(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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
