抵制那些被过度评级的钻石



Rapaport集团的董事长Martin Rapaport发表了一份综合社论“诚实地评级”,文中披露了超过10万颗钻石存在“过度评价”的问题,这批钻石的总价值超过了10亿美元。Rapaport呼吁整个正统的珠宝行业来共同抵制那些出售过度评级的钻石的行为,因为这些行为愚弄了消费者,让他们误认为自己能够买到比之前所买钻石品质更好的钻石。采用美国宝石学院(GIA)的评级术语来对钻石进行评级,但是却用另外一套过度评级的标准,这很不公平, “钻石的过度评级是一个法律和道德问题,这是对钻石和珠宝贸易合法性的挑战。必须要警告消费者不要相信那些被误导的钻石评级报告以及那些向他们出售钻石的零售商。钻石供应商也必须为他们所销售的钻石质量负责。钻石贸易必须要优先保护消费者的利益。” Rapaport如是说。
Rapaport Calls for End to Over-grading of Diamonds
Cites Threat to Industry. Calls for Full Disclosure to Consumers.
Martin Rapaport has released a comprehensive editorial entitled “Honest Grading” that discloses the systematic over-grading of over one hundred thousand diamonds, valued at more than a billion dollars. Rapaport calls upon the legitimate jewelry trade to reject those selling over-graded diamonds that fool consumers into believing they are getting better diamonds than they are receiving.

The article declares that it is an unfair trade practice to grade diamonds using Gemological Institute of America (GIA) grading terminology while applying alternative standards that overgrade the diamonds. It insists that suppliers be held repsonsible for what they sell and provide full refunds in the event that diamonds re-graded by the GIA are more than one color or one clarity below the grade indicated when sold.

“The Rapaport Group is opposed to the misrepresentation of diamond quality. The over-grading of diamonds is an unfair practice that hurts consumers as it destroys the legitimacy of the diamond trade.

“Retailers who sell over-graded diamonds with GIA terminology and non-GIA grading standards are at great risk. When consumers try to re-sell their diamonds or send them to the GIA for re-grading and discover significant quality differences, there will be hell to pay.

“Consumers must be warned not to trust misleading diamond grading reports and those that sell them. Suppliers must be held responsible for the quaity of the diamonds they sell. The diamond trade must prioritize the protection of consumers above profits,” said Martin Rapaport, Chairman of the Rapaport Group.
