ROUGH DIAMOND SALES

Cycle 10 2016

$418 million (PROVISIONAL)

Bruce Cleaver, CEO, De Beers Group, said: ”While the trade in lower value rough diamonds is currently experiencing a slow-down as a result of the demonetisation programme in India, demand across the rest of the product mix continued to be healthy and overall sales remained in line with seasonal expectations.”
