The Natural Color Diamond Association has announced the results of its 2017 board of directors election.

Alan Bronstein of Aurora Gems was elected president of NCDIA. Newly elected board member Jose Batista of Rio Diamond Corp. was elected vice president. Breanne Wittrock, a current member of the board, was re-elected as vice president. Scott West of LJ West, also a current member of the board, was elected secretary and treasurer.

Directors of the 2017 NCDIA board include, Jordan Fine of JFine Inc., Sean Moore of Borsheims and Marc Solomon of Solomon’s Jewelers.

The directors-elect, who will take office in January 2017, will participate in board meetings through the end of the year.

Bronstein said, “I am honored to be selected as the new President of Natural Color Diamond Association. It is clear that the focus for growth in our organization, our industry and the natural diamond world we are passionate about, is the education of the public, to liberate prejudices and conditioned notions of beauty and desire.”

NCDIA recognized Jeffrey Post of Gem Platinum for his years of service as a member of the board. He has served as president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.

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.”
