(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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
