It’s part of the Nirav Modi empire.

A. Jaffe, a jewelry supplier that is among the holdings of jeweler Nirav Modi, is being sold for $5.2 million, Rapaport News reports.

The buyer is Paramount Jewels.

A. Jaffe was part of a U.S. Bankruptcy Court filing in February. Modi’s Firestar Diamond Inc. and Fantasy Inc. were also included.

The bankruptcy filing came amid news that Modi was being investigated by Indian authorities in connection with a massive bank fraud case.

In May, Paramount Gems, an affiliate of Paramount Jewels, had been set to purchase A. Jaffe after placing the winning bid of $8 million, but the deal was canceled. A judge had delayed that deal, saying he needed more information about the value of A. Jaffe and the firm’s relationship with Modi, Rapaport explains.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
