About the Rapaport Group of Companies
The Rapaport Group provides first class, authoritative services that support the
development of free, fair, efficient, competitive, and profitable diamond and jewelry
markets. Established in 1976, the Group has over 11,000 clients in 75 countries.
Group activities include published materials; electronic information services and
trading networks; diamond grading and certification; global trading and auction
services; consolidated international shipping; international sourcing, quality-control
and compliance services; and localized financial, research and marketing services.
A primary and unifying focus of the Group are knowledge-based information services
that create transparent and efficient markets. Examples are the Rapaport Price List
and Rapaport Magazine, the RapNet® Diamond Trading Network, GIA LabDirect® diamond
grading and certifications services, and the Rapaport Fair Trade Jewelry initiative.
The publishing division is best known for its Rapaport Price List. Established in
1978, the Report is the industry's primary source for diamond price and market information.
The Diamonds.net internet portal supports our 24/7 Rapaport News Service as well
as RapNet.com, the world’s largest diamond trading network with daily diamond listings
of 525,000 diamonds valued at over $4.12 billion. While the Group provides extensive
trading services to our clients, we do not trade diamonds for our own account.
Our dedicated team of over 120 highly skilled professionals; our sophisticated information
and data management technology; and our global reach, independent perspective and
total commitment to providing our clients with consistent first class service, are
what have made ‘Rapaport’ synonymous with ‘industry’ standard in the diamond world.
