There are many places you can buy and sell diamonds. For consumers, the
best place to buy diamonds is at the nearby jeweler. For the diamond trade, wholesalers
are located in diamond bourses and centers all over the world. Some of them are located at places
where there is or was diamond polishing nearby.
In order to save time for our diamond buyers, we decided upon a number of preset diamond
centers. These diamond centers give better flexibility to say where your diamond can be picked
up without extra charge. So each diamond will have one physical location, and a number of
optional (extra) delivery locations, which have to be in one of the defined diamond districts.

The diamond trade has always been a very global trade. Due to geographical and economical
factors the demand for diamonds is very geo-seasonal. More diamonds are sold in certain
seasons, but each part of the world has its own seasons.
Most diamonds are not sold in the vicinity of where they are mined. The polishing centers
today are mostly in India and China due to the availability of a suitable local work force. This makes the
diamond trade truly global and as a diamond dealer it is very important to know where to
find the best merchandise for the best price at which time.
Before you import or export diamonds, make sure to update yourself about the different
taxes and regulations involved.
