ALROSA offers its own large-size polished diamonds

02 february 2009

“Before the crisis came we launched a new brand and are going now to develop it, although it is not the best time,” ALROSA’s top executive Sergey Vybornov said in his interview to Vedomosty. “The brand is in a specific niche of polished diamonds made of high-quality rough diamonds bearing appropriate color features. The stones are designated not only for corporative, but also for major private clients, who will be able to buy polished diamonds for investment purposes,” Sergey Vybornov explained.

According to him, there are “very expensive polished diamonds” ready to be sold. Thus, the cost of a pilot project, “very small in size, amounts to $10-15 million.” “Rough diamonds, as we have said, have never been considered as an investment vehicle. We believe that it is high time to promote this quality of polished diamonds,” Sergey Vybornov stressed. “This is really a brand since all the polished diamonds will bear a hologram image saying it is ALROSA. People will be able to buy them by one or by two stones. This subject is new for us and not related to serial production,” ALROSA’s President said.
