The Diamond Trading Company's November sight, No. 9 for the year, ended with an estimated value of $325 million. Participants observed higher prices and added that they were concerned that artificial forces were behind the hike. The DTC's sight was on par with November 2008 in value and was in line with De Beers pledge that the final two sites of this year would be small. Rapaport's Avi Krawitz reports on the details. Also look for the 2010 DTC sight date calendar in this broadcast.
