In a first for the diamond industry, elikia diamond, will launch its first collection of jewellery to be titled as nfts on the ethereum blockchain. The aim is to finance the modernization of the mine in the democratic republic of the congo with the pre-sale of nfts.
Elikia diamond plans a sale of 2520 mintpass to claim an nft linked to a unique piece of jewellery from a collection that will be produced by elikia. From this collection of 2520 jewels, a nft will be randomly linked to one mintpass inside a specific quality level and a category such as a ring, earrings or a pendant, chosen by the buyer at the mintpass purchase. There are 3 levels (level 1, 2, and 3) depending on the purity, the color, and size of the stones. This means that it is possible to buy an exceptional stone because the stones have random purities and sizes, although the 3 levels will avoid too big a gap.
The company proposes a new standard in the diamond industry with the systematic creation of an nft linked to all jewellery creations holding certificates of origin and quality. From the mine to the customer, for a better-informed purchasing decision.
Advantages for investors
A mintpass can give access to a jewel with more value than the starting price because it depends on the production, but in any case, the jewel will respect the price range of the 3 quality levels.
As all certificates will be attached to the nft, himself linked to the diamond via a laser-marked serial number, all diamonds have the highest transparency and traceability for an informed purchase decision. This transparency also makes the jewellery more valuable.
The improved market liquidity made possible by nfts is an interesting diversification for investors because the jewellery can be resold without having been worn if the aim is speculative, otherwise, the buyer has the jewellery delivered.
Last but not least, diamonds are a safe form of investment and allow you to increase the value of your assets over the medium to long term. As shown in the chart below, in 5 years the diamond price index has increased by 30%.
