MUMBAI, INDIA (GaeaTimes.com)- The Valentine Week is all set to start from February 7, and with that, lovers are wondering in what special way, they can impress their partners, by pampering them with some amazing gifts and goodies. For all those who belong to this clan of people, can now celebrate the day with diamonds, as India has planned t resume its diamond imports from Zimbabwe, with the latter agreeing to abide by Kimberley Process Scheme.
Diamonds are girls’ best friends, and needless to say, it is the eternal symbol of love and peace. So why not get a bit more expensive, to make the special person feel a little more precious? Rajesh Kalra, a representative from the Indian Diamond Institute, Surat said, that the green signal received by Zimbabwe, to import their high quality rough diamonds in India, would meet the high demands for the gem in the Indian market. According to him, it will dominate the stores in India and worldwide, especially because the Valentine week in on, and people are looking for Valentine celebration rings. The demands and supply process will get all more intense during the Valentine Week. Gem and Jewelery Export Promotion Council’s chairman, Rajiv Jain said that the first batch of diamonds that will arrive in India within the next few days, would be rough diamonds worth $160 million. This consignment was earlier prohibited on the grounds of Kimberley Process Scheme, as the nation allegedly violated human rights.
Nevertheless, since Kimberley Process Scheme is now observed by Zimbabwe, it will perhaps work in favor of the Indian lovers and make Valentine Week all more special and expensive. Apart from diamonds, several gift shops are also promoting their own Valentine Day scheme, to make the occasion more memorable this year.
