(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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
