Price nearly doubled the previous record for the sale of a green diamond.

Record-breaking auction sales are continuing unabated as the 5.03-carat “Aurora Green” diamond set two world records this week after Christie’s sold it for $16.8 million ($3.3 million per carat), Forbes writes. The article says that the diamond – “with VS2 clarity mounted on a gold ring surrounded by circular-cut pink diamonds” – was purchased by Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook Jewellry. The previous world record for the sale of a green diamond was $8.6 million at $1.5 million per carat.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
