What shape diamonds do you want (or will you wait to see what you buy to decide) and what kind of cut quality are you looking for? Do you have a lot of experience in this area and know what you are buying?

Hi James

A word of caution.

If you are not a highly experienced rough diamond sorter or a member of the rough “pipeline”, Then the chances are good you will get badly burned on your African Adventure.

Dealing in rough is a highly complex affair and not that profitable either, 99.9% of all untrained people that try it loose money.

James you also need to know that you cannot import into the USA or any other participating country, rough diamonds that are not registered and are without the warranties contemplated in terms of the Kimberly Process.
