(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



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.”
