They are not only a girl’s best friend, they can be yours.

Diamonds have long been a valuable item (particularly since the beginning of the 19th century) they have long maintained an air of elusiveness for the everyday investor or trader and for the common man, to whom they may have been nearly impossible to attain.

The reason diamonds are impossible to come by is that their production, transportation, refining and sale is controlled by an extremely limited group of countries, companies and personnel, in fact, 3 countries control over 50% of the diamond export market and if we expand to the top 10 countries the figure rises to almost 90%.

With a market share that is so big in a market that is worth over 80 Billion dollars a year for retail alone, there is very little cause to share the market and modernize it at all.

And that is exactly where CEDEX comes in – It aims to make the diamond trade accessible to everyone – including you!
