(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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
