NEW YORK, NY — GHI Gemological Laboratory, a consumer-centric lab specializing in the identification and evaluation of loose white diamonds and white diamond jewelry, announced that its diamond reports will be listed on the industry’s largest diamond platform, RapNet. This development is the latest expansion of GHI’s presence in the marketplace. Diamonds with GHI reports have been available since 2015 in U.S. retail stores and online.

In addition to the information available soon through RapNet’s view and report check functions, GHI digital diamond report listings will link to high-resolution, color diamond images. These images will enhance the buying/selling interaction by providing greater transparency in clarity grading, observations and diamond identification.

GHI also issues cut grade reports to highlight premium round and princess cut diamonds, with ideal as the superior grade. These reports, and diamond and hearts & arrows diamond reports, are available in both print and digital formats. Additionally, GHI issues reports for diamond jewelry.

For consumers, GHI will soon release an enhanced version of its digital report, with features designed to make gemological data easily understandable. The lab’s growing collection of consumer-focused resources includes “All About Diamonds” store displays, printed guides, an online diamond glossary, and a direct email connection to lab staff, “Ask a Gemologist.” Consumers can also check issued report numbers and view sample reports at ghigemlab.com.

“At GHI, we continuously consider how we can support each level of the industry chain,” says Deborah Jakubovic, executive manager of GHI. “What do wholesalers and retailers need to know to meet the needs of their customers? How can we help them communicate? And how can we help consumers feel comfortable about their purchases?”

Jakubovic added, “Our mission is, of course, to provide expert, objective reports. However, the work of a modern gem lab goes far beyond the typical four ‘C’s. People rely on us for skillful identification, deep gemological knowledge and our ability to cut through clutter — to create clarity of information for everyone in the purchase process. As part of RapNet, we plan to bring that clarity to a broader audience than ever before.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
