For the first time in the history of Rapaport Magazine, the Price List and diamond data are splitting off from the jewelry content. Along with this month’s issue, subscribers will receive a new data report, as well as a special report sponsored by RDI Diamonds on the future of the industry.

In the May-June edition of Rapaport Magazine, we put the spotlight on three trends that are gaining momentum among independent retailers. Jewelers have noticed a penchant for mixed metals, a growing interest in colored-gemstone bridal rings, and a greater number of men becoming enthusiastic collectors. Designers and store owners share their insights on how to sell these categories to clients successfully.

Our publication also features previews of the three shows starting in Las Vegas this week. From the treasures of the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show to the high-end pieces at Couture, we highlight the key jewels you’ll want to have on your radar. And of course, we take a look at what to expect from the JCK and Luxury fairs in terms of market demand and coveted items.

Looking back at shows past, we explore the recent Watches and Wonders fair in Geneva, which brought us exciting designs such as gold timepieces, smaller dials and bright colors.

Another topic this edition covers is the lessons the diamond industry can learn from lab-grown gemstones. We look at how synthetic products have fared since their entry to the market, and whether their prices and public perception can help predict the fate of man-made diamonds.

Meanwhile, we celebrate natural minerals with a visit to the Musée de Minéralogie in Paris — which showcases a fascinating 300-year-old collection — and examine Rio Tinto’s masterful promotion of pink diamonds after the closure of the Argyle mine.

Among other things, this issue highlights retailers’ collaborations with designers on exclusive pieces that enhance both parties’ desirability, and how companies can preserve their legacy by keeping archives.

Auction results, a report on jewelry history courses, and a review of a book on antique French jewelry help round out the articles for this month’s magazine. We also profile multi-award-winning designer Adam Neeley, whose work is the subject of an exhibition at California’s Laguna Art Museum (LAM) and whose jewelry graces our front cover.
