THE FIRM > AN INTRODUCTION TO THE DE BEERS SIGHTHOLDER STATUS

The De Beers Group of Companies is the world's largest diamond mining house, supplying over a third of the total global supply of rough diamonds, by value. It sells rough diamonds contractually ten times a year to 'De Beers Sightholders': a selected group of diamantaires who have demonstrated both outstanding business performance and ethical accountability. Rough diamonds are supplied in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, at these regular 'Sights'.

De Beers Sightholders are selected on their proven abilities in the core areas of business and strategic planning, manufacturing excellence in relevant categories of rough diamonds, business reputation and strict adherence to a code of ethical accountability.

The benefits of being a De Beers Sightholder include quality, consistency and predictability of supply, as well as enhanced corporate reputation. Sightholders are recognised as being amongst the most important diamantaires within the industry and competition to become one of them is consistently fierce.

Bonas is privileged to count a large list of Sightholders among its clients, and is actively engaged in working with companies keen to receive supply from De Beers, helping them to fulfil De Beers' stringent selection criteria and ultimately to be accorded Sightholder status.
