(PRESS RELEASE) The Rapaport Group, invites the diamond gem and jewelry industry to the annual Rapaport Breakfast at the JCK Las Vegas Show. This event, titled “State of the Diamond Industry,” will take place on Sunday, June 2, at 8 AM in the San Paolo Ballroom, Level 3, offering both in-person attendance and a live broadcast.

The Breakfast will include a special presentation by Martin Rapaport, who will address the key issues our industry is currently facing and how now more than ever you must know what is going on and how it will affect your bottom line.

The presentation will delve into pressing topics such as the demand for socially responsible diamonds, the effects of US and G7 sanctions on Russia regarding diamond prices and supply, the impact of synthetics on the market, and the influence of social media on Gen Z consumers.

In addition, this year’s Rapaport Breakfast will feature:

Mmetla Masire, managing director of the Botswana government’s Okavango Diamond Corporation, will discuss the future of natural diamond supply from an African perspective. Responsible for selling 25% of Debswana’s annual $4B rough diamonds production, Masire’s insights are invaluable.

Maksud Agadjani, a prominent figure on 47th Street and a powerhouse in rap jewelry with 1.6 billion views on social media, will explore the critical role of social media in today’s jewelry markets.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
