As the Indian production started to wane, diamonds were discovered in 1725 in Brazil. These deposits were able to maintain a steady supply of small stones after 1730.
Large quantities of significant size stones appeared on the market only with the exploitation of the South African diamond fields from 1866 onwards. The discovery of these deposits also led to the first sudden increase in supply. This increase coincided with the new wealth generated by the Industrial Revolution and the corresponding rise in the demand for luxury goods by a broader range of consumers.

South Africa's alluvial diamond deposits were discovered near the Orange River.
