What is the Rapaport Price List?

The Rapaport Price List is the international benchmark used by dealers to establish diamond prices in all the major markets.

  • There are Price Lists published for both Round and Pear shaped diamonds, with the Pears price list used as an indication for all fancy shapes

  • All prices are in USD and represent Rapaport’s opinion of diamond prices based on research, analysis, and methodology, to reflect prices in the diamond markets as accurately as possible.

  • Prices in this report reflect our opinion of High Cash Asking Prices. High Cash Asking Prices is the asking price that a seller would always be prepared to accept, if the deal was made for a single diamond, in cash

  • Cash means no credit, memo, return, or other terms

  • This is not the same as a transaction price

  • Price Sheets are updated every Thursday at midnight NY time.
