( Israel will host hundreds of diamond dealers from around the world this month during the International Diamond Week at the Israel Diamond Exchange in Ramat Gan.

Delegations of diamond buyers from Panama, Italy, and Hong Kong will join representatives from more than 20 countries to learn more about the latest tools in diamond technology.

"Israel, as the world's leading specialist in larger fancy-shaped diamonds and fancy-color diamonds, has lots to offer to the top end of the jewelry design and manufacturing market," Israel Diamond Exchange President Yoram Dvash said.

Renowned British jeweler Stephen Webster, known as “jeweler to the stars,” will be the guest of honor.

“I am excited to be coming back to Israel after an absence of more than 20 years, and look forward to take part in the International Diamond Week in Israel. High quality diamonds are an integral part of my own jewelry creations, as well as the jewelry of the house of Garrard. I expect to be seeing a lot of those quality diamonds on the exchange floor during my visit!” Webster said.
