Is De Beers mulling major changes to its Sightholder system? According to a report in Bloomberg, quoted by IDEX Online, the diamond miner may be reducing the number of Sightholders – companies authorized bulk purchasers of rough diamonds from the company – in order to strengthen the clients who do survive the shake up.
