WELCOME TO THE DIAMOND COMMUNITY
The Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE) was established in 2005 to provide local, regional and international diamond and precious stones companies a platform from which to trade, network and grow their businesses.
Located in the iconic Almas Tower, at the crossroads of producing and consuming countries, the DDE is at the heart of the diamond trade, and provides bespoke services to over 500 regional and international diamond companies including renowned brands such as DeBeers, International Gemological Institute and Dhamani Jewels amongst others.
Almas Tower is also home to the Dubai Gold and Diamond Vaults, the region’s only Kimberley Process office, the Dubai Pearl Exchange and more. Value-added services for DDE members include shipping, grading, vaulting, boiling, regular networking opportunities, and invitations to DMCC events such as the inaugural Dubai Diamond Conference and the Dubai Precious Metals Conference.
The DDE is the only bourse in the region that is affiliated with the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB). Founded in 1947, the WFDB provides a legal framework and enacts regulations for its member diamond bourses to uphold international standards. As part of the WFDB, DDE members have access to all 26-affiliated WFDB bourses around the world. As a result, DDE members are always ahead of market demands, aware of the latest trends and supported by an experienced team whose goal is to help grow the members’ business throughout the region.
DDE membership is far more than joining a prestigious community of industry peers, it offers tangible advantages that yield returns. The Dubai Diamond Exchange brings together several large scale initiatives that compliment the industry requirements, such as diamond tenders, conferences , arbitration and liaison with Government bodies such as customs.
As one of the top three diamond centres in the world, the Dubai Diamond Exchange is in line with international standards and best practice, and provides the industry with a state-of-the-art, professional and responsible trading platform.
