RAPAPORT... De Beers announced Monday that diamonds with grading reports from its International Institute of Diamond Grading and Research (IIDGR) laboratories can now be uploaded to RapNet – Rapaport’s Diamond Trading Network.

“I would encourage all our grading customers to begin uploading their polished diamond inventories with IIDGR reports to the RapNet site,” said Jonathan Kendall, president of IIDGR. This will open “up their stock to the strong expression of demand we are seeing from retailers,” he said.

De Beers noted IIDGR becomes one of only a handful of grading laboratories to have its reports listed on RapNet. IIDGR launched its generic diamond grading program earlier this year, extending its grading activity with the De Beers Forevermark brand.

In a recent interview with Rapaport News, Kendall stressed the company’s use of technology in the grading process enables it to improve on accuracy and consistency.
