The collaboration brings together the expertise of mining, rough tendering and trading as well as high-end manufacturing and polished trading. “Meya is confident in the Partnership’s strengths and expertise, as 3rd and 4th generation family businesses within the diamond sector alongside their extensive experience in dealing with exceptional diamonds such as the, 342 carat Queen of Kalahari, 910 carat Lesotho Legend, 439 carat Letseng Icon and the 29 carat Rose of KAO. Both parties are committed and very excited about the endless possibilities that this journey could engender.”, the partners commented in a joint press release.
