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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
