IN THE U.S., dealers are cautiously optimistic, as seasonal retail business has been in line with expectations. Overseas, the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair posted betterthan-expected results. Product is also slightly more affordable this year because of modest price corrections that have gradually occurred in certain diamond and colored stone categories since the market peaked in late 2013 to early 2014. Meanwhile, Tanzania—a major producer of spinel, garnet, sapphire, and, of course, tanzanite—stopped issuing mining licenses. This follows a series of June reforms aimed at increasing the economic benefit derived from the nation’s vast mineral resources. The government’s aim is to curb the outflow of material that has not followed export regulations. Local traders expect the situation to be resolved quickly; if not, the U.S. retail market could be adversely affected.
