(Press Release)
De Beers has debuted its High Jewelry collection during the 2016 Paris Couture week.

Inspired by the winding course of the Thames River and the silhouettes of the surrounding city, the collection recalls a voyage through London, capturing five landmarks it passes in diamond form – Albert Bridge, Battersea Light, Elizabeth Tower, London Eye and the Thames Path.

“We are proud to call London our home and to introduce our first collection designed as a tribute to our brand’s founding city. These unique pieces have been created to encapsulate the magical light that dances on these iconic landmarks and reflects on the majestic Thames, bringing to life the unique spirit of London. The five sets showcase exceptional, fluid craftsmanship to reflect the water and the light through the beautiful combination of diamond cuts and skillful jewelry techniques,” says François Delage, CEO of De Beers Diamonds Jewelers.

De Beers worked with longstanding collaborator Mary McCartney to capture the spirit of London and the De Beers woman. McCartney explores the chosen landmarks, presenting them in five atmospheric yet intimate photographic diptychs, the double-exposure technique mirroring the craftsmanship of the diamonds.

Alongside the London by De Beers pieces, De Beers presented a selection of solitaire diamonds titled “1888 White Master Diamonds.” The diamonds were selected by the president of the De Beers Institute of Diamonds, with the collection showcasing rare “white” diamonds of more than 10 carats, including M to X color diamonds unique to De Beers, alongside more classical whites such as a 17.23 carat D Colour Pear pendant.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
