(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 Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
