Prospective June grooms will pay
larger sums for diamonds, or pros
pective June brides will wear
ifinaller diamonds this year than
There are now two ways about
that. Diamonds have gone up.
Some of the most conservative es
timates of local Jewelers are that
diamonds have gone up fully 10 per
cent since the first of the year.
Others estimate that In the last flvs
years diamonds have risen In prlee any
where from 10 to 25 per rent. Thus a
diamond that cost $1"0 five years ago
would bring from J120 to J12".
Here again tlie war is blamed for th
rise in price, especially In the last six
months or a year.
Beginning April 1, England Imposes an
export duty on diamonds. Tills, coupled
with the fact that at tho present mo
ment England controls the diamond mar
ket of tho world. Is looked upon by jew
elers as significant, and as explanatory
of the high price of diamonds and the
prospect of higher prices still.
England has long controlled the Aus
tralian and the African dlnmon.i mines.
In tlie main. But the conquest of tier
man territory in Snnth Africa by Eng
land has given England much, more
nearly a complete control of the situa
tion than it ever enjoyed before.
Holland Cats Diamonds.
Holland does most of the cutting of
the real small stones, as labor Is cheap
there, and with the cost 'if labor In this
country the cutting of the real small
stones could not be made to pay. It Is
said. The shipping of even this, known
to Jewelers as the "small stuff," is con
trolled now by England and must he
taken through England before it la ex
ported. There the export duty Is placed
on It, with the result that even the small
stuff has risen in price, and Is esti
mated to be fully 2i per cent higher
than it was last fall.
By "small stuff" Is meant the stones
of less than one-third of a carat.
Another reason assigned for tho high
cost of diamonds is that even when the
export duty Is paid in England the In
surance on the cargo is so heavy In
these days of random floating mines
and wayward torpedoes that the insur
ance premium adds another large Item
to the cost before the finished stones
