(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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
