(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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
