Report charts 40 years of polished prices
(NEW YORK) – The Rapaport Group has released its Diamond Price Statistics Annual Report for 2019, 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.
Diamond prices fell in 2019 as the trade faced macroeconomic uncertainty and industry-specific challenges. Demand from China was cautious amid the US-China trade war and demonstrations in Hong Kong. Manufacturers were under pressure due to excess supply, tight liquidity stemming from reduced bank credit and low profit margins, and sluggish demand.
The Rapaport Diamond Price Statistics Annual Report charts the progression of polished prices for various sizes, both in 2019 and over the past 40 years. In doing so, it 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 http://store.rapaport.com/ for $250. It has also been released in the January 2020 issue of Rapaport Magazine.
