Diamond Experts67 years of pedigree
Pure Diamonds source diamonds worldwide and works directly with the mining/cutting companies and sources at or below wholesale prices. One of our suppliers is a third generation company with manufacturing (cutting) facilities in South Africa, Russia, New York, Antwerp and for over 67 years has supplied the world’s top jewellers and the diamond trade.
This company buys huge quantities of uncut (rough) diamonds every year direct from the mines and cuts and polishes in house. Our buying power and historical relationship allows us to select and source the best of these fancy colours.
Diamond demand is way ahead of supply. By 2016 the supply demand gap is likely to be 15% and by 2020 this is likely to be 36% and continue to drive upwards”
