Josyfon becomes UK-based stockist

30 september 2019

josyfon_logo.jpegJosyfon, a third-generation diamond wholesaler based in London’s historic Hatton Garden, has become the first UK-based diamond dealer to stock loose polished diamonds bearing De Beers Group Industry Services grading reports. 
Focusing on diamonds that are 0.70ct-2cts, D-J colour and VS-SI clarity, Josyfon will now offer a recognisable and reputable alternative to other grading reports currently available, De Beers Group Press Office reported. 
De Beers Group Industry Services only grades natural and untreated diamonds in its state-of-the-art laboratories in the UK near London, Antwerp and Surat. Grading standards are published and available to download from the De Beers Group Industry Services website at
Jonathan Kendall, President of De Beers Group Industry Services, said: “Although our reports are new to the UK industry, the De Beers Group name is not, and our reports come with over 120 years of diamond knowledge and experience. Introducing grading from a name that the public recognises is an amazing opportunity for retailers to engage with their consumers.”
