(Press Release)
RAMAT GAN, Israel – The Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) will be hosting renowned jewelry designer Stephen Webster from the United Kingdom as its Guest of Honor during the upcoming winter edition of the International Diamond Week in Israel, which will be held on the IDE trading floor Feb. 14-18. Webster will be on the stage at the opening ceremony on Feb. 15 and take part in a diamond and jewelry marketing panel discussion in the afternoon.

"I am excited to be coming back to Israel after an absence of more than 20 years, and look forward to taking part in the International Diamond Week in Israel. High quality diamonds are an inedible part of my own jewelry creations, as well as the jewelry of the house of Garrard. I expect to be seeing a lot of those quality diamonds on the exchange floor during my visit,” says Webster, who has received an MBE for his services for training and skills in the British jewelry industry, and recently published his first book "Goldstruck: A Life Shaped By Jewellery."

Israel Diamond Exchange President Yoram Dvash said Webster’s arrival was very welcome. "One of my goals as president is to create much closer relationships with the world’s trendsetting jewelry designers and producers,” Dvash says. “Israel, as the world’s leading specialist in larger fancy shaped diamonds and fancy color diamonds has lots to offer to the top end of the jewelry design and manufacturing market. I am confident that Mr. Webster, who has not visited our country for more than two decades, will be inspired by what he will find on our trading floor during the International Diamond Week in Israel.”

The Israel Diamond Exchange offers accredited and confirmed buyers three free nights in one of the IDWI’s venue hotels in the Ramat Gan Diamond District.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
