De Beers Group CEO Al Cook said: “As expected, De Beers’ rough diamond sales in the fourth cycle of the year trended lower, in line with the seasonally slower second quarter and a quieter period of trading in India during the elections. The focus of the global diamond industry now turns towards the JCK jewellery show in Las Vegas at the end of May. Demand trends in the US are expected to be driven by short term macroeconomic issues but supported in coming years by a recovery in engagements as the after-effects of pandemic lockdowns fade.”
