RAPAPORT... Rapaport News caught up with Reuven Kaufman, president of New York’s Diamond Dealers Club (DDC), to gauge the mood in the US trade at the start of 2019.

Retailers had a good holiday season, but have been wary about taking on too much inventory due to global economic factors affecting sentiment, Kaufman explained. He also outlined how changes in Chinese buying habits were impacting the US retail market.

Plus, how did the government shutdown influence the trade, and what is the DDC’s stance on lab-grown diamonds?
