The Romanovs, a unique 179-carat rough diamond, was recovered from Nyurbinskaya kimberlite pipe in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) on October 9, 2015.

The rough diamond was cut and polished by the most skilled and experienced craftsmen from DIAMONDS ALROSA. They completed their work in March 2017.

All in all, they took a year and a half to manufacture the diamonds.

Gem Diamonds Enjoying Large-Stone Boom

CEO Clifford Elphick on Asian Demand, Rough Prices, and Why He’s Selling Diamonds in Israel


RAPAPORT... As a producer of large rough stones, Gem Diamonds relies on high-end consumer demand more than many companies in the industry do. Fortunately for the London-based miner, the recovery of the Asian market this year has ensured strong appetite for its high-value diamonds.

The Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair in September “surprised everybody” in how positive it was for the big-stone market, company CEO Clifford Elphick (pictured) tells Rapaport News.

“It’s spilled into people replenishing their stocks. At the top end of the market, it looks good,” says the executive, who was in Israel last month for the inaugural viewing of the miner’s large rough at the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE).

Demand for large polished goods has increased: the RapNet Diamond Index (RAPI™) for 3-carat polished diamonds rose 4.5% in the first 10 months of the year. Elphick hinted that this was partly due to a recovery in the Far East, which contains some of the most important consumer markets for higher-end diamonds.

Asian equation

“The US is still the key, but certainly China is increasingly important, especially in the larger stones,” Elphick explains. “It’s very interesting that financial analysts can’t help but be gloomy about China, [though].... Every month, year after year, China growth is 6.5% to 7%. Analysts always scramble for a reason, but say next month it will all fall off a cliff. I’m starting to disregard all these things.”

China’s gross domestic product increased 6.8% in the third quarter after growing 6.9% in the previous two, according to data provider Trading Economics. The world’s second-largest economy is comfortably on track to hit the government’s target of 6.5% growth for the year, news media quoted Chinese statistics chief Ning Jizhe as saying last month.

Hong Kong-based jewelers’ sales have also increased, as has their appetite for buying large polished diamonds. Chow Tai Fook spent $16.8 million on a green diamond at a Christie’s auction in May 2016, and splurged a record $71.2 million on a pink jewel at Sotheby’s in April this year.

This has all had a positive impact on the rough market and Gem Diamonds’ sales. In 2016, sales from the company’s Letšeng mine in Lesotho slumped 22%, while the group recorded losses of $144.1 million. This year, a shift to a more lucrative section of the mine resulted in higher production of 100-carat-plus diamonds. This, coupled with an improvement in large-stone demand, drove Letšeng sales up 19% in the third quarter.

Land of the profits?

It was this demand for large diamonds that brought Elphick to Israel, where the manufacturing sector specializes in cutting bigger goods and sending them on to trading or consumer markets.

Since the Letšeng mine opened in 2004, Gem Diamonds has exclusively sold its rough through tenders in Antwerp. However, Shai Schnitzer, chairman of IDE’s rough-diamond committee, “demonstrated to us very successfully that the nature of our goods is well-suited to Israeli manufacturers,” Elphick recalls.

“There are a number of very strong companies here who don’t travel to Antwerp, and it may work to do tenders here,” he says.

The company plans to hold four or five pilot viewings at the Israeli bourse, running until the middle of next year, and will continue to bring its diamonds to the Ramat Gan market eight times a year if the trial shows positive results. So far, indications are good: 50 companies signed up for the first viewing.

“We have a waiting list,” Elphick adds. “We didn’t realize it would be like this. It’s extremely encouraging.”

No alarm

Rough prices are growing. De Beers’ rough-price index — measuring like-for-like changes — increased 4% in the first half. Gem Diamonds’ July tender in Antwerp continued that trend, achieving an average price of $2,397 per carat — the highest the miner has seen since September 2015, according to its third-quarter trading update.

Yet Elphick is not raising the alarm about the impact of rising rough prices on midstream profitability, mainly because his company’s clients are generally faring better than those who deal in smaller stones. In addition, he says, because Gem Diamonds sells rough via tenders, rather than contract sales like De Beers and Alrosa hold, the company does not determine its own prices. Clients place their own bids on goods, instead of just choosing whether to accept or reject a stated price.

