China’s Growing Diamond Market

Posted on October 1st, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

China is second in the diamond market to the United States, however it has more than tripled to $22.8 billion over the last five years. The reason? 13 million women get married in the country each year, and they are demanding more diamonds.

Gold used to be the jewelry go-to for brides-to-be, but modern consumers have had more exposure to Western culture than their parents, watching and reading television and film characters receive a proposal with a diamond ring.

The growing diamond industry in China is attracting jewelers, miners and dealers from around the world. Sotheby’s is set to offer a huge white diamond at auction in Hong Kong, which is expected to reach $28 milliong, making it the most expensive white diamond ever sold.

Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia, Patti Wong, says since 2006 there has been a close to 200 percent increase of Asian buyers purchasing jewelry worldwide. The focus? Diamonds, of course.

Other jewelry makers, such as De Beers and Tiffany & Co., have also seen and expect to keep seeing an increase in diamond buying in China. Women will demand a diamond and tell their friends, who will also want a diamond when the time comes.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
