IGI Provides Sustainable and Secure Way to Purchase Rare & Valuable Argyle Pink Diamonds

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The International Gemological Institute (IGI), has joined forces with John Glajz, a Singapore-based authorized partner of Argyle Pink Diamonds for nearly 25 years, to certify these gems, which are some of the rarest in the world, creating The Collector’s Edition: An Exclusive Selection of Argyle Pink Diamonds. As the Australian mine that produces the majority of the diamonds is slated to close in 2020, this collection is likely to become more valuable.

IGI grades each diamond attesting to the origin, natural aspect, color and clarity. By using the combination of the fluorescence in ultraviolet light, typical inclusions and the type of graining, IGI can determine with good precision that these diamonds originate from the Argyle mine. In order to maintain a verified chain of custody, the diamonds are then securely sealed by IGI, which is an independent third party, thus ensuring ultimate customer protection.

“To date, IGI has delivered more than 1,000 of these reports and we look forward to continuing to provide a sustainable and secure way for consumers to purchase these diamonds with the utmost confidence,” said IGI Antwerp, MD Deborah Pienica.

With a verified Argyle origin and the impending closure of the mine, The Collector’s Edition presents an innovative and unique opportunity to own a curated selection of these rare diamonds. To date, the market response to this collection has been overwhelming as it presents an attainable way for consumers to purchase Argyle Pink Diamonds.

“We embarked with IGI on this project in order to preserve the legacy of these rare diamonds beyond their mined life,” said John Glajz. “Despite the Australian mine closing in 2020, the limited supply release will become a treasured collectible. As such, I look forward to working with IGI for the long-term so that The Collector’s Edition remains the leader in marketing the provenance of this valuable product.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
