(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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
