Gaurang Gohel

Managing Director Sales

Gaurang Gohel has been trading diamonds in the famous Diamond Square Mile of Antwerp for the most part of his life. He has been buying and selling diamonds between India, Belgium, USA and Hong Kong for over 30 years.  During this period he was asked many times by friends, about their desire to invest in diamonds but….there were quite some reasons for this. “We do not know the price of the diamonds”, “When we go to sell it back we get a lot less than what we paid for to buy” , “ how do we know this is a good quality diamond?” and so on. When he heard of the solution that ID Diamonds brings to all these problems, he knew this is the future. 

When it comes to trading diamonds it always comes down to personal chemistry and relationship between a buyer and a seller. Know-how and experience on the trading floor is very important and necessary when it comes to find the best of the diamonds in top colour and top clarity. Because we want only the best stones for our Knoxes at the most competitive prices.
