De Beers, the world's biggest diamond mining company, plans to raise diamond prices by 5 per cent every year in a phased manner. This means diamantaires could no longer hope for diamond prices to come down, even when the demand for polished diamond is high or average across the world The decision has come when the Indian diamond industry is buoyed by the increase in the demand for polished diamonds from the US, Hong Kong, China, UAE and other diamond consuming nations. As per the official statistics by the Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), India's polished diamond export increased by 25.47 per cent at Rs 1,18,870 crore in 2013-14 compared to previous year. The growth in polished diamond exports was witnessed after September 2013 and the trend is still continuing. Sources said De Beers rough diamond prices gained about 10 per cent in 2013 after more than doubling in the past five years as the US economy recovered from the global financial crisis and China's burgeoning middle class bought more gems. The Anglo American, which owns 85 per cent of De Beers, wants its units to deliver a 15 per cent return on capital by 2016. Last year, diamonds made up about 19 per cent of Anglo American's $33 billion sales.

We recently had a husband and wife request that we use a .63 carat family diamond and incorporate it into a pendant for their daughter's graduation gift. We used 19k white gold and inset the diamond into a crescent shape. They were very pleased with the result and know this is a gift their daughter will cherish for many years to come.
We recently completed this beautiful diamond ring design for a woman who wanted to treat herself for her 50th birthday. After a complete diamond education session and looking at different diamonds to suit her style and budget, she fell in love with this beautiful champagne diamond. She has a lovely golden brown skin tone so we agreed this would look gorgeous on her and it does!
