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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
