Over the last 30 years, the value of rare, precious gemstones — such as a 10 carats Natural Unheated Pigeon Blood Ruby or 30 carats Cornflower Blue Sapphire — has increased 30 times. This value hike was caused mainly by investors’ desire to find an alternative avenue of investment to secure wealth over a long period of time so as to pass to the next generation.

By the end of 2020, there will be more than 20 million high net worth individuals (HNWIs). As global economies slow and traditional financial markets grow uncertain, HNWIs will be looking for innovative ways to safeguard their wealth and grow it on a long-term basis. Most HNWIs are turning to alternative investment like contemporary art, tech start-ups, digital currencies, nostalgia and novelty investments, and gems and jewelry. These investments are not only rare and real, but they are also passion-driven.
Gems and jewelry are among the most favored passion investments among HNWIs in the world. Buyers have proven to be the dominant force in global high-end jewelry auction houses like Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Bonham’s, Phillips, China Guardian, Beijing Poly, and more.
It is unknown how many family offices exist in the current market, but how can we know that their number increases daily? The answer is in the increase of HNWIs worldwide.
As the need for professional wealth management grows, HNWIs are looking for Multi-Family Offices (MFO) that will properly manage their assets and investments across a varied spectrum. They expect these offices to give them a competitive edge over their peers. Larger MFOs will have their own specialty offices to manage specific assets for their clients, such as art. Since these MFOs focus solely on their clients’ art investments, there is a gap in services focused on managing gems investment. In fact, no MFO offers this kind of dedicated and active management of precious gemstones to date.
That is where richblu GIT's comes in. We help family offices manage gem investment for their clients by designing a custom-tailored plan for them, suited to clients’ specific needs and requirements.
Financial Institutions & Investment Funds
Over the last 25-30 years, there have been many attempts by larger investment institutions to create an investment vehicle to invest directly or indirectly in the gems industry. Some have managed to do so via public mining companies, while others have achieved this by investing in public, brand name luxury companies.
There are funds that claim to have invested in real assets, but the majority of attempts have failed for one simple reason: the gem industry and the investment community want different things. The gem industry believes in discretion, while the investment community desires transparency.
richblu GIT's serves as a bridge between the two worlds. We help financial institutions and investment funds understand how the gem trading world works, showing them how to successfully invest in a real gem asset. We also facilitate the acquisition, deposition, and crucial evaluation of the asset.
Not For Profit Organizations
Over the years, NFPOs have attracted donations from donors and philanthropists, most prominently in the form of cash and real estate. With real assets now gaining increased value, NFPOs are seeking works of contemporary art, precious gems, and digital currencies. richblu GIT's helps NFPOs to attract more donations in the form of precious gems and also evaluates and appraises them correctly.
“We offer clarity and vision so that you can get the most out of your gems investment.”
richblu GIT's was born out of a need to inform and assist investors, who up until now have been gambling with their investment, due to a lack of verifiable information on the market.
