(PRESS RELEASE) LAFAYETTE, LA  – Stuller, Inc. announces a new strategic service arrangement with GIA (Gemological Institute of America) by offering GIA’S Melee Analysis Service inside its global headquarters in Lafayette, Louisiana. Melee used at Stuller’s facility will be screened on-site by GIA staff independently operating the GIA-owned analytical instrumentation in a dedicated, secured space.

“GIA is the most trusted gemological authority in the industry,” says Stanley Zale, vice president of diamonds and gemstones procurement. “Therefore there is no one better than GIA for Stuller to rely on to deliver on our commitment to correctly represent the product we are selling.”

“Locating our service within Stuller’s premises allows GIA to rapidly and efficiently analyze a higher volume of melee diamonds, helping to protect the consumer and ensure their confidence in the most prevalent stones in the market,” said Thomas M. Moses, GIA executive vice president of laboratory and research. 

The GIA Melee Analysis Service, launched in December 2016, applies GIA’s decades of research into natural, treated and synthetic diamonds to quickly and accurately separate natural, untreated diamonds from simulants, synthetics and HPHT treated natural diamonds, and sorts the natural, untreated diamonds by color range. It screens round, D-to-Z color melee from 0.9mm to 4.0mm. 

“This commitment includes adherence to GIA grading standards, as well as giving our customers the highest possible level of assurance that we are accurately describing all diamonds being sold,” says Zale.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
