It’s something to ponder in light of an emerging trend in China.

With China’s share of diamond consumption in total global sales expected to increase to 20-25 percent in the next 10 years, it’s not just women whose taste for fine jewelry is increasing, as Forbes writes. The article says that men are also growing their appetite for diamonds, with 67 percent of men in China between the ages of 30-44 expressing their desire for them, according to a De Beers survey. The mining company is even pushing a new “his and hers” concept that encourages women to find a male wedding band that matches hers.

Which begs the question: Could such a marketing concept resonate here in America? Do American men belonging to Generations X and Y even want diamonds as much as their Chinese counterparts? We’ll see how stingy time is with those answers.

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.
