(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.

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
