    If you can remain in the transit area at the airport you won't pass through customs so there's no need to declare anything. If you have to recheck bags or pass customs for any other reason you might be well advised to declare the diamonds and obtain a carnet for temporary import, if this facility is available. You should investigate this before departure. – Redd Herring Jun 22 at 5:55
  • Keep the proper documentation because even in transist zone in istanbul you have to go through security check. I have seen some verbel argumentions in instanbul between passengers and security guards that they confiscated thier stuff due to improper documents. – N Randhawa Jun 22 at 8:02
