International Rough Diamond Week opened at the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) with a slow start April 12, which local diamantaires attributed to the show’s timing at the end of Passover as well as to poor sentiment in the global rough diamond market. However, activity did seem to pick up a little on Monday. “My rooms are filled with buyers, but there is definitely less buzz than last year,” said one representative of a major mining company.
