While Tansish and other retail jewelers in India may not currently emphasize the value of lab-grown diamonds, Goldiam’s management holds a distinctly optimistic view on the potential in this sector. This optimism is rooted in the significant cost difference, where a traditional 1-carat diamond can exceed 4-5 lakh rupees, while a comparable lab-grown diamond is available for around 60,000 Rs. The management anticipates a growing preference for lab-grown diamonds, particularly among individuals from rural income groups and the lower middle class, owing to their more affordable pricing.
Furthermore, the management has communicated an expectation for EBITDA margins in the range of 20-25% in the upcoming periods.
