(PRESS RELEASE) ANTWERP, BELGIUM – The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) has congratulated India’s Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) on becoming a full member of the global diamond organization.

The GJEPC’s Annual General Meeting in Mumbai approved changes in its code of ethics necessary to complete the process of joining the GJEPC.

“I am delighted that the GJEPC has become our first non-bourse member,” said WFDB President Ernie Blom. “India is a very important part of the global diamond industry, and the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council is a major force in promoting the country’s trade.

“We look forward to welcoming other industry players into the WFDB. Such bodies will provide us with important input regarding the diamond and jewellery trade from their perspective, and they will be able to observe our operations from within at our meetings. Our industry is undergoing continuous change, and that makes it vital for bodies from across the diamond pipeline to join the WFDB as it leads our trade forward.”

Blom continued: “I would like to take this opportunity to wish all members of the diamond and jewellery business around the world a happy, successful and prosperous 2017. I also look forward to greeting colleagues and friends soon at the 2017 Presidents Meeting in Mumbai which takes place from February 5-8.”

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.”
