A Canadian company has been contacting me with letters, brochures, and phone calls offering colored diamonds as
an investment. Yes? No? Keith.

I would make this my subsidizing anchor investment for my timeshare portfolio. :)

Thank you, everyone, for the terse and fatherly (or motherly)
advice. Just kidding! It is probable that I am old enough to be
your father, or perhaps even grandfather. Won't say exactly.
Anyway, how about an internet seller claiming to be direct
importer from foreign mines at wholesale to individual buyer? KO

Not likely...

I advice everyone, not having vast knowledge regarding diamonds or other gemstones, not to buy as investment. Besides I am of the opinion gems are for beauty and exposure not for your safe or bank deposit box. :)
