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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
