This week the Diamond Dealers Club (DDC) of New York, in conjunction with the Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), greeted more than 60 exhibitors and several hundred buyers at its third India Diamond Week on the DDC’s trading floor in Manhattan. The DDC intends to create trading opportunities in the market by welcoming international diamantaires to trade at the largest bourse in the U.S.

“This has been an incredibly successful show in the past, and (on Monday) we saw not just the regular buyers, but countless new faces as well,” says DDC President Reuven Kaufman. “Coming off of 2015, we see the DDC trade shows as tremendous opportunities for dealers, wholesalers and manufacturers around the world to jumpstart their 2016 business and connect to forge significant business relationships. In this fourth edition of India Diamond Week, we are excited to once again welcome diamantaires from India to our trading floor, in order to create new connections, build on existing relationships, and generate success for our industry.”

The event aims to increase communication between diamantaires and promote business globally. “This is our third time at India Diamond Week,” says Nirav Shah, from Mahendra Brothers. “We came back again and made an appearance so that we can continue the relationships we have created.”

India Diamond Week at the DDC is being held through Jan. 21 at the DDC’s headquarters in the heart of the Diamond District at 580 Fifth Avenue at 47th Street in New York.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
