(Press Release)
ANTWERP – The Antwerp diamond industry has launched a new campaign that aims to reinvigorate the city’s reputation as diamond capital of the world, both at home and abroad.

The new slogan “Diamonds and Antwerp, it’s in our DNA” recognizes more than five centuries in which the city has been synonymous with diamonds, highlighted by a festive diamond-themed period, starting in October of 2017 and organized by the City of Antwerp. “Diamonds & Antwerp, it’s in our DNA” intends to capture the story of diamonds and Antwerp. Because the industry has been located in the city for more than 550 years, it’s part of the DNA of the city, just as the city is part of the DNA of the diamond industry.

Antwerp’s Mayor Bart De Wever and Antwerp World Diamond Centre CEO Ari Epstein inaugurated the new campaign. A big, lively “tableau vivant” featuring 16 industry representatives will brighten up the diamond district in the coming months.

“The diamond industry is inherent to the city of Antwerp and is one of the main reasons for tourists to visit Antwerp,” says Margaux Donckier. “No other city in the world accommodates such a trade center, and this is what makes Antwerp’s diamond industry and city stand out. With this campaign and the upcoming Diamond Year, the city as well as the diamond industry wants to highlight this unique strength. ‘Diamonds & Antwerp, it’s in our DNA’ is a campaign that all Antwerpians can support by signing the DNA charter and becoming an ambassador of the city and her diamond industry.”

The campaign has already launched in Antwerp and will also be promoted internationally beginning in September of this year.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
