(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 | 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.”
