Diamonds are a solid investment to borrow against as they will always be valuable. Finite in quantity and rare, there will always be demand for natural diamonds. In fact, the value of diamonds can only increase as time goes by and diamonds continue to become more and more rare. They are universally desirable, precious, and timeless.

They are also extremely durable. Diamonds never tarnish or change in appearance. They can never be scratched. In fact, diamonds are among the hardest materials in the world and can cut through highly dense material with precision. You can be sure that your diamond will retain its beauty forever.
