Sluggish polished trading, with buyers struggling to find the right goods due to scarcity of popular categories. Manufacturers cautiously raising production levels. Factories still operating below capacity with large inventories of lower-quality diamonds that are difficult to sell at a profit. 0.30 to 0.70 ct., G-J, SI-I1 moving well. Stars and melee stable in SI and lower piqué clarities. Jewelry retail sales relatively slow given the ongoing wedding season.
