“In February, the core diamond markets were quite strong,” commented ALROSA Deputy CEO Yury Okoemov. “The diamond cutting sector continues replenishing stock. Demand for diamond products was also backed up by good jewellery sales in China on the eve of the Chinese New Year. Prices for diamonds in most size categories grew in January-February.”
