(IDEX Online News) – Price of round diamonds fluctuated during the month, items sized 1.5 carats to 4 carats showing improvements. Goods sized between 0.30- 0.44-carats were mostly down in the SI1 and better clarity range. Items in the 1.00-1.24-carat range showed a few positive changes, but were largely static. There was almost no price movement in items sized 4 carats to 5 carats.

There was not much movement in fancy goods during the month. Items in the 1.00-1.24-carat category showed increases of as much as 4 percent in the better quality stones. Items sized 1.5-2.99 carats showed localized rises with some widespread price decreases. Price changes in the 4-carat to 5-carat goods were very limited.
  
Following are some of the main changes in this month’s IDEX Online Diamond Price Report.

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.
