Dvash, who served as a commander in the IDF, is a first generation diamantaire. He established his own diamond manufacturing and trading business, Y. Dvash Diamonds Ltd., in 1991.
Roles in the Diamond Industry

Dvash is the driving force behind the establishment and further development and expansion of the IDE’s Centre for Manufacturing and Innovation. The facility was established to guarantee that diamond cutting and manufacturing will not only remain in Israel, but will also significantly increase the diversity and growth of the Israeli diamond sector.
Yoram also initiated the “10 ct’ + development section” in the technological service area in the bourse trading hall to ensure that these stones will be manufactured in Israel rather than abroad.
In 2016, Dvash was elected Vice President of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB).
