They’ll launch NCDIA Asia.

(Press Release) The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (AIGS) announced a cooperation with the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) in launching NCDIA Asia, which will be located at the Jewelry Trade Center in Bangkok. AIGS will be the natural colored diamond hub in Asia serving as a base for expanding activities for current NCDIA members, attracting new members, as well as broadening and strengthening the appreciation and understanding of natural colored diamonds to consumers in the region.

In a statement from NCDIA, President Alan Bronstein said, “NCDIA is pleased to announce that we are expanding our outreach through affiliation with the AIGS to form NCDIA Asia. Through this collaboration, AIGS will be our hub in Asia for expanding our education and relationships with wholesalers, retailers and consumers.”

AIGS President Barbara Wheat, who will head up NCDIA Asia, is the former Executive Vice President of NCDIA and is well prepared to lead the initiative.

“AIGS looks forward to providing support for NCDIA in promoting natural colored diamonds in Asia, where consumers are already showing keen interest throughout the region. NCDIA’s educational efforts are in line with AIGS’s plans for increasing our work with natural colored diamonds,” Wheat said.

NCDIA members will be receiving information on how NCDIA Asia will support them in the region, as well as keeping them informed about industry events.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
