Notes to this table are shown at the bottom of this page.

Bruce Cleaver, CEO, De Beers Group, said: "While the second quarter of the year is traditionally a seasonally slower period, we continued to see good rough diamond demand in the third sales cycle of 2018 as diamond businesses have focused on restocking following healthy consumer demand for diamond jewellery in the U.S. and China."
