ALROSA sold large diamonds of special sizes (more than 10.8 carats) at an international auction in Dubai. 126 gems with a total weight of 2,090 carats were sold, including one particularly large stone weighing 63.8 carats mined at the deposits of Almazy Anabara JSC. The total revenue at the auction amounted to $ 7.6 million.
More than 100 firms representing the world's largest diamond trading centers took part in the auction - the United Arab Emirates, India, Belgium, Russia, Israel, Hong Kong and the United States.
“Our international auctions for the sale of large-sized rough diamonds always arouse the particular interest of buyers. The auction in the United Arab Emirates ended with good results both in terms of the number of stones sold and in terms of the number of firms that participated in the event. We see that the ALROSA platform in Dubai continues to evolve and attract more and more interest,” commented Evgeny Agureev, member of the board, director of the ALROSA United Sales Organization.
This is the third ALROSA diamond auction in the UAE this year - the previous ones were held in February and April. By the end of the year, ALROSA plans to organize another auction for the sale of diamonds of special sizes in Dubai. The event will take place in the fall.
