ALROSA to auction 10+ct polished and rough diamonds during IDWI

30 december 2016
ALROSA will hold a tender of both polished and rough diamonds during Israel’s sixth International Diamond Week (IDWI), February 13-16, 2017 at the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE).
The auction will offer 108 boxes of rough diamonds of 11 to 199 carats, and several unique white and fancy color polished diamonds, weighing from 10 to 80 ct, including five that were cut from one huge rough stone, says a 'Release' from IDE.
The centerpiece of the ALROSA auction is the 80.59 ct round “Star of Viluysk”, which will be exhibited on the IDE trading floor during IDWI along with the company’s other special stones.
ALROSA's President Andrey Zharkov will be guest of honor at IDWI. His visit is timed to coincide with the opening of IDE International Tender Center, which will house tenders of rough and polished diamonds by major rough producers and diamond traders.
ALROSA, the world’s largest producer of rough diamonds in terms of carats, has held regular tenders of polished and rough diamonds at the Israeli bourse for several years.
Recently ALROSA and IDE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at increasing cooperation between the two organizations in a variety of areas. During Zharkov’s stay he and his team will meet with the leaders of IDE to discuss specific terms of the MOU, including increased rough supply.
