On Sights 5, 6, 7 and 8, De Beers had “averaged sales of just under $500 million,” according to the report. Bruce Cleaver, CEO of De Beers, said: “As the diamond sector prepares for the key holiday season and US consumer demand for diamond jewellery continues to perform strongly, we saw further robust demand for rough diamonds in the eighth sales cycle of the year ahead of the Diwali holiday when demand for rough diamonds is likely to be affected by the closure of polishing factories in India.”
