The first rough diamond viewing, conducted by Rio Tinto at the India Diamond Trading Centre in Mumbai’s Bharat Diamond Bourse, has been successfully completed. A selection of Argyle and Diavik rough diamonds were viewed in Mumbai from 23 November to 25 November, prior to returning to Antwerp for auction. 

 This step is very significant as these viewings, the first to be held at the India Diamond Trading Centre, provided an improved level of access and efficiency for local companies and were very well attended by India- based traders and manufacturers. 

As Patrick Coppens, General Manager of sales for Rio Tinto’s diamonds business, says, “We are delighted to be the first producer to use the state-of-the-art India Diamond Trading Centre facility for diamond viewings and congratulate the Bharat Diamond Bourse and Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council on setting up a solid infrastructure and processes to make this a success. Our presence at the India Diamond Trading Centre in Mumbai underscores our mine to market approach and commitment to staying close to our customers for all our sales channels.”
