U.S. Diamond Import Analysis

The first seven months of 2000 showed phenomenal increases in sales of polished diamonds over .50 carat. While in the first six months of 1999, the United States imported about $2.8 billion of these stones, that figure jumped to $4.8 billion in the first seven months of this year.

Meanwhile rough diamond imports, while increasing in 2000, will fall under $1 billion versus an anticipated $7 to $8 billion in polished stone imports over .50 carats.

The difference can be traced to both open goods and conflict goods not reaching the U.S., and a discrepancy in the number of U.S. sightholders. By limiting the number, De Beers is limiting the amount of U.S.-polished goods.

The soaring increase in polished imports is also traced to predictable sights that have lacked the larger, in-demand stones, according to Jeff Fischer, president of the Diamond Manufacturer’s Association. De Beers says they do not have a sufficient supply of these for U.S. sightholders.
