The Diamond Industry in 2020 - Where Does It Go from Here
For the majority of the twentieth century, the diamond industry and its prices were completely controlled by a single company, known as De Beers. Nowadays, diamond prices are completely driven through supply and demand. However, last year was not a good year for the diamond industry, and according to Liberum Capital Markets, the present difficulties will not be ending anytime soon.
Rough diamonds were oversupplied, there was a surplus of polished stone stocks, and the price of diamonds is falling, which has piled a huge amount of pressure on the organizations that have to dig the diamonds up and the businesses that focus on cutting, polishing and trading them.

If industry players take heed of the above recommendations, they’ll be in a strong market position going forward.
Pink/Colored Diamonds 2020
2019 presented the diamond industry with many challenges. Fortunately, the outlook for the future is more promising. Colored and pink diamonds are likely to retain and increase in value due to the closure of Rio Tinto’s profuse Argyle mine. This mine found in Australia is not the world’s only pink diamond source, but it is definitely the most significant. The mine closure, alongside other highly productive mines, will open doors for many smaller companies found in this sector.
Fluorescent Diamonds 2020
As the pink diamond supply slows down, fluorescent diamonds are likely to make a statement. These diamonds glow when placed under UV light and are usually mined in colder countries. They have been created to target younger women due to their party appeal. Many companies exist to resell diamonds and these companies will benefit massively if the popularity of colored and fluorescent diamonds starts to increase because it attracts such a varied market. Prices are already increasing due to mine closures, so many people will be looking for good deals on these diamonds, especially if they become popular.
North Arrow 2020

Technological Advances 2020
Technology is constantly changing and improving and these technological advances will most likely be applied to the diamond industry in 2020. Technological integration and efficiency will allow companies to adapt better to the market conditions. The industry will most likely benefit from collaborative synergies, but it will take a while for the industry to become fully modernized. For example, forming branded marketing prospects with retailers and managing the purchases of rough diamonds based on inventory monitoring and retail activity.
Over the last couple of years, the diamond industry has been through a difficult time and has faced many difficulties. However, the future of this industry is starting to look a lot brighter.
