Indian Diamond Cutters Turn Jewelry Makers

24 august 2012

Diamond cutters and polishers in the largest diamond center in the world in India are responding to lost income by adding jewelry manufacturing units to their business operations, the Times of India reported cited by
Some small- and medium-scale diamond cutting and polishing firms in Surat are diverting considerable amounts of the polished diamonds that they produce to in-house factories for the purpose of producing diamond jewelry like rings, pendants and diamond-embedded wristwatches, according to the Times of India.
In recent months, polished diamonds have not been able to fetch as high as price as they have in the past, due to decreased demand. As a result, it has made economic sense for Indian diamond cutters to adjust their business plans and include beneficiation activities in their operations.
By cutting, polishing and producing jewelry in-house, these Indian firms are finding that they have developed a competitive advantage which allows them to market jewelry at a lower price, since they themselves do not have to pay any mark-up on the polished diamonds.
