De Beers raised prices for its rough diamonds yet again as the industry’s dramatic recovery this year shows little sign of slowing. The top producer increased prices by about 5% at its July sale taking place this week, with most of the rises focused around higher-quality stones, according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. The Anglo American Plc unit raised prices at almost every sale this year, helping make up for a collapse in sales in 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic brought the diamond world to a standstill.
