(Press Release)
Exactly two weeks before the start of the 37th World Diamond Congress, the biennial meeting of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association (IDMA), organizers are putting the final touches on the meeting schedule. Among the issues to be discussed at the Congress is the work and approach of the diamond producers, with leading representatives invited to address the Congress.

The Congress, to take place in Dubai from May 16-19, will address the issue of "Transparency, Responsibility, Sustainability in Producing Countries” on the morning of May 19, with representatives of global producers participating in a panel discussion.

"We are expecting delegates from the major diamond-producing companies and countries to take part," says WFDB President Ernie Blom. "They will present their views on the state of the market and their supply strategies, as well as other subjects. For the first time at a World Diamond Congress, we are introducing a panel element with the aim of encouraging attendees to take part. This should lead to some fascinating exchanges, with highly relevant questions from the floor to the panelists. Rough diamond purchases have been encouragingly strong in the first months of 2016, and I am sure this will be one of the issues that the producers will address and on which they will face questions from the audience.”

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.
