RAPAPORT... The Kimberley Process (KP) chair will hold a forum in Dubai next week aimed at finding a consensus on the criteria for evaluating rough diamonds.

The event will take place at The Westin Dubai, Al Habtoor City, on November 13 on the first day of the upcoming KP plenary, which will run until November 17 in the emirate.

The meeting, the third in a series of workshops, will look to leverage the expertise of industry players from across the diamond industry spectrum and establish best practices for rough valuation, the KP said.

“We made important strides in the past meetings with delegates agreeing on a preliminary set of criteria for diamond valuation,” KP chair Ahmed Bin Sulayem said. “The third KP special forum – the last in the series – will be critical to the success of this evolving discussion.”

The forum will comprise two panels moderated by Tim Dabson, director of Tim Dabson Consulting, and Peter Meeus, special adviser on diamonds to the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre.

Panellists will include Gaetano Cavalieri, president of CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, and Ernie Blom, president of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses.
