It stopped production at one mine.

 Gem Diamonds Ltd. is calling it quits for now at a mine that focuses on lower-price diamonds.

The company cited a weak market for these types of diamond as the reason for the decision, Bloomberg reports.

The mine, called Ghaghoo, is located in Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

Over the past two years, prices for the diamonds have fallen by more than 30 percent, according to Bloomberg.

The news agency says the London-based company plans to keep the mine closed “until profitability is more feasible.”

The diamond market has been negatively affected by relatively weak demand from India, along with oversupply, Bloomberg notes.

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.”
