PROFILE

Established in 1973 by a group of colored gemstone traders, the Israel Precious Stones and Diamonds Exchange (IPSDE) is today the world’s largest diversified gemstone bourse, gathering under its umbrella 250 members, who are involved in the trade of colored stones, diamonds and other precious gems.


While the precious colored gemstone business plays a key role in the daily life of IPSDE, it is the bourse’s members’ ability to supply a full variety of gemstones that sets it apart in the local and international trade. IPSDE is one of a handful of institutions worldwide that offers buyers the opportunity of sourcing all gems materials under one roof, include a full variety of diamonds.

Since 1979, IPSDE has been headquartered on the first floor of the Maccabi Building in Ramat Gan, which is one of the four interlinked skyscrapers that make up the Israel Diamond Exchange complex, the world’s largest self-contained gemstone trading facility. The IPSDE office includes the bourse’s trading floor and administrative facilities.


Most of its members’ offices are located within the IDE complex and in the surrounding buildings.
Once every two years, IPSDE members at their General Assembly elect the President, Board of Directors and committee members.


tanding committees include a Judicial and Disciplinary Committee, a New Members Screening Committee, an Ethics Committee and a Control Board.
The serving IPSDE President is Shlomo Eshed. He is supported by a professional administrative staff headed by the Chief Executive, Ronen Perlmuter, and secretaries Esther, Meira and Ilana.

IPSDE represents its members before the Israeli government authorities and international organizations associated with the gemstone trade. This includes contact with the authorities involved in the regulation of the diamond and colored gemstone trades in the Ministry of Economy, and the tax and customs authorities.
