Angola Diamond Association with African Diamond Producers Will Increase Diamond Quality

2006: Angola Diamond Association Will Be Helpful In Using Natural Resources.

September 2006

Angola has proposed the establishment of an African Diamonds Producers Association, for the purpose of sharing information and experiences.

The producers will certainly use their combined power to negotiate better prices and increase local polishing factories. We hope that this group will take away the unfortunate (and inaccurate) image that all African diamonds are blood diamonds, and say that, if managed wisely, natural resources can benefit the local populations in impoverished countries.

The association would include diamond producers like Angola, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Lesotho, Namibia, Tog and Zimbabwe. 


For over twenty years we produced
The Diamond Registry Bulletin.
In this section you will find very useful articles and tools on how to purchase a diamond.
