    Cut and polished diamond exports fell 12 per cent to $16 billion ($19 billion), while that of gold jewellery more than halved to $5 billion ($12 billion).

    Hit by Covid-19, gem and jewellery exports dropped 28 per cent last fiscal to $25 billion against $35 billion in the previous financial year, as per the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council data.

    Cut and polished diamond exports fell 12 per cent to $16 billion ($19 billion), while that of gold jewellery more than halved to $5 billion ($12 billion).

    However, silver jewellery shipments increased 39 per cent to $2 billion ($1.67 billion) even as coloured gemstone exports declined 42 per cent $187 million ($320 million).

    In rupee terms, overall gems and jewellery exports declined by 26 per cent to ₹1.86-lakh crore (₹2.50-lakh crore) in FY21. CPD exports fell nine per cent to ₹1.20-lakh crore (₹1.32-lakh crore), while gold jewellery shipments were down 58 per cent to ₹35,483 crore (₹84,271 crore).
