(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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
