ALROSA, the world leader in diamond mining, and GfK research company conducted an extensive research of diamond consumers in the U.S. and China. Among other things, it demonstrates that consumers of both countries are interested in buying jewelry with diamonds, they are planning to buy it in the future, and that they purchase for themselves much more often than as a gift.

Today, the USA is the world's largest consumer market of diamond jewellery, and China is the most rapidly growing market.

The research was conducted in the autumn 2017. More than 4 thousand people from the USA and China - men and women aged 25 to 55 years, with average or above average income who bought or received diamond jewellery as a gift within the last 12 months were questioned for the research.

Following traditions

First of all, the results of the research confirm that consumers continue to show great interest in diamond jewelry. From the total number of interviewed people, 86 per cent of Chinese respondents and 59 per cent of respondents in the USA plan to buy at least one piece of diamond jewellery next year.

According to the research, diamond jewelry buyers are not only loyal consumers thinking a diamond is a good acquisition for themselves, but they are also ready to share this opinion with their friends. According to the research, about 34 per cent of respondents in China and 37 per cent of those interviewed in the USA say that if their friends sought their advice on a present to a loved one, they would recommend diamond jewellery as a gift.

Shopping for yourself and tradition of giving gifts

On the average, 44 per cent of Chinese consumers and 38 per cent of US consumers bought one piece of diamond jewelry last year. 34 per cent of respondents from China and 30 per cent of respondents from the USA make two purchases a year. Every seventh consumer in China and almost every fifth consumer in the USA buy three pieces of jewellery a year.

Almost 73 per cent of respondents in China and 71 per cent in the USA replied that over the last year they bought diamond jewellery for themselves. In less than 30 per cent of the cases in both markets, diamond jewelry was purchased as a gift.

Most often, it was a gift for a husband or wife - in about 60 per cent of the cases in all the markets under study. In the USA, jewellery gifts were given to parents (14 per cent) and friends (12 per cent) more often than in China.

 

Most often, gifts with diamonds are given to people aged 26 to 45 years - they account for 71 per cent of gifts in China and 57 per cent in the USA. In China, less than in the USA, gifts are made to people over 46 years old - they account for just 16 per cent of gifts (in the USA - 25 per cent). In the USA, more often than in China, diamonds are given to teenagers - the share of gifts to children aged 11 to 17 years is 4 per cent, while it was only 1 per cent in China.

Diamonds are given to women more often than to men - accounting for approximately 94 per cent of the cases in China and 87 per cent in the USA.
