Heading into the holiday season, the Rapaport Diamond Podcast assesses the prospects for the industry considering recent market developments.

The Las Vegas shows, followed by the AGS Conclave in Dallas and the AGTA GemFair in Denver, confirmed the positive mood within the trade. That’s because “people have had the best sales year of their lives,” said journalist Jennifer Heebner, who joined Rapaport’s Avi Krawitz and Joshua Freedman for episode 49 of the podcast.

The discussion also reflects on the hot trends to look out for in jewelry design and how preparations for the season have been different this year from past experiences. But there are caveats, as economic headwinds appear to lie ahead and the changing environment in China could yet impact the trade. Plus: The trio reveals which news stories they’re following that might further develop and affect the market.
