(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
