RAPAPORT... Press Release, MUMBAI: The Rapaport Group is pleased to announce the first visit to India by the Rapaport Buyers Group - China (RBG-China). The buyers group includes twenty of China’s leading retail jewelers and wholesale dealers, who will be visiting India to buy diamonds, gems and jewelry. Many of the buyers will be visiting India for the first time.

The buying mission to India has been organized by Rapaport China as part of an overall initiative supporting China’s diamond, gem and jewelry buyers through the establishment of a proactive Rapaport Buyers Group (RBG). RBG members enjoy numerous benefits, including advice and assistance for the international sourcing of diamonds, gems and jewelry.

The RBG-China “Mission to India” is being sponsored by three leading Indian suppliers — Blue Star Diamonds, Rosy Blue and Shrenuj — and enjoys the support of India’s Gem and Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). The buyers will attend the India Diamond and Colourstone Show (IDCS) and the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS), and will visit diamond cutting and jewelry factories during their five-day visit to India. Rapaport India will be hosting the group during the visit, while Rapaport China will be organizing shipments, payments to suppliers and the import of products into China.
