"Sales in November were consistent with our expectations. The core sales markets displayed strong demand for rough diamonds. The significant sales growth in monetary terms against last November (+36%) is due, in part, to the low base effect. As a result of the currency reform in India late last year, the demand for rough diamonds from small and middle-sized cutting and polishing companies in this country was temporarily reduced," ALROSA Vice President Yury Okoemov said commenting on the sales in November.
