The World Diamond Council (WDC) extends its sincere and heartfelt condolences to the victims of the horrific attacks which took place at Zaventem Airport and the Maelbeek metro station in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday, March 22.

“We are devastated by these horrific acts of terrorism,” says Edward Asscher, president of the World Diamond Council. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and their relatives. On behalf of our global membership, we send our sincere condolences to our partners from the Belgian diamond business and our friends at the European Union headquarters with whom we work closely on the Kimberley Process, and to all who are impacted by these awful events.”

The Zaventem Airport in Brussels is a key transportation hub for the diamond industry in Europe.

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.”
