She will emphasize training and education
The Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) has appointed Barbara Wheat (pictured, right) executive vice president.
Wheat previously served as executive director of the International Colored Gemstone Association and as adviser on international relations for the Thai Gem and Jewelry Traders Association.
In a statement, Wheat said she will emphasize training and education about natural color diamonds as well as develop new point-of-sale brochures that explain them to consumers.
In November, Gino Di Geso stepped down as group director.
