Alrosa and the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) Asia will host a seminar on colored diamonds at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.
The session, named “How the World of Natural Colour Diamonds Continues to Evolve,” will cover Alrosa’s polished-diamond division, and the miner’s increased focus on colored-diamond manufacturing.
Representatives from Alrosa’s polished branch will speak at the event, including general manager Pavel Vinikhin and deputy director for sales Evgeny Tsybukov. They will join Ren Lu, a professor at China University of Geosciences’ Gemmological Institute and a former senior scientist at the Gemological Institute of America. Rapaport Senior Analyst Avi Krawitz will moderate the panel.
Alrosa will also auction a collection of colored diamonds at the fair, it said earlier this week. The “True Colour” collection includes an 11-carat purple-pink stone, as well as an orangey-yellow diamond weighing more than 15 carats.
