Analysis

The table above shows that the ranking by value of diamond production around the world is quite different from the ranking by carat.

In the number of carats produced (which we reported in DRB, July ‘03, with a breakdown of gem and industrial diamonds), Australia ranks first and Congo, for instance, is number 4. While, in the ranking of value, Botswana is number one, followed by Russia and South Africa.

Canada only produced 3.3 % of value in 2002, this is going to change dramatically when the figures for 2003 will be released.

The total value of $7.6 billion includes both gem and industrial stones. World diamond jewelry sales are about 10 times that amount, which is why De Beers is trying to integrate downstream.
