RAPAPORT... US imports of polished diamonds slid 12% to $2.87 billion in the first two months of 2020, even before the coronavirus had started to have a major impact on the economy. February imports were flat at $1.44 billion. The country has seen a continued slowdown in trading: Every month since August 2019 has recorded polished imports of below $1.5 billion (see graph below).

About the data: The US, the world’s largest diamond retail market, is a net importer of polished. As such, net polished imports — representing polished imports minus polished exports — will usually be a positive number. Net rough imports — calculated as rough imports minus rough exports — will also generally be in surplus. The nation has no operational diamond mines but has a manufacturing sector, so normally ships more rough in than out. The net diamond account is total rough and polished imports minus total exports. It is the US’s diamond trade balance, and shows the added value the nation creates by importing — and ultimately consuming — diamonds.

Correction, August 9, 2020: A previous version of this article contained incorrect data on polished imports and exports for January and February.
