Rapaport Press Release


RAPAPORT PRESS RELEASE, March 8, 2018, New York... Rapaport has released its newly redesigned report on the major jewelry auction sales, providing detailed information on selling prices in a clearer, more user-friendly format.

Magnificent Jewels Auction Results presents comprehensive data on sales of diamonds and colored gemstones at Christie’s and Sotheby’s flagship auctions in New York, Geneva and Hong Kong.

The new edition of the report organizes information in a more logical and accessible way. It presents lots by size category, making it easier for members of the jewelry trade to find the precise data they need on selling prices. It also illustrates top-selling lots with images, giving users a sense of the design styles that were in demand.

“Auction results are an important resource in understanding the state of the large-diamond and gemstone market,” said John Costello, publisher at Rapaport. “The redesigned Magnificent Jewels Auction Results report, including insightful commentary on the Fall 2017 Christie’s and Sotheby’s auctions and better-organized pricing data, is a valuable tool for anyone buying and selling large, exceptional stones.”

Three distinct sections deal respectively with white diamonds, colored diamonds and colored gemstones. The report states each stone’s characteristics — cut, carat weight, color and clarity — plus the selling price per carat. For white diamonds, it also includes the percentage discount off the Rapaport Price List.

The first edition, covering the Fall 2017 season of Magnificent Jewels auctions, is now available for purchase at store.rapaport.com for $250.
