“Belarus has created the conditions for making artificial diamonds whose parameters and properties do not differ from the natural ones,” said Nadezhda Kotkovets, Deputy Head of President’s Property Management Directorate. Only five companies in the world apply similar technology and this is an important move for the country. Rings and earrings with Belarusian diamonds are a gift every woman will like. At the same time they are 2 to 2.5 times cheaper than similar foreign products and are as good as them in terms of quality and looks.
OOO AdamasInvest General Director Maksim Bord said that the company considers exporting the jewelry, for example to the U.S. and India. The enterprise expects the products to be in high demand.
