We've all heard of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," but it seems diamonds are also becoming an investor's best friend.
Rough diamond prices have jumped nearly a third since 2005 and are likely to rise another 20 percent by 2017, bolstered by demand in Asian economic powerhouses China and India, according to wealth research firm Wealth-X.