“We don’t round up diamantaires at the end of the barrel of a gun, take them into a room and force them to buy our rough,” the executive points out. “The prices are what the rough-diamond dealer wants to pay. We don’t set prices and ask people to pay those. I can’t comment on whether it’s a good price or a bad one.”

While he notes that customers’ inability to turn a profit filters back to the miners, he is optimistic about his client base. “We produce large, fine, top-quality rough. As I understand, there’s still good profitability for the industry in that area.”

Small change

In contrast, the company is working to sell its Ghaghoo mine in Botswana, which produces smaller goods, because prices for those diamonds have been sinking. A potential suitor is currently reviewing data on the asset with a view to buying it, and is making “good progress,” Elphick said.

That potential sale would leave Gem Diamonds as a one-mine company. This does not overly worry Elphick, who says the focus now is to increase Letšeng’s profitability. For instance, the company has been working with experts from the University of Johannesburg on technology to reduce diamond breakages by identifying precious stones in the kimberlite before they reach the crushers.

This would help preserve 100-carat-plus diamonds, the recovery of which fell from a peak of 11 in 2015 to just five in 2016, before increasing to six in the first nine of months of this year.

And getting involved in mergers and acquisitions is “not on our minds at the moment, but as a public company, you’re always in the market,” he adds. “We’re always looking at other opportunities, constantly. [But] there’s nothing that we’re actively considering.”

Graff Among Buyers at Record Pink Diamond Sale


Rio Tinto reported “double-digit” price growth at this year’s Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender, with Graff Diamonds among the companies putting in winning bids.

Collectors and jewelers from 11 countries bought the 58 pink, red and violet diamonds originating from the mine in Australia, Rio Tinto said Thursday. These included the radiant-cut, 2.11-carat, fancy red Argyle Everglow (pictured, below right), which sold to New York-based Optimum Diamonds for the highest price in the annual tender’s 33-year history.

Rio Tinto did not disclose the exact sum, as it does not share financial details of its annual tenders.

Optimum also won the radiant-cut, 0.91-carat, fancy deep grey-violet Argyle Liberté. Meanwhile, Graff snatched up the cushion-shaped, 2.42-carat, fancy purple-pink Argyle Avaline (above) — the largest pink in this year’s collection. Israel-based Leibish & Co. won three stones, a spokesperson for the company said.

“We will take great care to respect the delicate beauty of Argyle Avaline as we craft a setting for this exquisite and exceptionally rare diamond,” said Laurence Graff, founder and chairman of Graff Diamonds.

The tender achieved a “record result,” reflecting strong global demand for Argyle’s rare colored diamonds, Rio Tinto said.

“The market fundamentals for pink diamonds — strong demand for a product that is both limited and finite — continue to support their significant value appreciation,” said Alan Chirgwin, the miner’s vice president of sales and marketing for copper and diamonds.

The largest round diamond in auction history will feature in Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels sale in New York next month, carrying a price estimate of up to $6.2 million.

The 110.92-carat, L-color, faint brown, VS1-clarity loose diamond (pictured, right) holds a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) report showing it has excellent polish, cut and symmetry, Sotheby’s said Thursday. Its low estimate of $4.2 million would translate to $37,865 per carat, while the high estimate works out to $55,896 per carat.

However, the top lot of the auction is expected to be an emerald-cut, 5.69-carat, fancy vivid blue, VVS1-clarity diamond ring (left) with an estimated selling price of $12 million to $15 million, or up to $2.6 million per carat. The diamond may have the potential for a cutter to make it internally flawless, the auction house pointed out.

“We’re thrilled to present supreme examples of the world’s most sought-after jewels and gemstones this season,” said Gary Schuler, chairman of Sotheby’s jewelry division for the Americas. “Greatly admired for their rarity, these are gems that are enthusiastically pursued by collectors and connoisseurs.”

Other lots at the December 5 auction will include a 15.01-carat ruby and diamond ring, estimated at $2.5 million to $3.5 million; a cut-cornered rectangular mixed-cut, 5.24-carat, fancy intense orangy-pink, VS2-clarity diamond ring, with a price tag of $1.8 million to $2.2 million; and an oval-shaped, 14.01-carat, D-color, VVS1-clarity diamond ring carrying an estimate of $1.5 million to $2.5 million.

De Beers plánuje pridať do svojej flotily najväčšie diamantové ťažobné plavidlo na svete s nákladom 142 miliónov dolárov.

