"If you need to create a commodity market, you need products that are consistently the same," said Rosalind Kainyah, director of public affairs USA for De Beers. "You need to be fully aware of the price -- something that is known as price discovery in the commodities market -- and the general consensus is that you cant say that about diamonds," she said.
...
Kainyah insists that "they are, by definition, not freely interchangeable." De Beers Group has developed a "sophisticated rough-diamond grading mechanism that has over 12,000 categories of rough diamonds to recognize how highly variable diamonds can be in their size, shape, color and clarity," she said.
...
At the same time, "in the absence of either a spot-pricing mechanism or of a universally-agreed grading system, it is difficult to see how meaningful quantities of diamonds can be exchanged remotely between non-expert strangers in real time," said Kainyah. So what makes Rapaport so sure itll work this time around? "The challenge is to define them, standardize them. Thats what were going to do," he said. Rapaports diamond futures market will consist of "independently certified, polished diamonds." "There will be standards. Once they fit that standard, they can be traded," and the "concept of standardization is possible," he said. He admits that hell use the grading system for diamonds as a way to standardize them, but declined to provide further details on exactly how that would be done. "Theres a tremendous amount of investors interested in creating efficient markets," he said.
