Tacy Diamond Industry Consultants: 19.7 CARAT DIAMOND RECOVERED IN 230 CARAT PARCEL AT STAR

Diamonds in the news: 19.7 CARAT DIAMOND RECOVERED IN 230 CARAT PARCEL AT STAR.

Excerpt:

The third set of diamond recoveries from Canada's Shore Gold Inc.'s Star Kimberlite includes the largest diamond yet discovered in Saskatchewan. A total of 1,459 commercially sized diamonds, collectively weighing 227.6 carats, has been recovered from the treatment of 1,572.6 dry tons of kimberlite. Thirty-three diamonds greater than one carat have been recovered and the largest stones include a white 19.71 carat diamond, a white 7.48 carat diamond and an off-white 5.61 carat diamond. The diamond parcel includes 25 yellow, 10 pink and 7 amber stones.
In addition, 180 non-commercially sized diamonds, weighing a total of 3.1 carats, were recovered. The color of over 80 percent of these diamonds has been classified as white, with a further 13 percent classified as off-white. We are most encouraged that the kimberlite grade and stone size continue to improve and that our recent kimberlite volume calculations have shown that the higher grade Early Joli Fou kimberlite accounts for approximately 80 percent of Star, says
George Read, Senior Vice President Exploration at Shore Gold.

Manilla Bulletin Online: Diamonds are for everyone

Diamonds in the news: Diamonds are for everyone.

Excerpt:

London's streets are no longer paved with gold, they're paved with diamonds. Fuelled in part by style icons like footballer David Beckham or hip-hopper Missy Elliot, as likely to wear sparklers with sports gear and jeans as they are at awards ceremonies, the increasing popularity of diamonds has turned them from a nice-to-have into a must-have.


Over the last year or two, London’s retail jewellery market has come to reflect this trend — notably with the arrival of new diamond specialists like Wint and Kidd and DeBeers.
Both on and off Old Bond Street — London’s haute couture and fine gem quarter — forwardthinking jewellery shops have eliminated the daunting bank-vault doors and mannered velvet-pillow presentation that has long characterised jewellery shopping.
Even established rocks-on-the-block Asprey and Garrard has repositioned as two distinct “luxury lifestyle” destinations — injecting some much-needed “bling” into the otherwise staid niche it shares with traditional neighbors like Tiffany’s, Bulgari and Cartier.

MineWeb: Blina IPO highlights Aussie diamond revival

Diamonds in the news: Blina IPO highlights Aussie diamond revival.

Excerpt:

The search for diamonds in Australia has broken a few hearts over the past three decades, yet the diamond sector here is once again attracting some avid investor interest.
Aside from a couple of exceptions, diamond hopefuls in Australia have generally only discovered the last of the five important “Cs” – not carats, cut, clarity or colour, just the cash that’s been blown.
Many a big and small name has come up empty-handed in Australia over that period such as Stockdale Prospecting, Joseph Gutnick’s stable of juniors and a host of other pretenders. But buoyed by a thriving world rough diamond market, there are distinct signs that another wave of diamond equities and diamond exploration optimism has swept this country.
The latest to strike while the iron’s hot is emerging Western Australian diamond miner – and the only company producing diamonds in Australia at the moment apart from Rio Tinto – Kimberley Diamond Company [ASX:KIM], who listed on the ASX in 1994 (around the time of the last Aussie diamond revival) and had a few lean years itself before acquiring the Ellendale diamond project from Rio for A$23 million three years ago.

The Seattle Times: Blue Nile stock trips on analysts' expectations

Diamonds in the news: Blue Nile stock trips on analysts' expectations

Excerpt:

If Wall Street were to hand Blue Nile a theme song, it would have to be "Getting to Know You" from "The King and I."
The Seattle online retailer yesterday beat analysts' earnings estimates by 2 cents, reporting a second-quarter profit of $1.9 million, or 11 cents a share, in its first quarterly financial report as a public company.
While sales rose 29 percent to $35 million, that number narrowly missed analysts' consensus estimates of $35.3 million.
Add to that a full-year profit forecast that fell short of expectations, and Blue Nile's shares fell a dizzying $6.04, or 18.1 percent, to close at $27.25.

All Africa: Debeers Doubts Leviev's Proposal

Diamond Mining in the news: Debeers Doubts Leviev's Proposal.

Excerpt:

THE Managing Director of the DeBeers Group, Gary Ralfe has refuted claims that Lev Leviev, the owner of Lev Leviev Group is likely to set up a diamond cutting and polishing factory in Botswana.
On Tuesday during the first anniversary celebrations of Diarough ownership of Teemane Manufacturing Company in Serowe, the Minister for Minerals, Energy and Water Resources, Boometswe Mokgothu confirmed that his ministry is in discussions with various companies who are interested in setting up diamond manufacturing operations in Botswana.
"We are continuously engaged in discussions with various people who have interest, means, experience, technology and know-how, with a view to setting up more diamond manufacturing operations in Botswana," he said.
Mokgothu was last week quoted as saying: "The Israeli tycoon is coming with what Botswana has been looking for."
The minister is understood to have said that the government does guarantee approval of Leviev's proposal.
However, the De Beers Group MD denied that the minister's speech on consultations was in reference to Leviev.
"As far as I know, there will be four cutting and polishing factories here by the end of the year. That is; Diarough in Serowe, Schachter and Namdar in Molepolole, Euro star and Star Group in Gaborone.

Sunday Times: Diamond watchdog bares its teeth at Congo

Diamonds in the news: Diamond watchdog bares its teeth at Congo.

Excerpt:

The removal recently of the Republic of Congo from the ranks of legitimate diamond producers shows that the industry has both the will and the ability to combat trade in conflict diamonds.
This is the unequivocal view of Abbey Chikane, immediate past chairman of the Kimberley Process, which was launched by 52 countries in January last year in a bid to eliminate trade in conflict, or blood, diamonds.
The term is derived from diamonds that are mined in a war zone, often by under-age and underpaid labour, and sold clandestinely to finance an insurgent or invading army's military efforts.

Jeremy Norman's story, which the folks at Coca-Cola label a "virtual impossibility," goes like this:
On Friday evening the 18-year-old Lansing man bought a can of classic Coke at a summer carnival hosted by the Moores Park Neighborhood Organization, in south Lansing.
The last swallow yielded something solid - something that lodged in Norman's throat. "I almost choked on it," he said.
Norman claims to have extracted a woman's ring from his mouth. Funny, but there was nothing on the can about a free prize inside.

Bloomberg: Gold Rises as Dollar Drops, Lower Prices Spur Jewelry Demand

Jewelry in the news: Gold Rises as Dollar Drops, Lower Prices Spur Jewelry Demand

Excerpt:

Gold rose for the first day in six in London, as the dollar dropped against the euro and jewelers took advantage of prices near a one-month low.

The dollar gained 3 percent against the euro last week on speculation the Federal Reserve will boost U.S. interest rates further. Gold fell 4 percent in the period, touching $394.48 Friday, the lowest since June 18.
