(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.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
