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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
