(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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
