This store has a very distinctive feature.

De Beers Diamond Jewellers has opened a flagship U.S. store on Madison Avenue in New York.

The company previously had a retail location on Fifth Avenue in New York, Rapaport News reports.

De Beers Diamond Jewellers, a joint venture between The De Beers Group of Cos. and Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), has four U.S. stores in all.

François Delage, CEO of De Beers Diamond Jewellers, talks about the Madison Avenue store in the Bloomberg video below.

A distinctive feature of the store is that it displays rough diamonds. 

“To have a beautiful polished diamond, you have to start with a beautiful rough, and this is really where lies our expertise, and we wanted our clients and potential clients to be able to experience what it is to touch and feel a beautiful rough,” Delage said.

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.”
