(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 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.”
