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.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
