The diamond industry continues to operate with caution, but there was improvement in trading confidence out of India and Israel in February. Still, the next few months will require  navigating those persistent challenges that have impacted the trade since third-quarter 2011. Read the latest Rapaport Research report "Showing Restraint."

Polished diamond prices were mixed during February with stones above 1 carat declining,  however, year on year prices for polished diamonds as measured by the RapNet Diamond Index (RAPI) were higher for 1-carat, 0.50-carat and 3-carat. Only 0.30-carat diamonds were lower compared with February 2011.

Mar 8, 2012 10:45AM    By KAMLESH SHAH
DUE TO ZIMBABWE GOODS + MORE BROWN GOODS POLISHED IN MARKET MANUFACTURERS ARE OFFERING MORE DISCOUNT SO CERTIFIED POLISHED GRAPH WILL GO DOWN ONLY MAINLAND CHINESE WERE MAJOR BUYERS IN HK FEB SHOW - IF YOU DEDUCT MAINLAND CHINESE FROM SHOW -- THERE WERE VERY FEW VISITORS IN SHOW & FROM DEC 15 TILL FEB15 THEY HAVENT BOUGHT ENOUGH GOODS FROM MARKET DUE TO SHORT PERIOD BETWEEN CHRISTMAS & CHINESE NEW YEAR!! SO WHAT THEY BOUGHT FROM HK FEB SHOW ACTUALLY WAS JUST TOTAL OF TWO MONTHS JAN & FEB!!! AS PER MY VIEW PRICES WILL REMAIN HIGH ONLY FOR VERY SHORT PERIOD FOR 20-25 DAYS AND AGAIN HAVE TO COME DOWN DUE TO LESS DEMAND IN MARKET COMPARE TO FEBRUARY!!
