De Beers Watches

Cecil John RhodesThe international De Beers corporation,salon De Beers involved in natural diamonds mining, processing and sales, was founded in 1888 in the Republic of South Africa by Cecil  Rhodes, a son of an English parish priest. The powerful industry creation was based on an incidental finding: the first diamond in the Republic of South Africa was found by a local shepherd in 1866 in the Orange River valley. Precious tones-hunters soon found out about the finding and many of them rushed to the Republic of South Africa.
 The company became the leader of the world's diamond business and signed contracts with many English banks about the exclusive rights to supply diamonds in a rather short period. By 1902 De Beers was controlling 95% of the world's diamonds production. In the 70-s of the XX century new countries, supplying diamonds appeared and the company receded from its positions dramatically. According to the 2008 state, De Beers controls only 40% of the market. The company's name was not chosen as a mere chance: De Beers are the brothers, on whose territory most of diamonds were situated.
 De Beers is also one of the biggest jewelery pieces producers. The “diamond giant” has been producing luxe-class wrist watches since 2007. The prices for De Beers watches start at $5000.De Beers
