The Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America (DMIA), established in 1931, is the leading organization of America’s premier diamond manufacturers, importers, and dealers. The DMIA’s membership also includes numerous companies servicing the diamond trade such as banks, shippers, insurers, and diamond grading laboratories. The DMIA is a “Not for Profit” corporation.
IDCA is a not-for-profit organization and its foremost goal is to serve its members and provide them with a platform to connect, network, share and promote ethical business practices. It also provides an opportunity for its members to have a united voice and a common goal; promoting the business of Indian colorstone, diamond, and jewelry industry.
The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) advances diamonds’ desirability by publishing in-depth, engaging features and trend reports, sharing resources and information with consumers on the ultimate timelessness and singularity of diamonds. The NDC also works to support the integrity of the natural diamond industry, providing transparency, and insight on the ethics, sustainability, and progress of this sector.
