Make Hay While the Sun Shines
Demand for smaller polished diamonds is bleak globally, while the same for bigger size diamonds is on a steady rise. Owing to which prices for smaller size categories have gone down. This might be a good thing because we may witness more consumers walking into the store to buy diamond jewellery.

With surging cases in India, particularly Mumbai, which could go into a lockdown, situation looks uncertain. Keep your digital game on! One thing this pandemic has taught us is to embrace other forms of doing business.

In other news, a 15.81 carat Sakura diamond, the largest of its kind to ever be on sale, will be auctioned Christie's upcoming Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels Live Auction in May. The diamond is expected to garner anywhere between $25-38 million. Lesser than 10% of pink diamonds weigh more than one-fifth of a carte and this pink-purple diamond, that comes in an “unprecedented” size will be the talk of the town for the next few days!
