Rapaport Magazine undergoes a comprehensive redesign

17 august 2017
In its 40th year, the iconic Rapaport Magazine, the primary source of diamond pricing and jewelry market information is relaunching after undergoing a comprehensive redesign.
The Press note from the company says that the reimagined print magazine has been developed with the needs of the reader at its core. The result is sharper storytelling and design, richer graphics and photography, and a more effective and enjoyable reading experience.
The content within the magazine is more accessible to readers, with infographics and panels providing quick snapshots of information, while feature-length articles provide deeper analysis and insight. The news section focuses on highlighting trends within the sector by linking together major announcements and events that occurred during the month, adds the company statement.
John Costello, Publisher of Rapaport Magazine says, “Rapaport has always strived to provide our industry with ‘information that means business.’ In these uncertain times, the newly redesigned magazine provides vital information while making the reading experience clearer and more enjoyable.”
“When revamping the publication, loyalty to the traditions of Rapaport Magazine was paramount, with all the long-standing contributors taking part into this exciting journey — along with some new names, all authorities within the industry,” says Sonia Esther Soltani, Editor of Rapaport Magazine.
