GOLDEN YELLOW DIAMONDS
Golden Yellow Diamonds is an established diamond trader and manufacturer that has an exceptional flair in evaluating and sourcing high value fancy colours and gem quality colourless diamonds.
Our heritage covers over six decades of diamond sourcing and valuing expertise. Looking for new opportunities in the 1960s, our ancestors began exploring the rough diamond trade in Africa. However, while conflict arose in Western Africa – the Antwerp diamond market was flourishing, and so a strategic move to Antwerp in the 1980s allowed us to be established as one of the most reputable diamond traders in the market there.
In the 1990s South Africa became the largest diamond producing country, with over 100 million carats a year. It was (and still is) an important source for fancy coloured diamonds. With renowned mines like the Cullinan, Finsch, and Koffiefontein, our next big move was to establish a strong foothold there and tap into the fancy coloured diamond market.
After being positioned in Johannesburg for over 20 years, we are constantly looking at new opportunities and markets. Presently, Dubai is establishing itself as a great trading hub between Western and Eastern markets. The next step is to set the building blocks of our expansion to Dubai where the next generation of expertise will pave the way.
DID YOU KNOW?
Our name “Golden Yellow Diamonds” originates from a very rare form of vivid yellow diamonds found near a small town in Sierra Leone called Zimmi. These Zimmi stones are valued as a premier tier of vivid yellow diamonds as they are formed with a relatively stronger saturated colour than any other yellow diamonds typically found elsewhere. Simply put, they are Golden Yellow Diamonds.
