For six months of 2021, total rough and polished diamond sales accounted for $2,336 million, including $2,229 million of rough diamond sales and $106 million of polished.
“Demand for rough diamonds remains high. Diamond jewelry enjoy strong demand across all the key markets while rough diamond stocks at the Indian mid-stream segment are kept low. At the same time, miners’ rough stocks hit a rock bottom levels as supply structurally dropped at a number of assets. Like for like price index for rough diamonds has significantly recovered year-to-date to pre-COVID level. We see limited risk of any meaningful supply response from the miners’ side. Thus, the rough market enters a long period of supply deficit. ALROSA does its best to ensure the sustainability of the whole diamond value chain. We maintain a balanced approach to prices and volumes, supporting the long-term stability of the market,” – said Evgeny Agureev, Deputy CEO of ALROSA.
