Rapaport Research Report - November 2019
The Rapaport Research Report is essential reading for those seeking to understand diamond price trends and the current state of the industry throughout the diamond pipeline.
The report includes extensive, proprietary data from RapNet, the world’s largest diamond trading platform, giving a snap shot of real-world pricing information, inventory levels and transactional data to help you keep track of the market. This includes average prices, discounts and inventory by country alongside search volume, average time to sale and transaction volume.
In addition to reviewing the global rough, polished and retail markets, each month the Rapaport Research Report focuses in on a key issue affecting the diamond industry, providing definitive analysis and insight, while assessing the potential impact on your business and the industry as a whole.
This month’s edition focuses on fluorescence. Diamonds with this trait sell at a significant discount to those without it. Yet the general perception in the industry is that consumers don’t mind fluorescence, and sometimes even like the effect. We examine how the value of fluorescent diamonds has deteriorated in the trade over time, and explore the opportunities these stones may present in today’s market.
