Rapaport Research Report - October 2018
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, we assess the added value traceability programs bring to the market, outlining the different platforms that may benefit from being first movers in this space and understanding what is motivating this trend. The report asks the question: Can a diamond with proven provenance garner a premium over those that do not demonstrate traceability?
