SOURCING - main service
Our Global Sourcing Team has access to all modern facilities to research, source the most appropriate diamonds and negotiate the best deals for you. Team members are qualified gemmologists and diamond experts with more than 80 years of combined industry experience.
We source via global marketplace and have access to stocks of diamonds in Northern America, Europe, Asia and Africa. We simply get into the initial wholesale market right after the cutting and polishing when prices are still at their lowest level. We source diamonds for you and lock in at these lowest prices.
We offer certification services through all major international and Australian certification and grading laboratories. A diamond's value is based on objective characteristics and the relationship of these characteristics determines the price of a diamond.
We can help you send your diamond for certification and grading to any of these laboratories - Gemological Institute of America (GIA), American Gemological Society (AGS), European Gemological Laboratory (EGL)and locally to Diamond Certification Laboratory of Australia (DCLA).
All IFFL sourced diamonds have Australian independent valuation to ensure integrity is maintained and is part of your IFFL Probity Folio that you will received with your diamond delivery.
Additionally we strongly recommend to independently value all your precious stone and fine jewellery not only for integrity purposes but also for insurance requirements. It is always good to have the reassurance that your purchase and decision are correct and that the value is within the expected range.
IFFL strongly recommends to obtain insurance for all your precious gemstones, diamonds and fine jewellery. After all we ensure our cars, our homes, life and health. So why not our other valuables?
With Australian independent valuation it is easier to obtain valuable jewellery insurance. We can help you to find appropriate and reputable insurance companies and will pass on their details to you. In no way we are affiliated with anyone of these companies.
So where do you store your valuables? We recommend you store them with Australian independent and bank operated safe deposit boxes conveniently located in major CBDs and business hubs.
Your insurance costs may be different if you store your diamonds and valuables in safe deposit box with one of the major providers. This may also be a requirement for SMSF investors and their auditors.
If you decide at any point in time that you would like to sell your diamonds we can help you access Global marketplace and list and sell your diamonds though our vast network across all continents.
To sell diamonds we use our global network of contacts, jewellers and dealers through online marketplace and direct contacts. We can help you find the best road to appropriate marketplace.
Whether you are buying the diamond or precious gemstone to set in a jewellery item for yourself or a special someone you will be saving substantially and in a number ways.
Once you tell us your requirements, criteria and give us your instructions our gemstone expert researchers will scour the world, contact wholesalers and visit all marketplace to find a suitable diamond or precious gemstones for you. After we find a few suitable diamonds that fit your criteria we will present them to you so you can choose.
The old adage for investing is buying low selling high. Where no one can predict the future, well certainly not us, IFFL can certainly help you to buy low.
And buying low is what it takes for a good investment. Imagine buying a beautiful diamond at $50,000 and selling in 10 years time for $60,000. And making $10,000 and buying that same diamond at wholesale level and paying only $35,000 and making a huge $25,000 profit when you sell it. So how does this all work? The process is fairly simple.
