In volume terms, 3.2 million carats were exported in February 2016, an 8 percent improvement compared with 3.03 million carats of cut and polished diamonds exported in February last year.

Gold jewelry exports during the month were up by 74.43 percent to US$844.59 million as against US$484.2 million a year earlier, reports GJEPC.

Net exports from the gem and jewelry sector during February 2016 reached US$3.47 billion, a modest growth of 6.83 percent compared with exports of US$3.25 billion in February 2015.
