Company says rough demand is stable.

De Beers reported diamond sales of $560 million for the month of June, the least the diamond producer has sold since January, Bloomberg reports. The previous offering was $636 million, the article says, noting that sales are typically slower in the second half of the year. In a statement to the business news outlet, outgoing De Beers CEO Philippe Mellier said: “Sales in the fifth cycle of the year were somewhat lower than in the fourth cycle, in line with our expectations and typical seasonal demand patterns. Rough-diamond demand and polished-diamond prices remain stable, reflecting steady consumer demand, but we maintain a cautious outlook.”

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.”
