(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 | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
