(Press Release)

NEW YORK – The Rapaport Group has announced the launch of a new diamond grading report called the Rapaport Investment Diamond Report (IDR).

The new report conservatively grades diamonds based on Gemological Institute of America (GIA) standards. Additional gemological information including tint, location and color of inclusions as well as high-resolution images are provided online and with the report.

All Rapaport Investment Diamond Reports are double-tested, as they include an additional independent GIA diamond grading report. The IDR will only be issued for the best quality Round 0.50 ct. and larger, D-H, IF-VS2, excellent cut, polish and symmetry, Rapaport Specification A1 diamonds that, in the opinion of Rapaport gemologists, meet investment quality standards. Diamonds that lack overall brilliance, have features that limit trade liquidity or have borderline grades may not be issued IDRs.

"The Rapaport Investment Diamond Report is designed to identify the best diamonds in the market while providing the trade, investors and consumers with the highest level of confidence in quality. It will enhance the ability to trade diamonds electronically and enable new highly liquid and efficient investment diamond markets," says Martin Rapaport, chairman of the Rapaport Group.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
