Looking for Diamond Parcels in the Far East

By Mike Fried,

The following exchange took place in April 2009.

I was wondering if i wanted to buy uncertified diamonds in parcels, how and who can i contact?

If you are untrained in buying diamonds, you can really get fleeced.  Why don’t you tell me where you are located, and I’ll see if I have any trustworthy contacts in the area I could send you to.  Is there a specific quality/size you had in mind?  This way I could give you a rough price estimate to shoot for before you try to buy.

I’m located in between JB Malaysia and Singapore. I’m looking at Sizes like 0.40-0.80cts with Very Good- Excellent makes.

A former colleague of mine is one of the largest diamond dealers in Bangkok.  I also have a great contact in Hong Kong.  I am afraid that is as close as I can get in terms of people I know personally you could trust.  If you would be interested, I could search a directory of diamond dealers to see if I could find someone closer, but I wouldn’t be able to vouch for them.

I dun [sic] mind contacting your colleague in Bangkok. Thanks alot. =)

I then proceeded to privately send her my contact’s name, email, and phone number.   I’m not sure how it turned out in the end.
