“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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
