WFDB Enters Into Partnership With Natural Diamond Council

World Federation of Diamond Bourses to join Natural Diamond Council in effort to support the natural diamond industry.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Recognizing increased consumer demand as being critical to the prosperity of the natural diamond industry, the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) has entered into a partnership with the Natural Diamond Council (NDC) to support the growth of the industry.

As well as making an initial financial investment, the WFDB will work together with the NDC to identify ways in which the values of natural diamonds can reach more consumers more frequently, through the direct reach of the WFDB, its member bourses, and their individual members.

According to WFDB President Yoram Dvash, the WFDB greatly values the unique role of the NDC in bringing the story of natural diamonds to consumers. “Today’s consumers have more choices than ever before and are heavily influenced by social media and digital platforms. It is crucial to present the natural diamond industry in a creative and authentic way. We believe that the NDC is successfully doing just that, and we want to support this very important work,” said Dvash.

WFDB Vice President Moshe Salem said, “We believe that more stakeholders need to come together to invest strategically in the industry. This will help ensure the strength of the industry and will protect the millions of livelihoods that depend upon them, and especially the regions of the world for whom natural diamonds provide the resources for education, health and social infrastructure.”

Natural Diamond Council CEO David Kellie said, “We are very pleased to partner with the WFDB, which represents diamond traders all over the world. We believe that together we can find many ways to collaborate that will benefit the industry as a whole. Collectively we see considerable growth opportunities ahead, and we will redouble efforts to inspire and move consumers.”




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!”
