Rapaport to sponsor four antique jewelry shows

January 06, 2014

Naples, Fla.--The Rapaport Group will be sponsoring four fairs organized by U.S. Antique Shows in 2014.

The sponsored shows will be the Original Miami Beach Antique Show, the Los Angeles Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show and the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show.

Show dates can be found on the U.S. Antique Shows website.

Rapaport also will host booths at the Miami and Las Vegas shows, and will be selling a large assortment of closeout, estate and signed jewelry at the Miami show.

U.S. Antique Shows said, “Rapaport’s jewelry trading platform and brokerage services provide an efficient platform for companies to trade jewelry, granting buyers access to jewelry from around the U.S. and providing suppliers with the ability to sell jewelry to a large buyer base.”

Dan Darby, show director of U.S. Antique Shows and vice president of GLM, which owns and organizes the shows, said Rapaport’s “knowledge and insight into the diamond and jewelry industries is an important resource for our shows’ exhibitors and buyers.”

Emerald Expositions, parent company of National Jeweler as well as the Couture and JA New York shows, is in the process of acquiring GLM in a $335 million deal announced in December.

Established in 1976, the Rapaport Group is an international network of companies that includes Diamonds.net and Rapaport Magazine as well as research and marketing services, global rough and polished diamond tenders and fair trade development.
