(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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
