(PRESS RELEASE) MUMBAI, INDIA — The International Gemological Institute (IGI) will host the digital edition of the D Show at the Grand Hyatt, Goa from March 4 – 6, 2021 with a vast array of diamond design creations slated to appear. The three-day event promises India’s leading jewelry manufacturers and retailers opportunities to interact and explore new commercial ventures. As digital platforms continue to transform the way business is conducted, the Institute is excited to host this conference, which will allow jewelers to showcase their stellar collections online.

“This year marks the 10th D show and IGI is proud to announce the dual approach of virtual and in-person components,” remarked IGI CEO Roland Lorie. “A digital wave is indisputably overtaking every aspect of the jewelry business — from marketing to certification — and the Institute continues to lead the way.”

In addition to 32 distinguished manufacturers, the D Show is set to host over 100 retailers with exclusive pieces on display. From light-weight jewelry to intricate and ornate wedding creations, the show has designs specially curated for individual categories to address evolving consumer demand.

Given the limitations for in-person events, the Institute developed a platform for manufacturers to showcase their works of art for all attendees. The union of a conventional meeting and remote attendance is a beneficial method to help the participants access beautiful designs and view the details of each creation. Notably, participants may further examine each jewelry piece and verify its specifics via an application throughout the year.

“Our industry is witnessing a change like never before as digital forces are modernizing the way we operate, which makes innovation in this era crucial,” said President and Managing Director of IGI India Tehmasp Printer. “With this year’s Digital D Show, IGI intends to bring the best of technology, design and business possibilities to the sector.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
