    據英國媒體《Guardian(衛報)》報導,跨國鑽石珠寶商De Beers表示,有鑒於鑽石需求量明顯下滑,將減少鑽石的產量。

    這家全球最大鑽石商表示,將降低2008年11月與12月交付拍賣的鑽石原石數量,原因顯然想透過抑制產量,避免鑽石價格陷入大幅滑落。

    景氣大好時期,鑽石價格強勁上揚,就連今年盡管金融危機籠罩,但鑽石價格仍然漲了 16%。不過,現在的買氣顯然降溫許多,根據英國Gem Diamonds上星期的研究報告指出,最近交付拍賣的鑽石價格已經下挫約 16%。

    鑽石專家 Martin Rapaport也坦言,近期交易量的確大減。“股市狂跌、信貸風暴嚴酷,這都促使奢侈品需求萎縮。”

    不僅歐美的鑽石需求下滑,印度也出現類似情況。10月底的印度節日 Diwali(排燈節/光明節)時期通常是鑽石銷售的重要旺季,但今年的銷售情況不甚理想。

    以上種種對鑽石交易的最低層來說,是很糟糕的消息。據報印度有幾百位鑽石光工匠被迫瀕臨失業邊緣。

    The news from the above answer is not updated. It was the news of the time of economic downturn in 2008. Actually, the prices of diamond have been rising from the 2nd quarter of 2009. The demand is very large from Mainland China, India and Middle East, the supply is about constant. Actually, almost all the diamond mines were found in the world. Therefore, the diamond prices should be rising in long run.

    Besides, diamonds are commodity and priced in US dollar. The US dollar is deprecating, so diamond prices are rising too.

    Combine the above two effects, diamond prices will keep on rising and rising.

    全球經濟衰退,例如1975年的國際能源危機,與通貨膨帳,人民的實質收入大幅下跌;但是在同時因政府的鼓勵造成民眾的儲蓄率提高,發展工業基礎建設,總國民所得大致能維持在原先水準。再回頭來看鑽石價格的問題,在經濟學中的鑽石與水的價格問題,是放在需求面與供給面決定商品價格這個模型來討論的,商品的需求越高,供給越少,所決定出來的價格就越高;但是水是必需品但是供給很多,價格是中立不變的;鑽石是奢侈品,需求甚少,但是價格一直都是高不可攀的!水的問題可以用進口高級餐廳瓶裝水,大幅度改變價格;但是單純以在全球經濟衰退的條件,對鑽石的價格可能無法產生決定性的影響。
