This gave the company's long-term customers an opportunity to replenish their stocks selectively. Having reviewed the digital copies of diamonds, the clients selected and purchased the stones matching their preferences.
The second round of digital tender starts on June 3. It will be open not only for long-term clients, but also to other company’s customers. ALROSA will tender over 700 rough diamonds from 5-10 carats batches.
