Brilliant Earth Showroom Opens In Bethesda, MD

(PRESS RELEASE) SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Brilliant Earth, (NASDAQ: BRLT), a leader in ethically sourced bridal and fine jewelry, continues its expansion with the opening of a new showroom in downtown Bethesda, Maryland, its 16th showroom nationwide. The Bethesda showroom will be Brilliant Earth’s second location in the greater D.C. region. Since opening in 2017, the Georgetown location continues to thrive; paving the way for the new Bethesda showroom. The area offers a premium shopping destination, which fits effortlessly with Brilliant Earth’s mission and reputation for delivering a joyous and luxurious shopping experience.

The Bethesda showroom is staffed with knowledgeable jewelry experts trained to provide personalized appointments tailored to each customer’s preferences. Its jewelry experts are highly trained in diamond, gemstone and ring settings, which ensures familiarity with Brilliant Earth’s designs, latest offerings and its foundational mission.

“We are thrilled to open the doors to our showroom in Bethesda and are incredibly proud of the omni-channel and experiential approach that our retail locations deliver to our customers,” said Beth Gerstein, co-founder and CEO of Brilliant Earth. “Our showrooms play an integral role in our growth strategy and provide an opportunity to showcase our unique designs as well as our dedicated and knowledgeable jewelry specialists who are passionate about sharing our mission with our customers. We are committed to bringing transparency, sustainability, compassion and inclusivity to the fine jewelry shopping experience, both in Bethesda and globally through our omni-channel model.”

Located at 4733 Elm Street and spanning 3,000 square feet, downtown Bethesda is centrally located within the city. Accepting both walk-ins and scheduled appointments, Brilliant Earth’s showroom reflects the brand’s original vision: a one-on-one experience that seamlessly integrates with the company’s optimized online experience. In-store consultations are complemented by Brilliant Earth’s online which include virtual appointments, try-on visualization, ring stacking and more.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
