Sometimes in life different worlds collide, as they turn out sharing common interests. The diamond industry now has yet another correlation to the investment and collectors culture. Diamond enthusiasts look for impressive pieces, diamond collectors seek out the most unusual and valuable items possible, while investors often look for potential to earn a significant future gain.
Diamonds are often typical in that they are beautiful, rare, or both. Recently, an item that would interest all three of these markets has been released.

The meeting took place on Friday May 3, where the laser-inscribed diamonds were offered for purchase. A total of 26 diamonds were created for this exclusive event, and included diamonds ranging in size from 0.75 carats to 5 carats. The diamonds were all square and round diamonds, and ready to be mounted onto a piece of jewelry including a diamond ring, pendant, or pair of earrings.

In addition to the opportunity to purchase loose diamonds, there was also the option of buying a diamond signed by Warren Buffett that had already been set in a pendant. There were 25 pendant necklaces with 0.5-carat signed diamonds available as well at the annual shareholders meeting. A laser inscribed signature does not necessarily speak to everyone, but many given the rare chance to own an exclusive piece like these diamonds and pendants would pounce immediately. Needless to say, these items will become collectables because of the inscription, as other similar future items will be.
