Patented Reverse Auction

Suppliers Compete to give you the Best Prices

We understand that the diamond market can be highly competitive and volatile, and that sourcing diamonds can be a complex and time-consuming process. Our Reverse Auction solution is an innovative approach to diamond procurement that enables wholesale diamond buyers to purchase large volumes of diamonds to fulfil their orders at competitive prices while protecting their margins.

Our patented reverse auction system, powered by US Patent 7792723, makes it possible for diamond buyers to get the best possible prices from multiple suppliers without having to engage in tedious negotiations.

Don’t Overheat a Category

One of the key benefits of our patented reverse auction system is that it enables diamond buyers to purchase in large volumes without disrupting the market. This is particularly important when it comes to orders, where diamond buyers need to source a large number of stones of specific categories. So, whether it’s 1 diamond or 500, diamond buyers can be market buyers without overheating a category.

Best Possible Prices

Our reverse auction system sends your demands to all your vendors simultaneously, putting them into open competition to each other to fulfil your demand. Further, our procurement system does not reveal your buying details e.g. number of stones, forecasted price you might need. This results in suppliers providing their best prices and quantity to enable them to liquidate their stock before they lose their sale to their competitor. This protects your margins and increases GMROI. You then make informed decisions based on market prices and avoid the risks of overpaying for diamonds - reducing costs and increasing profitability.

Get First Dibs on Stones

Our “matching engine” automatically matches demands with newly listed diamonds that come into suppliers’ inventory. We send bid notifications to ensure that you get first dibs on the stones before they even hit the broader market.

Reduce Inventory

You can time your purchase over a specified period of time to reduce the amount of inventory you are holding at any given point. It allows you to buy diamonds only at the time that you need them with just-in-time delivery. This helps reduce your inventory cost.

Assured Supply

We facilitate long term contracts between buyers and diamond manufacturers of specific categories of diamonds to be delivered on specific dates. We have third-party quality control measures that ensure that each diamond passes inspection criteria set by you. This ensures you have an assured supply of diamonds enabling you to plan well in advance.

Access Long Tail of Supply

In addition to the suppliers that you may already have relationships with, you can access 100s of verified suppliers in the market that have met all our compliance measures. Smaller diamond suppliers not only give you access to more diamonds at better prices but also de-risk your dependency on only a handful of suppliers.

No Haggling

Our patented reverse auction system allows diamond buyers to send their demands to multiple suppliers simultaneously and get the best prices available in the market. By making suppliers compete with each other through our patented reverse auction system, our clients avoid the hassles of haggling on prices.

Quick and Easy

The platform design offers an efficient and user-friendly interface. Diamond buyers simply send their demands to multiple suppliers, and our system takes care of the rest. Suppliers submit their bids, and the diamond buyer can compare prices and select the best offer. This eliminates the need for tedious negotiations and allows diamond buyers to focus on other aspects of their business.
