RAPAPORT... The London Diamond Bourse (LDB) has appointed Katherine Chappell as its special adviser for ethical issues.

Chappell (pictured), a longstanding member of the LDB, has worked in the gemstone industry for more than 20 years and is a specialist in fair-trade principles, the exchange said.

“For the LDB, this means we can enhance our conversations around responsible sourcing and engage in a more relevant dialogue, at the same time as strengthening the bourse’s understanding of specialist issues,” said Victoria McKay, the LDB’s chief operating officer.

“There are clear opportunities for the London Diamond Bourse in this area,” Chappell said. “I am excited about the prospect of working with the management team and clarifying the industry’s fair-trade principles.”
