IDE President Yoram Dvash congratulated the new members and spoke about the robustness of the diamond industry: “The IDE is getting stronger; in 2016, 112 new members were accepted. We were visited today by the directors of Diamdel International, and we gave them a tour of the new Trading center as well as the new Synova room. They were impressed and congratulated us on the new Trading Center, which we will inaugurate at the upcoming International Diamond Week in February. We keep sowing the seeds for future profits and progress”.

“In all my meetings with heads of organizations, we talk about increasing the advertising budget and keeping prices stable”, Dvash added, “The International Diamond Week (IDWI) will open on February 13, and 330 international buyers have already registered. I wish luck to all the new bourse members. You are entering a distinguished body and a robust industry. It is my honor to welcome you to the bourse today. The Israeli diamond industry is among the leading industries of its kind in the world, and our bourse, in terms of number of members, is the largest. In purchases and sales, imports and exports, we are second or third in the world. There’s tradition, capital, knowledge, and I have no doubt we can reach new heights. I want to thank Committee Head for New Members Herzl Sitton and VP of Members Osnat Amiel”.

The bourse is the natural working environment for every diamantaire, and it encompasses all the relevant bodies of the industry. Everyone works towards making the Israeli bourse a diamond hub. Applying for membership is a long process, and it’s all about quality".
