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.

That’s good news for industry participants who have been “squeezed by oversupply,” according to Bloomberg.

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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
