(IDEX Online News) – Price of round diamonds fluctuated during the month, somewhat checking the long-running pattern of downward price movements. Items in the 0.23-0.29 carat category showed upward movement, with price rises of up to almost 6 percent. Items in the 1.00-1.24 carat range showed hardly any movement.

Goods in the 3.00-3.99 carat category, showed widespread downward movement, but did not exceed an approximately 3-percent decrease.  

The picture overall for fancy shapes, showed more downward movement than has recently been the case.

Decreases in price of up to 3 percent or 4 percent, occurred in goods of 1.00-1.24-2.99 carats and 4.00-4.99-carats. Price movement in items sized 5 carats saw positive changes.

Following are some of the main changes in this month’s IDEX Online Diamond Price Report.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
