Alrosa, NCDIA to Host Colored-Diamond Event

September 6, 2018  |  Rapaport News

RAPAPORT… Alrosa and the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) Asia will
host a seminar on colored diamonds at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.

The session, named “How the World of Natural Colour Diamonds
Continues to Evolve,” will cover Alrosa’s polished-diamond division, and the
miner’s increased focus on colored-diamond manufacturing.

Representatives from Alrosa’s polished branch will speak at the event, including
general manager Pavel Vinikhin and deputy director for sales Evgeny Tsybukov. They will
join Ren Lu, a professor at China University of Geosciences’ Gemmological Institute and a former senior scientist at the Gemological Institute of
America. Rapaport Senior Analyst Avi Krawitz will
moderate the panel.

Alrosa will also auction a collection of colored diamonds at
the fair, it said earlier this week. The “True Colour” collection includes an
11-carat purple-pink stone, as well as an orangey-yellow diamond weighing more than 15 carats.
