Sanctions are on payment methods and not on diamonds. See Rapaport’s resource page for more information. Surging commodity prices and inflation are rocking markets. Gold breaks $2,000/ounce. Polished prices stabilizing as consumers battle higher gas and food costs. Rough market cooling as March auction prices decline amid uncertainty.
