(PRESS RELEASE) ALROSA has launched a digital tender for special size rough diamonds (over 10.8 carats). It allows customers to purchase stones despite current traveling restrictions imposed between countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The auction takes place between March 23 and April 6.

Due to the global situation, the company decided to cancel the upcoming special size auctions, simultaneously offering customers an opportunity to take part in a digital tender.

Digital tender is based on the technology that provides customers with a full digital scan of each rough diamond for detailed analysis. This allows buyers to thoroughly evaluate the rough and make informed purchasing decisions based on comprehensive data without visiting the company’s office.

“Health of our employees and customers is of prime importance to us. Therefore, we have decided to cancel the upcoming auctions and shorten those already in progress. ALROSA is in constant contact with customers from various countries and considers different supporting measures. One of the opportunities is a digital tender. It will not replace the traditional trading model, but becomes a solution for those who are ready to work remotely right now. We will provide all the necessary information about our rough diamonds and will negotiate with customers on payment terms and logistics,” said Evgeny Agureev, deputy CEO of ALROSA.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
