Okavango Diamond Company (ODC), a company wholly owned by the government of Botswana, will hold diamond viewings at the India Diamond Trading Centre (IDTC) in Mumbai from July 20 to 25.

“We are very happy to know that Okavango Diamond Company is coming to India to display its diamonds. Our goal is to make rough diamonds available for small-scale manufacturers [in India], and we appreciate the miners who have been showing interest and bringing their diamonds to India for display,” GJEPC Chairman Praveenshankar Pandya said.

“I am sure ODC will appreciate the world-class facility offered at IDTC and that they will schedule other future viewing sessions at IDTC for our members.”

The goods that will be shown at the IDTC will predominantly be a selection of the -2 carats size ranges that will be offered for sale at ODC’s online auction scheduled for July 28, 2016. The viewings in India will be held parallel to those in Gaborone, Botswana. ODC viewing appointments at the IDTC will be available to any GJEPC and Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) members who have completed ODC’s registration process.

Toby Frears, managing director of ODC, commented, “We are delighted to be able to showcase ODC and Botswana’s diamonds in India, and are grateful to the IDTC for presenting us with this opportunity. We recognise the importance of the Indian industry to ODC, and we look forward to exposing new customers to the ODC brand and to promoting Botswana as a leading rough sourcing destination.”

Representatives from ODC will be in Mumbai on March 14 to meet those interested in becoming an ODC customer and answer any questions regarding ODC’s sales or registration process. The ODC team will be based at the BDB Trading Hall in H Tower (opposite to Gate No. 2).
