I'm Edahn Golan, an analyst specializing in the economics of the diamond industry
Since the 2008 economic fallout, my work has been centering on research and analysis projects, focusing on polished prices, the rough diamond market and diamonds as an investment asset class.
This focus includes advising global diamond firms, industry bodies and governmental agencies, writing research papers on topics ranging from provenance analysis of fancy color diamonds to diamonds' contribution to local economies, as well as contributing or writing the diamond chapters for financial institutions and leading research teams such as KPMG and Bain & Co.
I'm the former editor-in-chief of IDEX Online, a leading diamond industry news and analysis website and an active trading platform for the global diamond and jewelry industry.
With more than 20 years of experience in traditional and new media, I've been a TV director, radio show host, writer and editor.
My articles about the diamond and diamond jewelry industry have been quoted by university and economic researchers, investment firms, human rights groups, intelligence organizations, trade publications and blogs around the world.
