Diamond prices will surely be higher when the effect
of the new export duties and U. S. taxes are added.
For many years the market of diamonds has shown

conditions of supply and demand. Authorities ex

tendency of prices, for while diamonds are becoming scarcer, the
demand is growing greater and greater.
