An exhibition of 1- to 11-carat diamonds and jewellery worth a total of around €6 million (Sk181 million) was opened for public viewing at the Bratislava Show Room on Ventúrska Street, organisers said on November 18.
The highest-value diamond, as big as a 50-heller coin, is priced at close to €1.1 million (Sk33.1 million). Visitors will be able to view the collection between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. until November 22, Diamonds International Corporation further states. For security reasons, only five visitors are allowed into the exposition area at a time. The diamonds on display are for sale. Investing in diamonds is lucrative, as their price has never dropped in recent decades. In fact, with quality diamonds, it has gone up by 10-18 percent annually. TASR
