Rapaport Melee and Single Stones Auctions are similar in format to silent auctions and tenders, with viewing held over a five to eight day period. Bidders may schedule appointments to view the lots and must submit sealed bids by the close of auction. Once the auction is closed, sellers have one business day to approve or reject the highest bids. Winning bidders are invoiced and have three business days to make payment.
To Participate as a Bidder
Melee and Single Stone auctions are open to all qualified members of the diamond trade.
