(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 | 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.”
