RAPAPORT Magazine Launches Free iPad App for Consumers

Rapaport Magazine, a monthly international publication specializing in diamonds, gemstones and jewelry, launched its iPad app, which can be downloaded for free from the iTunes Store. With this launch, Rapaport Magazine is now available to consumers. Along with the magazine’s main editorial features, the app will provide exclusive content not available in the print publication, covering topics that matter most to jewelry consumers.

Based in the heart of New York City’s dynamic diamond district, Rapaport Magazine takes you behind the scenes of the glamorous — and sometimes gritty — world of diamonds, gemstones and jewelry. Rapaport Magazine’s app will take you inside the glittering jewelry auctions, introduce you to today’s most talented designers and help you understand diamonds like the experts. With correspondents reporting from all the major diamond centers around the globe, Rapaport Magazine is the diamond authority. The Rapaport Magazine app showcases the in-depth coverage of crucial current issues the magazine’s readers have come to expect, as well as special bonus features that are exclusive to the iPad app.

The October issue takes a look at synthetic diamonds, including the methods used to create them, ways to detect them and how to protect yourself from buying one. There’s also a bridal story about finding a ring that fits your lifestyle. In addition, Rapaport Magazine will introduce you to jewelry designer Donna Distefano, whose eco-friendly stance appeals to those looking for sparkle that is kind to the environment. We’ll also give you a glimpse inside the auction of philanthropist and socialite Brooke Astor’s jewelry and a sneak peek at the Archduke Joseph Diamond going on the block at Christie’s Geneva.
