Change is the only constant
The world of diamonds is changing rapidly as several unforeseen occurrences are taking place. Pandemic has re-surfaced despite the vaccination drives. The joy and hope expressed at the beginning of this year is slowly dwindling. These are those times which are indeed uncertain and will try each and every individual thoroughly – whether afflicted by the deadly virus or not.

Economies are toppling and business despite the rosy pictures painted in anticipation of a hopeful future aren’t really materialising. Brands are doing whatever they can to stay afloat. Pandora, one of the world's largest jewellery maker has announced recently that it will no longer use mined diamonds — a decision, it said, that stemmed partially from consumer demand. Indian diamond exporters are on tenterhooks as India and the United States are at loggerheads over an ongoing dispute over a digital service tax, some say it is likely —that a wide range of Indian jewelry items will be slapped with a new import duty of as high as 25 per cent.

Despite all uncertainties and unforeseen changes diamantaires believe that diamonds are the world’s most favoured gift when it comes to expression of real emotions towards loved ones.
