The story of the De Beers company dates all the way back to 1888 when it was founded by Cecil Rhodes, who received financing from Alfred Beit (a South African diamond magnate) and N M Rothschild & Sons bank in London.

But it is supposed that the company’s history goes back to 1866, once the Eureka Diamond wad was discovered. De Beers’ two shareholders include Anglo-American (who have 85 percent ) and the Republic of Botswana Government (who have the rest of the 15 percent ).

Now the De Beers Group of companies that specializes in diamonds also continues to be included with the majority of steps of this diamond pipeline, for example, diamond mining; diamond exploration; diamond sorting; diamond trading; diamond detail; in addition to industrial diamond manufacturing sectors.
