Shanghai Diamond Exchange

Authorised by the State Council, the Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) is the only diamond exchange in China and provides diamond dealers a fair and safe transaction venue under close supervision. It also enjoys a favourable taxation policy and is operated in accordance with international best practices of the diamond industry.

Established in 2000, the SDE is a non-profit, self- regulating membership organisation and a member of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses.

“SDE has had the privilege of witnessing the birth of the Awards from scratch, as well as the overwhelming hardships it has conquered to become a remarkable awards programme for the trade. As we usher in its eighth year, SDE will continue to work closely with the JNA Awards team and other related parties to bring this great Awards to a new level.”
