(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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
