(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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
