(press release) The Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) will be presenting an educational seminar – and an evening event the next day – at the JCK Show in Las Vegas, taking place from June 1-4, 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

The seminar takes place June 1, from 1:15-2:00 pm, on the Showcase Stage, Bayside, Level One. It is entitled, “The Virtues of Natural Diamonds and Natural Color Diamonds,” and it features top experts from the industry. Panelists will discuss how retailers can explain the positive reasons why natural diamonds should be the first choice of consumers. 

“Positive reasons include the passion, the tradition and symbolism, and the role of qualified labs in protecting the trade and their clients,” says Alan Bronstein, president of NCDIA. “Other good reasons include the increasing transparency in the supply chain, and the societal benefits to people who work at diamond mines as well as the countless thousands who are employed around the world in the $82 billion gem and jewelry industry.” 

The panel will also cover the benefits of natural diamond ownership in terms of “intrinsic value, infinite options, and the opportunity to bequeath the gems to heirs,” says Bronstein.

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.”
