(Press Release) The Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America and the U.S. Kimberley Process Authority announced their plan to conduct a joint research project to study the trade in rough diamonds in the U.S.

The study will educate the members of both associations about the activity and nature of U.S. imports and exports of rough diamonds. The plan is to better serve industry by gathering hard data about the trade in rough diamonds to better understand the market forces driving rough diamond imports and exports. 

The scope of the research will include information about market trends, valuation, import and export flows as well as source. 

The research project will be conducted by Dr. Martin Hochbaum and Cecilia Gardner, directors of the USKPA, along with Jeffrey Fischer, representing DMIA.

“Cooperation from the rough diamond industry to assist in this research project will be key to its success”, said Ronnie Vander Linden, president of DMIA. “All members of DMIA are urged to cooperate when contacted by the research team.”

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.”
