In October, demand for small-size inexpensive rough diamonds continued to remain weak. Seasonal slowdown on the threshold of Diwali, the main Indian holiday, was exacerbated by weakening Rupee/USD FX rate, a number of minor bankruptcies in India and tighter credit conditions for the cutting and polishing sector in this country, says ALROSA

In October, ALROSA Group sold $242.8 million worth of rough and polished diamonds (-28% YoY).Rough diamond sales by value amounted to $233.9 million, polished diamond sales - $8.9 million.

"In October, demand for small-size inexpensive rough diamonds continued to remain weak. Seasonal slowdown on the threshold of Diwali, the main Indian holiday, was exacerbated by weakening Rupee/USD FX rate, a number of minor bankruptcies in India and tighter credit conditions for the cutting and polishing sector in this country, says ALROSA Deputy CEO Yury Okoemov. - We expect the situation to stabilize through December this year to the first quarter next year, rough diamond sales are expected to be in the range of 37-38 million carats. While in value terms, our 2018 sales should be higher compared to the last year results".
