Today, Rosan Diamond’s clients include both concierge services, including UK-based luxury lifestyle management company Insignia, and directly to individual clients.

The majority of Rosan Diamond’s direct clients are businessmen from Eastern Europe, CIS, Malta, Switzerland and Latin America, Rosan Diamond’s business development director Ruslan Aybazov told Business Insider.

According to Bloomberg, Insignia — one of Rosan Diamond’s concierge partners, which is launching a new credit card service for members in 2020 — has 800 clients around the World. Approximately 50 are from the US, one quarter of whom are billionaires.

Euro technology Each card takes between six to nine weeks to craft, once it has been designed.

Design development takes anywhere from three weeks to three months, Aybazov said. That includes both premade designs and custom designs for clients.

Designs range from botanical scenes to reproductions of historical palaces to more whimsical and modern designs like pandas and planets. Each card is unique — while some are developed as a series, each iteration features different materials or color schemes. 

Premade art collection card prices currently range from $18,000 to $34,000. Custom designs, on average, cost more than premade designs. The most expensive custom designed art collection card sold for $50,000, Aybazov told Business Insider.

Euro technology Cards incorporate “chip and pin” technology and can be used anywhere VISA is accepted with the exception of ATMs.

For ATM and online use, a client’s bank will issue a plastic companion card with a credit card number and CVV.

If a client does not have an account with a Rosan Diamond partner bank, a Rosan Diamond and VISA representative will contact the client’s bank to talk through an arrangement. 

Euro technology Once completed, a card is shipped to a client’s bank in a luxury wooden box.
