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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
