(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 Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family.

That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm.
