(IDEX Online News) – Price of round diamonds generally continued to fall, extending a long-running pattern. Items in the 0.23-0.29 carat category showed the significant downward movement, with price drops of up to 19 percent. Goods in the 0.90-1.00 carat category also showed widespread downward movment, with falls as much as 16 percent. Items in the 0.30-0.39 carat category, however, showed some upward movement. Some positive changes also took place in goods sized 1.50-1.99 carats, but the previous month’s gains in goods above 5 carats did not recur.

The picture overall was more positive for fancy shapes, as there were more upward price changes. The most positive movement was seen in goods sized between 0.30-0.49 carats, with increases across the board – some as high as 10 percent. Price movement in items sized 5 carats and above saw many positive changes.
 
Following are some of the main changes in this month’s IDEX Online Diamond Price Report.

Wilkerson Paves the Way for the Future

After serving the San Antonio, Texas community for decades, C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers closed its doors earlier this year. Aaron and Mary Peñaloza, the store’s owners, chose Wilkerson to handle their retirement sale. “In the first six days, we did six months’ worth of business,” says Aaron. “In the first three weeks, we did a year’s worth of business.” Mary Peñaloza says Wilkerson’s ability to tailor the sale to their store’s requirements really made it all so much easier. “They are professionals,” she says. “They know what they’re doing. They have a plan, but they will listen to you and adjust that plan to your needs.”
