(PRESS RELEASE) HONG KONG – New Diamond Technology (NDT) will showcase its 10.06 carat, SI Clarity HPHT, octagonal step cut Fancy Intense Yellow diamond at September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair (booth3B18, AWE Hall 3).

“This is the only one officially known Fancy Intense Yellow of 10 carat lab-grown diamond,” said NDT President Tamazi Khikhinashvili.

Commenting IGI Worldwide co-CEO Marc Brauner: “This NDT 10.06 carat stone is unique in all aspects, and that the technology behind the processes synthesizing such stones are rapidly and significantly advancing. The stone’s intense yellow color and breath-taking brilliance will ensure it a prominent place among the pioneers of man-made diamond creation.”  The NDT’s new conception was certified in Antwerp — and with its beauty captured — by International Gemological Institute (IGI).

Mr Khikhinashvili said man-made diamond demand is growing fast as buyers are concerned about the environmental impact of its mining and seek gems untainted by conflict zones.

This is evident at jewelry shows in Las Vegas, Basel, Dubai and Hong Kong where customers favor innovations as value added.  Historic milestones in diamond development generate positive attention based on these social concerns.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
