Rapaport Releases Annual Price Statistics Report 2017


New York, United States & Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

The Rapaport Group released its annual Diamond Price Statistics Report for 2017 today, evaluating the performance of polished-diamond prices. The report provides an in-depth analysis of the past year’s trends and compares the price changes within specific diamond categories.
 
The last 12 months saw some of those categories perform better than others, according to the report, while overall diamond prices continued to decline. Consistent shortages of select stones were also a feature of 2017, as diamond buyers were more particular about their preferences, resulting in steady demand for a narrower range of goods.
 
The Rapaport Diamond Price Statistics Report charts the progression of polished prices for various sizes, both throughout 2017 and over a period of up to 39 years. In doing so, the report provides a complete study of the global diamond market’s history, as well as its current standing. 
 
Also included is a diamond investment analysis detailing how various diamond categories have performed over the past 10 and 20 years in relation to other common investment instruments. 

The all-inclusive report is available for purchase online at store.rapaport.com for $250, and has also been released in the January 2018 issue of Rapaport Magazine.
