Okavango Diamond Company (ODC) has announced to host diamond viewings at India Diamond Trading Centre (IDTC) from 20th to 25th July 2016 for GJEPC and BDB members.

GJEPC Chairman Praveenshankar Pandya said, “We are very happy to know that Okavango Diamond Company is coming to India for displaying its diamonds. The endeavour is to make the rough diamonds available for small scale manufacturers here, and we appreciate the miners who have been showing interest and bringing their diamonds to India for display. I am sure ODC would appreciate the world class facility offered at IDTC and would also schedule its future viewing sessions with ITDC for our members”.

The goods being shown at the IDTC will predominantly be a selection of the -2 carats size ranges that will be offered for sale at ODCs July online auction on July 28th 2016. The viewings in India will take place in parallel to those in Gaborone, Botswana. ODC viewing appointments at the IDTC will be available to any GJEPC and 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 14th March to meet those interested in becoming an ODC customer and to 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).
