A trading platform for hard-asset investors.

The Diamond Marketplace for Hard-Asset Investors

As a hard-asset investor, you seek protection against inflation.
But, even though diamonds are the most portable of the hard assets, you’ve probably avoided them because:

  • Retail store markups mean a big loss when you’re ready to sell. (High bid/ask spread)
  • How do you sell? A pawnshop is not a good option.
  • Tracking value over time is difficult with non-fungible assets like diamonds.
Icecap solves these historic problems with a technology-based, two-way marketplace designed for the needs of investors, not jewelry buyers.

Benefits of Icecap's Diamond Marketplace

Preserve Your Investment Value​

By trading diamonds in a near-frictionless environment, you buy and sell closer to wholesale value.  Thus you don’t lose half your value from the moment you “drive it out of the showroom.”

Always Know Your Diamond's Value

Our platform uses patent-pending virtual-fungibility™ technology to track your diamond’s approximate value from the time it was purchased, and lets you re-list your diamond with a few mouse clicks.

Enjoy Your Asset Before You Trade

When you buy a diamond, you can choose to either vault it, or take delivery.  Unlike bullion, diamonds can be enjoyed as jewelry while still serving your portfolio. Return your diamond to the vault when you wish to sell.

What Makes Diamonds a Great Asset?

The Hardest Asset

Because diamonds usually outperform inflation, they're a useful way to diversify your hard asset portfolio.

Private and Portable

With diamonds, self-custody is a real option. They can be stored privately in any location their owner deems secure. Equally, a million dollars of diamonds can travel discretely, whether in a pocket or worn as jewelry. That much wealth in gold could not be carried.

Beloved and Beautiful

When not concealed, diamonds thrive in plain sight. More than a store of wealth, they are wealth—and can be enjoyed by you or a loved one, purely for their beauty.

How it Works

Trade Close to Wholesale Price.
Icecap sells newly-issued diamonds at a 10% margin over wholesale cost. The industry average for diamond e-tailers is about 25%.

Enjoy Investment-Grade Liquidity.
Icecap screens its diamonds to those with characteristics that make them easier to sell, such as double grading reports.

Access a 2-Way Marketplace.
Icecap operates a buy/sell marketplace in which investment-buyers, market-makers, and diamond industry wholesalers compete against each other to minimize spreads, and maximize liquidity.

Leverage Patent-Pending Technology.
Icecap’s proprietary virtual-fungibility technology makes pricing transparent, and delivers to you—the hard asset investor—a close to “metals trading” experience.

Take Delivery Anytime.
If you chose to vault your diamond, you will receive a warehouse receipt, which you can redeem at anytime and take delivery of the diamond—to store privately or enjoy as jewelry while in your portfolio. Return your diamond to the vault when you’re ready to sell.
