(PRESS RELEASE) Christopher Designs announces the appointment of Katherine (Katie) Hamian as the new director of marketing. Hamian will oversee creative for Christopher Designs including brand image, social media and marketing campaigns. She is also responsible for developing modern and innovative marketing strategies for an ever-changing market in an extremely challenging landscape.

“It’s no secret that joining a jewelry brand during a worldwide pandemic and social crisis is no easy task. However, I felt up to the challenge knowing we have an amazing team and quality product at a great value to offer our existing and future clients. Once our office closed in March, our team actually began working closer than before. Even with our own personal challenges, we forged ahead knowing that our common goal was to be a resource and support system for our retail partners. We wanted to communicate that we’re all in this together, so we made clear, consistent and compassionate communication a top priority,” shared Hamian.

Christopher Designs is designed and produced in New York City, so Hamian is confident knowing that they have complete control over their production timeline when it’s time to start up again.

“If there’s one positive thing that’s come out of this, it’s why I love the jewelry industry. Jewelry has an amazing ability to spread love and happiness by playing a small part in life’s special moments. That’s something that will never change,” continued Hamian.

Christopher Slowinski, president and CEO of Christopher Designs adds, “We are thrilled Katie has joined our team. Her energy and market insights are invaluable, and just what our brand needs to endure this difficult time.”


Hamian, a proven industry veteran, has several new initiatives in the pipeline to be introduced in the coming months. In the meantime, she has revamped the brand’s social media platform with additional updates to come.

Hamian has spent nearly a decade in the fine jewelry industry having previously worked at esteemed diamond and jewelry houses including Nader Kash International and Beny Sofer Incorporated.

Hamian’s position is effective immediately and can be reached at [email protected].



Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
