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.

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
