Quarterly Commodity Insights Bulletin: Diamond Q3-2012 

This Quarterly Commodity Insights Bulletin looks at how Diamond has performed during the third quarter of 2012.

Macroeconomic uncertainties such as the Eurozone crisis and lower demand from India have exerted downward pressure on diamond prices in recent months.


The 2012 outlook for rough diamond prices appears to be dim and this trend is likely to remain the same until 2014, when constrained supply, stable US demand and increased demand from emerging economies is expected to pull rough diamond prices up.
