A decade with Okavango Diamond Company

Posted by Dimexon Diamonds on

The Botswana rough diamond supplier hosted a special evening in Gaborone to mark its anniversary, during which Dimexon received a special recognition.

Okavango Diamond Company (ODC) held a celebration in Gaborone last night to mark its first decade in business. Dimexon staff were among the invited guests at the gala – as were Botswana president Mokgweetsi Masisi and First Lady Neo Masisi.

Since ODC was founded in 2014 as a rough diamond marketing company, it has become a major player in the market. The company, which is wholly owned by the Botswana government, now supplies 500 companies globally, including Dimexon. Its annual sales are estimated to be about $900 million.


ODC sources its rough diamonds from miner Debswana, a joint partnership between the government and De Beers Group. Diamonds unearthed by Debswana account for 98% of the country’s diamond production.


During the evening, which was held on April 4th, 2024, Dimexon received a special recognition from ODC to mark 10 years as a loyal customer – supporting the company since its very beginning. Dimexon general manager Samir Mehta was presented with a certificate by ODC chairman of the board Gape Kaboyakgosi and managing director Mmetla Masire.

“The Okavango Diamond Company is growing its operations in the coming years and continues to be an important rough diamond source for Dimexon,” says Samir Mehta. “This 10 Year Loyal Customer Award shows that the ODC recognises us as a partner for its future growth plans. In turn, we see the ODC as a trusted source of ethically sourced diamonds and a business that mirrors our own ethos and company values.”
