Since being founded in 2015, Nemesis International has been providing an indispensable service in the field of diamond trading and evaluation. Nemesis International is a rough and polished diamond trader based in Dubai that also provides consulting and marketing services to jewellery industries. However, it has recently worked with the DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodoties Center) to open Dubai’s first diamond manufacturing company, Almas Diamond Services.
Diamonds have always been in demand and people appreciate a well-crafted diamond piece. The whole crafting process is, however, a test of skill and knowledge and not many can achieve the final brilliance that the diamond deserves. In order to meet the high expectations of this field, Almas Diamond Services has invested in some of the most cutting-edge equipment and skilled personnel.
Konema Mwenenge, the chief executive officer of Nemesis International, has hopes that the factory would contribute significantly to the GDP of the country and help boost economic growth. A graduate from SCIENCES PO, in Paris, the CEO holds Masters in Economics and Finance. He has guided Nemesis International to become a leading diamond trader. With a diamond manufacturing company in their vicinity, it would be easier for Nemesis International to make the journey of the diamond from mines to a jeweller even more streamlined.
Almas Diamond provides evaluation, cutting and polishing services of rough diamonds. Since its founding, Almas Diamond Services is expected to work on some famous rough diamonds, and the factory is definitely standing up to all the claims and expectations so far.
One of its famous projects would is the 813-carat Constellation diamond. The diamond in its raw form was displayed during the inauguration ceremony of the factory. It was bought by Nemesis for 63.1 million dollars in partnership with the Swiss de Grisogono jewellers. It is estimated to be completed in ten or twelve months. The state-of-art equipment would be put to test and even master cutters were recruited from Antwerp to aid in this project.
The Constellation is currently the most expensive rough diamond to be ever sold with 77,613 dollars per carat. Before Constellation, de Grisogono has worked on another famous piece, Creation 1. Creation 1 is an emerald-cut, 163-carat, D flawless diamond. Nemesis and de Grisogono had worked on it together. Constellation is going to be another addition to the brilliant partnership of Grisogono’s extensive knowledge in jewellery making and Nemesis’ expertise in diamonds.
The usefulness of Almas factory is however not only limited to crafting stunning diamond pieces alone. It is contributing a lot to the diamond-related activities taking place in Dubai. Dubai Diamond Exchange has hence found itself as a one-stop shop and is now operating full service.
According to Konema Mwenenge, this new factory shows his interest to market in Dubai. He expects it to be able to help in the growth of Dubai’s diamond industry. It would be soon able to produce a good turnover of ‘high-volume rough to high-value polished’ diamonds. Almas Diamond, albeit new, certainly has the drive to flourish in the Dubai diamond industry.
