RAPAPORT PRESS RELEASE, January 15, 2024, New York… The Rapaport Group is creating a new market for natural pearls. Working in partnership with the Bahrain government’s Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (DANAT), Rapaport will offer select US retailers and dealers a unique opportunity to stand out in the pearl market.

Rapaport and DANAT are united in our dedication to the creation of an ethical and transparent natural pearl market. The natural pearls are ethically sourced from licensed Bahraini divers under rigorous regulations that ensure environmental protection and sustainability. Every pearl’s authenticity and quality are certified by DANAT, underscoring our promise of integrity and excellence.

Natural pearls are only available in very limited quantities setting them apart from commonly found cultured pearls. Our distribution programs will focus on clients that wish to offer something truly special and rare to their customers.

Rapaport will be offering special custom natural pearls programs for select retail jewelers. The programs will provide natural pearl necklaces, earrings, pedants, and bracelets to jewelers who will then be able to reorder on a regular basis.

Responsible companies that wish to join our efforts creating an exciting new market for natural pearls are invited to visit and register their interest or email [email protected] for more information. Rapaport Natural Pearls will be on display at the Tucson AGTA Gem Fair, booth 1726, from Jan 30 – Feb 4.
