(Press Release)
MUMBAI, INDIA – The Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) of India expresses its solidarity with the Belgium citizens, especially the diamond industry of Belgium, who were at the receiving end of the terrorist attack. The Indian diamond industry is dismayed with the fact that the terrorist attacks in Brussels on Tuesday claimed many innocent lives and injured several people.

“We are extremely shocked by the dastardly terrorist act at the airport of Belgium,” says GJEPC Chairman Mr. Praveenshankar Pandya. “We express our condolences to the excellent people of Belgium who were not only compassionate but also extremely accommodative, which has been felt by us, the Indian Diamond community, over several decades. At this time of anguish, we stand with the fellow citizens and diamond community of Belgium.”

Belgium is one of the largest diamond trading hubs in the world. A huge diaspora of the Indian diamond fraternity is settled in Belgium and operates out of their offices based there. We are happy to note that the diamond community at Belgium is safe and hope that everyone in the community continues to remain safe and sound.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
