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

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.”
