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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
