“This will be a highly thought-provoking discussion about a key topic that needs to be at the top of the industry agenda in the New Year – the Future of Diamonds,” said Paola De Luca, who will be the “disruptive” co-moderator of the debate.

The Future of Diamonds discussion will center on the future positioning of synthetic diamonds in the jewelry market; the marketing of “perfection”, or rarity, and “imperfection” of diamonds, such as fluorescence and diamonds with notable inclusions, such as “salt-and-pepper” diamonds.

The Future of Diamonds discussion will take place during a period of great upheaval for the global marketing of diamond jewelry amid heightened competition in luxury, and confusion over the place that laboratory-grown diamonds will have in the trade.

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.
