Who buys uncut diamonds?

The sale of unprocessed natural diamonds not set into jewelry is carried out only between legal organizations. In addition to those who want to invest capital, jewelers are interested in purchasing precious stones, as well as people who want to receive a unique piece of jewelry to order. A natural stone must have a certificate confirming its properties – authenticity, weight, color, purity. The price of a diamond per 1 carat will depend on these indicators. A specimen that is flawless in all respects is valued more expensive than a specimen with defects—turbidity, inclusions, or the color of a diamond. To understand the current price in rubles today, you need to take into account many factors, including the exchange rate against the dollar. The price of diamonds is influenced by weekly market analysis and Rapaport’s price list. The cost of one carat, gram, of a good uncut diamond can cost from 600000 to 1500000 rubles. A natural stone weighing 1 carat of color 1 and purity 1 is considered rare, and the coefficient of the uniqueness of the product is already included in the calculation of the cost.

This follows from data from the Rapaport pricing agency, which Vedomosti reviewed. According to the company, at the beginning of July, the RapNet Diamond Index (RAPI) for such diamonds was 6,9, which is 8,4% less than at the beginning of January, and 23,9% less than the figure for the beginning of July 2022. Prices for 3-carat diamonds are at the 2021 level – 23,6. Since the beginning of the year, the index has decreased by 4,9%, since the beginning of July 2022 – by 15,8%. The price index for smaller diamonds – 0,5 carats – has fallen to at least 2018 levels (latest available data). At the beginning of July it was 2,4 (-10,2% compared to the level at the beginning of the year, -23% compared to the level at the beginning of July 2022). And diamonds weighing 0,3 carats rose in price in January–May 2023 after reaching multi-year lows at the end of last year, but began to decline again in June. Now the price index for them is 1,6, which is 6% higher than at the beginning of the year, but 2,3% lower than at the beginning of July 2022. The IDEX Diamond Price Index is at its lowest since July 2020 at 117,8. Diamond prices on the global market have been falling since the spring of 2022, when IDEX reached an all-time high of 158,4. The decline is due to weak demand for precious stones and jewelry, particularly in the US market. The United States is the world’s largest consumer of diamond jewelry; the country, according to experts, accounts for 40–45% of global demand. Diamond prices, according to Boris Krasnozhenov, head of the securities markets analytics department at Alfa Bank, have decreased by 2023–7% since the beginning of 10, but remain above the levels of 2021. However, he notes that, according to Indian statistics, Diamond prices are approximately 2018% higher than 60 levels, so the current decline is not critical for mining companies. According to Dmitry Kazakov, senior analyst at BCS World of Investments, the Zimnisky Global Rough Diamond Price Index has decreased by 6,3% since the beginning of the year and by 12,5% ​​over the past 12 months. Simultaneously with the fall in diamond prices, the cost of diamonds also decreases. According to Rapaport, South African De Beers in early July lowered prices for diamonds larger than 0,75 carats by 5-15%. According to Renaissance Capital, the drop in diamond prices since the beginning of the year corresponds to the dynamics of the cost of polished diamonds. Investment company analysts note that given the characteristics of demand for jewelry (the peak occurs at the end of the year, and they are bought in Western countries, primarily in the USA), uncertainty in the market may persist in the coming months. According to the Kimberley Process (an organization of diamond-producing and importing countries to control the diamond market), global diamond production in 2022 decreased by 0,6% to 118 million carats. Russia increased production by 7% to 41,9 million carats, while exports from the country fell by 24% to 36,7 million carats. Global diamond exports (including inventories being sold) decreased by 21% to 331,5 million carats. In Russia, more than 90% of diamond production comes from Alrosa. The company produced 2021 million carats in 32,4; sales, taking into account accumulated reserves, amounted to 45,5 million carats. The company has not yet published data for 2022. According to Alrosa, its share in global production is about 30%. According to the consulting company Bain & Company, in 2021, Alrosa’s share of the global market was 28%, the same as De Beers. At the same time, Alrosa sells most of its diamonds in rough form: in 2021, revenue from the sale of polished diamonds amounted to only 5%, or $192 million, with total revenue of $4,2 billion. About 90% of diamonds are cut in India. An Alrosa representative told Vedomosti that rough and polished prices are now returning to “average normal values ​​after a post-pandemic surge in prices of 35-40% of pre-pandemic levels.”

Large banks are preparing to sell diamonds without VAT

Investment The Russian company notes an increase in demand for diamonds in emerging markets and “steady demand for diamond products, reflected in the statistics of the largest retailers.” At the same time, there is a growing shortage of diamond supply on the world market, Alrosa notes. “The drop in supply to pre-pandemic levels amounted to at least 30 million carats, or 25% of global production,” the source noted. He added that the rough and polished diamond market has always been cyclical both in terms of demand and prices. “We take an optimistic view of the industry’s prospects and recommend that investors enter diamond assets at current price levels,” noted the Alrosa representative. Krasnozhenov reminds that in 2021–2022. There was a significant increase in demand for diamond jewelry, it reached a historical record of $84–85 billion per year. At the beginning of the last decade, demand for diamond jewelry was about $60 billion a year. Now, according to the expert, there is a “normalization of the price level for diamonds.” Finam Financial Group analyst Alexey Kalachev explains the fall in diamond prices with a more pragmatic consumer approach amid fears of a recession with a focus on savings, rising returns on more liquid investment instruments, lower production costs and an increased supply of synthetic stones. He also noted the weak growth rate of demand for polished diamonds in China. Kalachev adds that India reduced diamond imports in May by 18% year-on-year. Kazakov attributes the fall in diamond prices primarily to macroeconomic uncertainty and consumer caution in the United States. In the face of falling prices, diamond producers are seeking to adjust sales volumes in order to support prices by reducing volumes, Kazakov notes. Against the backdrop of a structural supply shortage, mining companies understand that the focus in the sales strategy should not be on sales volumes, but on price, explains Krasnozhenov. According to Kazakov, diamond prices in the second half of the year will be lower than in the first, by an average of 6,5%, and by the end of the year they will decrease by 10% by 2022. At the same time, Krasnozhenov expects a reversal in the dynamics of demand for diamonds from September against the background of seasonal growth in demand and minimization of inventory levels in the cutting segment. He adds that diamond reserves at the world’s largest projects are being depleted, and as a result, production could fall to 90 million carats by 2030. Diamond prices, given the current balance of supply and demand, could reach $200–230 per carat, which indicates significant potential shares of Alrosa, the expert believes. Alrosa shares during trading on July 21 increased by 2,2% to 808 rubles. for paper. Since the beginning of the year, the securities have risen in price by 16,9%. The company’s securities, according to Krasnozhenov, are also supported by the weakening of the ruble and market expectations for the company’s dividends. Kazakov explains that if average diamond prices fall by 2023% in 10, the ruble may depreciate against the dollar by 15% to 79 rubles/$ on average for the year. Alrosa’s net profit, according to Kazakov’s forecast, may fall by 2023% in 20. In 2021, Alrosa’s profit under IFRS increased 2,8 times to 91,3 billion rubles, the company did not publish financial results under IFRS for 2022, profit under RAS in 2022 amounted to 82,9 billion rubles.