Loď bude šiestou súčasťou Debmarine Namibia, spoločného podniku 50:50 medzi baníkmi , Namíbijskou republikou, uviedol De Beers. Očakáva sa, že začne fungovať v roku 2021, ale zvýši schopnosť spoločnosti ťažiť diamanty z pobrežia južnej Afriky na pobreží Atlantického oceánu.

"V morských ložiskách v Namíbii existuje veľké množstvo potenciálu a toto nové plavidlo bude podporovať našu stratégiu naďalej rozširovať naše offshore operácie," povedal generálny riaditeľ spoločnosti De Beers Bruce Cleaver.

Začiatkom tohto roka spoločnosť De Beers spustila mv SS Nujoma , najväčšie diamantové vzorkovacie a prieskumné plavidlo na svete. Získanie novej lode pomôže spoločnosti zúročiť prácu tohto plavidla a podporí dlhodobú budúcnosť sektora diamantov v Namíbii, dodal Cleaver.

Spoločnosť Kleven Verft, nórska spoločnosť na stavbu lodí, ktorá postavila Nujomu , postaví aj novú loď a podpísala memorandum o porozumení s De Beers.

Měl jsem krásný řád Francouzské legie, byl to rytíř, klenotnická práce a do každého ramene vsazený dva diamanty, ani to nebylo moc hezké, ale byl to jinak zajímavý kousek. Dnes mám již jen vzpomínku.

Holiday season driving positive sentiment, with strong growth in purchases via mobile devices. Retailers creating selfie events and experiences to lure customers away from laptops and into stores.

Oversizes selling well. Steady demand for fine-quality 6 to 10 ct. Ovals, Pears and Emeralds, with limited supply. US demand supporting market for commercial-quality, medium-priced fancies under 1 ct. Far East demand improving as consumers seek fancy shapes at better prices. Off-make, poorly cut fancies illiquid and hard to sell, even at very deep discounts.

United States: Steady trading with positive momentum for holiday season. Dealers filling local and international orders. Shortage of fine-quality RapSpec A2+ diamonds. Large availability of lower-quality goods that are difficult to move. Retailers capitalizing on jewelry-stacking and -layering fashion trend this season.

Israel: Polished trading stable as dealers fill orders from New York and Hong Kong. Strong online sales through James Allen in November. Good demand for 1 ct., I-K, VS-SI diamonds. Steady demand for unique fancy color diamonds and fancy shapes. New tax law passed by the Knesset calculates diamond trade levy based on profit rather than transaction volume.

Inventory slowly declining as manufacturing remains below capacity and as holiday orders get filled. Rough demand stable as cutters start to prepare for anticipated rise in first-quarter sales.

RAPAPORT... De Beers reported steady demand for rough diamonds at its December sight as sales showed an increase over the equivalent period last year.

The miner sold $450 million worth of rough in its final sales cycle of the year, including last week’s sight in Gaborone and its auctions, it reported Tuesday. Provisional proceeds rose 6.6% compared with actual sales for the same period last year, though they slipped 3.4% from November sales.

“The 10th sales cycle of the year saw the continuation of good demand for De Beers’ rough diamonds as we head towards the end of 2017,” CEO Bruce Cleaver said. “Demand was broadly stable on the levels seen in cycle nine, with sales slightly ahead of the equivalent period in 2016.”

Sightholders did not leave goods on the table, partly because of the seven-week gap until the January sight, as opposed to the usual four-week wait, Dudu Harari of diamond broker Bluedax said in a report on the sight. Rough demand is traditionally strong in January as manufacturers seek to fill retailers’ post-holiday inventory gaps ahead of the Chinese New Year, which this time falls on February 16.

While premiums on the secondary market rose in some categories, dealers are still trading many boxes of De Beers goods at a loss, while manufacturers’ profits are still slim due to relatively high rough prices and weak polished demand, Harari added.

Even so, both De Beers’ and Alrosa’s figures showed an improvement in the rough market compared with the same time in 2016. A year ago, demand for lower-value rough slumped due to the impact of India’s November demonetization policy, which damaged miner’s sales in the final two months of that year. This year, Alrosa’s November sales leapt 36% relative to last year, according to the company.

De Beers sells about 90% of its rough diamonds through long-term contracts at 10 sales per year, called sights. The first sight of 2018 will begin on January 22.
