London: London Diamond Bourse members can now search goods from fellow members in the latest unveiling on their website. This exciting initiative is the latest development in the London Diamond Bourses passage into enhancing membership value.
Victoria McKay, the bourse’s chief operating officer, said, “It’s a radical move to enhance and dovetail with the traditional ‘trading across tables’ method by our members looking for stock but finding it increasing difficult to keep up to date with the ever growing membership.”
The bourse will be exhibiting the feature at International Jewellery London (IJL) this year with live demonstrations of the member’s platform. The search facility is user friendly and speedy to use.
Alan Cohen, a longstanding member, said, “One of the virtues of finding a stone in the U.K. from a fellow member is the ease of transaction, there are no shipping charges, customs, or waiting time and returning goods unsold is easy. It pays to search the London Diamond Bourse stock lists first, why would you source your special order abroad and have the aggravation.”
The London Diamond Bourse website already holds key information from the diamond world and says it will become a vital resource for all those involved with the U.K. diamond industry.
