Alrosa sells diamonds worth US$ 288 million in May
Alrosa Group has sold US$ 288.0 million worth of rough and polished diamonds in May 2018. Rough diamond sales amounted to US$ 277.5 million, polished diamond sales – US$ 10.5 million.
Alrosa’s total diamond sales in five months of 2018 (January-May) amounted to US$ 2.299 billion, including rough diamonds sales of US$ 2.256 billion and polished diamonds sales of US$ 43.3 million.
Commenting on the sales results deputy general director Yury Okoemov said, “We continue seeing good demand for almost all assortments of our diamond products. There was a planned decrease in sales in May compared to the similar period last year due to the sale of the inventories accumulated by the beginning of the year and a seasonal decline in the current production, mostly driven by mining suspension at some alluvial deposits in the first months of the year.”
