Bullion dealer the first online precious metals firm to offer high-quality, investment grade and near-colorless diamonds to the general public

Dallas, Texas – July 22, 2013 – Throughout history, diamonds have been one of the most highly coveted assets, and a symbol of commitment for couples in the western world. Never has it been a convenient vehicle for growing or protecting wealth. In response to high consumer demand, and exploding interest in diamonds in general, online dealer Provident Metals, LLC (https://www.providentmetals.com/) is expanding product offerings to include diamond bullion melee. Investors will be able to order physical diamonds alongside other highly popular metals like gold, silver, copper, platinum and palladium. ProvidentMetals.com is the first precious metals dealer to offer diamond bullion for sale.

For the initial release, three one carat bullion “melee” products will be available, and include:

  • 1 to 5 points
  • 5 to 10 points
  • 10 to 15 points

Customers will receive their diamond bullion investment in a CerticardR security case for long-term storage and protection. Each case includes one carat total of at least grade 12 diamonds. Cuts in each case are mixed but contain predominantly round, near-colorless stones.

“We wanted to give ordinary investors access to an affordable safe haven diamond product,” comments Joseph Merrick, President and CEO of Provident Metals. “Our innovative diamond bullion Certicard gives anyone the ability to take delivery of a long-term investment in diamonds.”

General interest in diamond investing has been growing for several years. One example of this increased interest includes a request filed by GemShares with the Securities and Exchange Commission this past April to begin offering a physically-backed Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) for diamonds. Investors cite high portability, value preservation and worldwide demand as their reasons for investing in diamonds.

“Many of our customers favor tangible assets for long-term investment, and there is an increased appetite for diamonds as a tangible alternative,” explains Merrick. “To show our commitment to quality and physical diamond investing, the back of each CerticardR will include my signature.”
