(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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
