They hint at the possibility of more.

Merlin Diamonds announced the discovery of two pink diamonds — one 0.039-carat and one 0.025-carat — at the Merlin diamond mine in the Northern Territory, Australia. 

The find is in addition to the recovery of a pink diamond of 0.7 carats announced in the company’s March 2017 quarterly report.

The company said in a statement that it is “encouraged by these discoveries that indicate the possibility of further pink diamonds at the Merlin diamond mine.”

The mine, the company’s flagship project, undertook pilot production in 2013. It is well-known for producing “large, high clarity, super white, and high value diamonds,” according to Merlin.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
