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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
