The schedule of the CIBJO Congress includes a series of meetings of different working groups, called sectors and commissions, each of which focuses on a different sector or field of interest in the jewelry industry. The digital binder includes the agendas and documentation related to each of their sessions, as well as those sessions that encompass the entire CIBJO membership.

The congress will take place at the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok Nov. 5-7, with pre-congress meetings starting on Nov. 2. On Nov. 4, the World Ruby Forum will take place at the same venue.

Serving as the official venue for the meeting of the CIBJO Assembly of Delegates, the CIBJO Congress gathers the members of national jewelry and gemstone associations from more than 40 countries and representatives of many of the industry’s most important commercial bodies. During the event, the organization’s Diamond, Coloured Stones, Pearl, Coral, Precious Metals and Gemmological Blue Books, which are the industry’s most widely accepted directories of uniform grading standards and nomenclature, are discussed and updated.

The CIBJO Congress is being hosted by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) and the Gem and Jewellery Institute of Thailand (GIT), both of which fall under the jurisdiction of the Thai Ministry of Commerce.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
