Rapaport Research Report - June 2021
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.
In this edition, we look at the strategies shaping the lab-grown market and how they relate to natural diamonds. The report highlights different views on what gives a diamond its value and how that should play out in grading, pricing and selling the two products. As part of this picture, we explore transparency in the synthetics sector, as well as the natural-diamond trade’s response to claims about its impact on the environment.
