B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n / 0 2 9 3.0/D09 A n d r e m e s s i k a d i a m o n d s l t d . These are busy times for Andre Messika, one of the world’s most respected polished diamond merchants. He is celebrating his 50th year in the industry, and his son has joined the business. Andre Messika Diamonds Ltd. was honoured as Israel’s “Outstanding Exporter” (2012), and has added new offices and high-tech facilities to its operations. Messika is also working on projects which benefit the diamond industry. He discusses all these here. What does the “Outstanding Exporter” award say to clients about Andre Messika Diamonds Ltd.? In addition to being a leader in France – where the company began –, being ­recognised as the best in 2012 demon- strates our knowledge and expertise in technical and service terms, as well as our competitiveness. Our clients can be ­assured that they have chosen the right partner. Are there important developments in the company for 2013 or 2014? Yes. We’ve opened our new Israeli office and a new high-tech factory in the Israel Diamond Exchange in Ramat Gan. All- new tools detect synthetic diamonds, that are infiltrating our industry via ­fraudsters. With these, we can assure our clients we’re protecting them from those un­ desirable products. In addition, we opened new offices in Hong Kong and Antwerp in 2013, and will open one in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2014. What’s new in client service? We’ll soon offer workshops to train clients’ sales and marketing people about diamond colour, clarity and shapes, and how to detect synthetic diamonds, in order to help them strengthen their own customers’ trust. What are the company’s most in-demand diamonds? Stones between 0.30 carat to 5 carats, single stones/matching pairs, rounds and fancy shapes, and white and fancy colour of outstanding quality comprise our main market. Among coloured diamonds, it’s mostly stones from 2 carats to 20 carats. What project are you working on now? We want to train promising young Israeli diamond cutters, possibly in a school or special programme. Nothing is finalised, but it’s an important project for us in the near future.
