Diamond International Importers
Diamond Brokers Queensland are direct importers of fine quality internationally certified premium loose diamonds. Diamond are an international product that is universally bought and sold at a wholesale level in $US, they are then converted into the currency that it then resides for retail purposes. No matter where you buy your diamond in the world the wholesale price of the diamond will not actually change. Where people believe that it is cheaper to buy a diamond overseas is in the retail price. Each country sets its own recommended retail price for diamond jewellery and this is where the difference can be noticed. The Australian RRP is quite high and if comparing the price between retail stores then buying overseas does seem like an attractive prospect. A much better option is to find a direct diamond importer in Australia who can source you a diamond from an international manufacturer at the best possible price.
Why do Diamonds Need to be Imported?
Although Australia is a large producer of mined diamonds including many fancy yellow and pink diamonds unfortunately we do not have a diamond cutting and polishing industry. This is somewhat due to a lack of of skilled workers and the relatively small size of the Australian diamond market. Therefore all of the polished diamonds that are in Australia must be imported from the world’s international diamond manufacturing centres. The major suppliers of cut or polished diamonds are Belgium, Israel, Russia and India.
One of the best ways to save money when purchasing a diamond is to ask your diamond merchant to order your diamond direct from the manufacturer. As the Australian diamond market is quite a small market compared to other world markets the variety and quantity of diamonds is limited, finding the perfect diamond can sometimes be difficult. Often when looking for a large or unusual quality diamond there may not even be a stone in Australia that will accurately match your requirements and ordering your diamond direct from a diamond importer will let you get the exact diamond that you are after. It will also often be the cheapest way to buy a diamond as it means that it has not been held in stock by a supplier who may be asking a higher price.
Diamond International certification
Buying a diamond direct is now also a very secure method because of the introduction of quality international certification laboratories providing standardised grading reports to accurately describe the quality of a diamond and standardise the price structure. As diamonds are an expensive product people will often feel the need that they must view the diamond they wish to purchase before they will pay any money. Although this is a little of a foreign concept to accept, with the accuracy of certification and the expertise of a good diamond merchant a diamond can be purchased site unseen with the knowledge that it will look exactly as required. Learning how to choose what will be the best diamond for yourself is more the question to be answered. To help with this a good diamond importer can discus your preferences and allow you to view diamonds of varying grades.
