According to Johan Dippenaar, the chief executive officer of Johannesburg-based Petra Diamonds, the slump for gems smaller than three grains is partly due to stockpiling. Furthermore, consultant Gemdax shared that manufacturers are nowadays more interested in bigger and higher quality diamonds as those are sold faster. While furthermore there has been a slip of 18% last year due to the slowing down of demand by Chinese and a slow down at industry-wide credit crunch cut purchases. Due to all these negative influences on the diamond sale De Beers and Alrosa were prompted to hold back supplies in order to support the diamond prices.

This action created a recovery in the diamond industry, yet the recovery did not stretch over all the diamond types. As Bloomberg describes “among small diamonds, those classified as fine quality have this year outperformed so-called commercial stones, the poorer clarity varieties often off-white or brown in color.”
