A diamond shortage is likely to hit the industry in the next few years, Bloomberg reports.

A supply deficit is predicted to hit sometime around 2021, according to new reports from industry analysts Berenberg and Panmure Gordon.

A shortage has been predicted for years but has never arrived, thanks to “underwhelming” demand and zealous mining.

Panmure anticipates a shortage of 15 million carats in 2021. That would amount to 10 percent of global supply.

Predictions call for rough diamond prices to begin rising in 2021 or 2022.

Wilkerson Testimonials

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
