With diamond prices surging in 1978 and crashing in 1980, the need for honest diamond pricing and market information became apparent. At this time, the Rapaport Price Sheet became the primary source for pricing info, but this wasn’t enough. The time had come for real trading information to be shared – actual asking prices and real information about what people wanted to sell – from this, RapNet began.
