“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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
