Hi,

I'm new on this forum and I'd like to learn many things and also participate in many post :)

I know about this post: https://www.gemologyonline.com/Forum/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=14052 but it has more other kind of gems websites and I know probably it's not a trade forum but I don't know where to ask and I though a gemological forum where I'd like to learn many things could be a good place.

I'm from Spain and I'm looking for website or companies that sell natural diamonds for a REALLY good price. When I put really in capitals letters it's because I've found many of websites and if I compare my current Spanish supplier with them, they are similar or worse pricees so it's not interesting for me who is looking for offering the best price for my customers, both public and jewelers.

I suppose I have to look for European sites because if we have to add duties (I don't know what is the percentage in Spain for diamonds) and taxes (with 21% of Spain is enough) probably it's gonna be more expensive (at least the initial prixe was very low) but even Antwerp's sites have the same or worse price than my provider, I don't know why.

Other people tell me about looking for India, China, ... but what is about duties?

That's true my supplier don't give me certificates of laboratory in small stones (but my mother who is a gemologist chech them) but also when he buys stones with certificate, they are usually cheaper than sites I've found.

I wish you can help me... I'm looking for natural diamonds, natural coloured diamond or treated diamonds (HPHT is right, other treatment dangerous for human being I'm not interesting) with excellent price.

I'm so sorry if my question it's not clear, this is not the correct forum and I'm sorry for my poor English.

Thank you so much,
Estanis.

PD: I hope to start participating more here :)

Hi Estanis,
I get your point about customs duties, so really you need to be looking in the EU. A firm I have found with good stock and keen prices (too cheap makes me nervous, with De Beers setting the prices, there is not a lot of scope for big discounts) is A Ruppenthal, in Idar-Oberstein, his diamond man is David Witter. Worth a try.

Join Rapnet if you want to deal in diamonds. https://www.rapnet.com/

It is the largest dealer to dealer diamond trading platform in the World. If you have a good understanding of diamond quality (particularly cut attributes) you will have the best information on value there is. The EU market is well represented with dealers on the site.

Thank you so much for your answer, I'll try them.

The only problem I can find in Rapnet is price... I mean, there are too many payments so another one... I'm not sure hehehe

I'll try them but another contribution is welcome too :)

Thank you.

EmeraldMitra if you have something to share, you can share it with everyone on our platform. We do not encourage PMs. This is a forum for freely sharing information. Wouldn't work well if everyone just sent PMs.
Thanks for understanding.

Barbra Voltaire, I agree with you.

On the other hand I can't see my private messages so I can't read you EmeraldMitra
