Company claims more consistency with “very tight technological approach.”

In February, De Beers’ International Institute of Diamond Grading and Research (IIDGR) launched a diamond grading program, entering “what arguably is the most contentious space in the diamond distribution chain where concerns have grown over grading consistency and standards, or lack thereof, in the past few years,” Rapaport writes. Speaking with the diamond industry news outlet, IIDGR President Jonathan Kendall claimed that the grading program offers greater accuracy and consistency thanks to its “very tight technological approach to grading in which there is a significant human involvement.” He elaborates:

“Our approach also ensures that a grader cannot trace the goods back to a certain client, which might introduce bias in the grading. It takes time and we want to make sure that we don’t stretch ourselves. The key thing for us is to deliver what we promise and the service meets the industry’s requirements. We’re not looking for ridiculous growth. We want to build a solid base and continue to develop over a number of years.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
