Every Monday The Carat Soup shines a spotlight on Hidden Gems: extraordinary women in our industry.  This week’s focus is on Mosibudi Jo Mathole and Khomotso Ramodipa. Two women (they are sisters too!) based in South Africa, that are pioneers in our field.

BEDFORDVIEW, SOUTH AFRICA — Mosibudi Jo Mathole and Khomotso Ramodipa are rare gems in the male-dominated diamond industry. The South African sisters run one of the few women-owned diamond polishing businesses in the world. And, despite the slumping global market for diamonds, and a shrinking industry in South Africa, they’ve managed to keep shining and developing new female talent. via
