Rapaport Press Release


November 6, 2008, New York
-RapNet, the Rapaport Diamond Trading Network, is pleased to present our new upgraded RapNet Price List. The new RapNet Price List provides the best and average asking prices for specific categories of diamonds offered for sale by the diamond trade on RapNet. Prices are presented in hundreds of dollars per carat and as percentages below the traditional Rapaport Price List. Prices are based on RapNet TradeScreen™ asking prices at midnight for Rapaport Specification 2 (RapSpec-2) or better diamonds graded by the GIA, AGS or HRD. The RapNet TradeScreen presents identical and additional real time price information on a 24/7 basis.

The RapNet Price List is distributed exclusively to members of Rapaport’s RapNet Diamond Trading Network. It differs significantly from the traditional Rapaport Price List which provides the diamond industry with a price guideline based on Rapaport’s opinion of high cash asking prices. The RapNet Price List is not based on opinion, but is solely based on actual diamond trade asking prices as presented on RapNet. As such, it changes in real time and may be much more volatile.

Rapaport’s RapNet is the largest diamond trading network in the world with daily listings of over $4 billion and 450,000 laboratory graded diamonds. RapNet offers a full range of clearing house services including guaranteed diamond transactions, shipping, financial, quality control and laboratory certification services.
