Polished trading slow due to lack of Asian buyers and reduced liquidity. US market stable, but buyers seeking discounts. Diamonds with lower color and clarity moving better than higher-end items. Manufacturers maintaining low production since polished demand is down. Diamantaires with Hong Kong offices operating with reduced teams.
