New York, NY – The United States Jewelry Council (USJC) is hosting a jewelry industry summit on the topic of undisclosed lab-grown diamonds. The roundtable discussion will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at the Waldorf Astoria New York, Starlight Roof. The “Undisclosed Lab-Grown Diamonds: Detection and Disclosure Discussion” will address a topic that faces the jewelry industry on a national and global scale.

Online event registration is available here.

Those wishing to attend should register early as space is limited. A continental breakfast and lunch will be served. Signet Jewelers is sponsoring the event. In addition to the 13 U.S.-based jewelry trade associations that are members of the U.S. Jewelry Council, the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association also support the event.

“The success of the US jewelry industry depends on consumer confidence in the products our members sell,” says Ronnie VanderLinden, Chair of the USJC & President of the DMIA. “The U.S. Jewelry Council believes one way for the jewelry industry to inspire consumer confidence is through the discussion of important topics such as the detection and disclosure of undisclosed, lab-grown diamonds.”

Anyone interested in this pressing topic is invited to join the discussion which will include guest speakers from gemological laboratories, producers, manufacturers and retail. They will address opportunities to increase transparency around the continuous improvement in the integrity of the global jewelry supply chain, tools for jewelers and suppliers on how to detect and disclose Lab-Grown Diamonds, and how partnerships can make a positive impact on this important issue. The roundtable meeting aims to provide an opportunity for the jewelry industry to openly discuss and address this important topic.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
