(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.

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.”
