(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

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
