(PRESS RELEASE) GIA’s Melee Analysis Service now has the capability to analyze fancy-shaped melee diamonds. This service was first created in 2016 for round brilliant melee diamonds to address concerns about laboratory-grown and treated diamonds being mixed into parcels of melee. The automated system is now expanded to analyze and sort melee-size diamonds that are fancy-shaped.

The GIA Melee Analysis Service separates natural diamonds from laboratory-grown and potentially HPHT treated natural diamonds for round and fancy-shaped melee along with identifying any simulants. For round melee only, the screened diamonds can be sorted by color range for an additional charge. Clients can also specify a size range to sort for their round melee parcel. Once sorted, the melee will be sealed in secure packaging and retuned.

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.”
