Paul talks with diamond and jewelry midstream expert Jon Phillips who joins the Podcast from Vancouver. The two start out discussing the place in the market for Canadian-provenance branded diamonds such as Maple Leaf Diamonds and CanadaMark. The conversation then shifts to whether consumers actually care about diamond fluorescence and other categorization nuance that is prevalent within the industry. Next, the two discuss how rough diamond supply is a function of price. Jon then candidly shares his thoughts on the manufacturing business, “memo” goods, lab-created diamonds and how the diamond and jewelry industry has changed in recent decades. The conversation concludes with Jon talking about current demand trends in the jewelry business in early-2021.
