Evgeny Agureev said : "January saw continuing strong demand for diamonds from midstream companies seeking to stock up after a successful holiday season sales across all the key markets. At the same time, sales have been capped by current production levels, similar to the situation seen in the second half of 2021. On the back of the changes in the sales mix and the price index's annual growth the average revenue per carat considerably increased from January 2021, when diamond miners had extensive inventories. Amid limited diamond supply globally, ALROSA continues with its measures to quickly respond to market demand by accelerating pre-sale diamond processing," External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “ALROSA sets great store by the stability of rough diamond supply, satisfying confirmed demand and minimizing speculative sentiments that can undermine the market. We have therefore updated the way in which we interact with clients, placing the focus on creating added value after the sale of the diamonds. Working on this basis with the updated list of ALROSA ALLIANCE members will ensure the stability of supply for both the clients and the company, while also helping to balance supply and demand on the market,” External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “The diamond market has successfully overcome two of the gravest shocks in a row. The local industry crisis in 2019 and the subsequent global coronavirus pandemic have transformed the industry, making it much more transparent and open for discussions. After the transitional period of 2021, the time has come to start a new contract period. On the other hand, the market needs a new model of long-term agreements in rough diamond trade to help withstand external shocks. The key distinction of this new system is its division of contracts and goods depending on the clients’ business activity . We give special priority to creating added value at all stages of a diamond’s journey. The continuous open dialogue we have been having for recent years has allowed us to improve the understanding of our customers’ needs even further. Thanks to this, we are now able to tailor extremely unique specifications for each client, ensuring the most effective buyout. This approach has been approved by the regulatory body, so the January 2022 trading session will follow these new rules,” External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “Demand for jewelry in key markets continues to grow in double digits against the high levels of 2018–2019. Both retailers and cutters expect this upward trend to carry on through the end of the year. Previously adequate supply of polished diamonds was covered from rough diamond inventories accumulated by miners during the downturn period. In the past few months, rough diamonds have been in short supply amid the structural cuts in diamond production (-20% vs the pre-pandemic level). As end consumer demand for natural diamond jewelry remains high, ALROSA aims to gradually restore the supply and demand balance, despite the limited capacities to increase production. At the same time, we are committed to our policy of selling rough diamonds only against actual demand,” External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “Our May sales results demonstrate strong demand coming from Indian midstream. Despite the epidemiological situation in April and early May, which demonstrates substantial improvement since then, cutters and polishers fully adapted and are able to process all available volumes of rough diamonds. End-demand for diamond jewelry remains robust in all key regions. For the first four months of the year jewelry sales exceeded pre-COVID levels of 2019 by 30% in the USA, and by 10% in China,” External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “In April, demand for diamond jewelry in the key markets continued to remain sustainably robust. Rough diamonds’ stocks at the mid-stream remain modest, while the supply of rough diamonds gradually moves to a deficit state as global diamond production capacities structurally reduced.

Evgeny Agureev said : "Diamonds of this level, from which diamonds larger than 100 carats can potentially be created, are extremely rare in nature. Even less often they get to the auction: according to the law, all diamonds extracted in Russia larger than 50 carats are subject to state expertise for redemption to the state fund, but even if it is possible to sell them on the open market, we prefer to do this, having previously cut the diamond into a diamond.

Evgeny Agureev said : "January saw continuing strong demand for diamonds from midstream companies seeking to stock up after a successful holiday season sales across all the key markets. At the same time, sales have been capped by current production levels, similar to the situation seen in the second half of 2021. On the back of the changes in the sales mix and the price index's annual growth the average revenue per carat considerably increased from January 2021, when diamond miners had extensive inventories. Amid limited diamond supply globally, ALROSA continues with its measures to quickly respond to market demand by accelerating pre-sale diamond processing," External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “ALROSA sets great store by the stability of rough diamond supply, satisfying confirmed demand and minimizing speculative sentiments that can undermine the market. We have therefore updated the way in which we interact with clients, placing the focus on creating added value after the sale of the diamonds. Working on this basis with the updated list of ALROSA ALLIANCE members will ensure the stability of supply for both the clients and the company, while also helping to balance supply and demand on the market,” External link

Evgeny Agureev said : “The diamond market has successfully overcome two of the gravest shocks in a row.

After the transitional period of 2021, the time has come to start a new contract period. On the other hand, the market needs a new model of long-term agreements in rough diamond trade to help withstand external shocks. The key distinction of this new system is its division of contracts and goods depending on the clients’ business activity . We give special priority to creating added value at all stages of a diamond’s journey. The continuous open dialogue we have been having for recent years has allowed us to improve the understanding of our customers’ needs even further. Thanks to this, we are now able to tailor extremely unique specifications for each client, ensuring the most effective buyout.

Evgeny Agureev said : “Demand for jewelry in key markets continues to grow in double digits against the high levels of 2018–2019. Both retailers and cutters expect this upward trend to carry on through the end of the year. Previously adequate supply of polished diamonds was covered from rough diamond inventories accumulated by miners during the downturn period. In the past few months, rough diamonds have been in short supply amid the structural cuts in diamond production (-20% vs the pre-pandemic level). As end consumer demand for natural diamond jewelry remains high, ALROSA aims to gradually restore the supply and demand balance, despite the limited capacities to increase production. At the same time, we are committed to our policy of selling rough diamonds only against actual demand,” External link
