“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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
