The YD group was founded four years ago and has since grown to encompass hundreds of members from all parts of the world. The meeting yesterday was attended by over 100 members, many of whom spoke about their interest in becoming more active in the WFDB institutions and to increase their influence in its institutions.

The Young Diamantaires members are extremely active, working through committees and on social media. They recently launched a fundraising campaign on Go Fund Me to build a library and kitchen at the Renaissance High School in Messina, South Africa, which they visited last September.

Yoram Dvash expressed his appreciation for the energies and good work of the Young Diamantaires group. He said, “You are the next generation of diamond leaders, and the WFDB greatly values your contribution to the world diamond industry. I hope to work with you more closely in the future. I want to congratulate Rami on the initiative of creating the Young Diamantaires group.”

Rami Baron said, “This meeting is a culmination of four years, gently guiding an inspirational group of Young Diamantaires who have a demonstrated a passion to improve their industry and assist those who are less fortunate. The WFDB, under the leadership of Yoram Dvash, has shown through this inaugural meeting that they are keen to hear the ideas and goals of this next generation and are willing to give them their support.”

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.
