(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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
