(Press Release) NEW YORK – Wedding ring manufacturer Benchmark announces that it is the exclusive jewelry partner for The Knot Dream Wedding between Washington Mystics player, 2015 WNBA MVP and Olympic gold medalist Elena Delle Done and fiancé Amanda Clifton.

The Knot first broke the news earlier this year that the couple had been chosen to be the recipients of this year’s Dream Wedding. This will be the first same-sex couple to receive The Knot Dream Wedding.

“We are thrilled to partner with The Knot for The Knot Dream Wedding,” said A.J. Tosyali, president of Benchmark. “This wedding is so special. Not only have we always believed that ‘love is love,’ but we immediately fell in love with Elena and Amanda as we started to create the perfect symbols for their wedding. Like most millennial couples they wanted some personalized elements, so each ring will have meaningful symbols, unique to the couple, incorporated into the design.”

Jennifer Garrett, executive vice president, national enterprise, XO Group Inc., said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to bring Benchmark on as the exclusive jewelry partner for The Knot Dream Wedding. As a symbol of commitment and devotion, we’re excited to see how Benchmark and their expert craftsmen bring Elana and Amanda’s love and unique personalities into the designs of their wedding bands.”

The promotion of the couple’s nuptials, featuring the Benchmark wedding rings, will begin mid-August 2017 and end mid-November. Final coverage will run in the Spring 2018 issue of The Knot. Benchmark will be prominently featured in a sweepstakes, where one lucky entrant will win a Benchmark ring, in a documentary video that will showcase the rings, and in social media posts.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
