"Our international auctions for the sale of large-sized rough diamonds always attract attention of buyers. The auction session in Dubai ended with positive results - both in terms of the number of stones sold and in terms of the number of firms that participated in the event. We see that the ALROSA platform in Dubai continues to evolve and to attract more and more interest", said Evgeny Agureev, Member of the Executive Committee, CEO of ESO ALROSA.
This is the third ALROSA diamond auction in the UAE this year. The previous ones were held in February and April. Also ALROSA plans to organize another one in Dubai in autumn.
