Forevermark, the diamond brand from The De Beers Group of Cos., has passed 2,000 retail doors globally. 

The brand hit the milestone with the opening of the Zen Diamond Anatolium store in the city of Bursa in Turkey, according to a press release.

Forevermark is now available in 25 markets worldwide.

The release notes that De Beers continues to invest substantially in Forevermark, with $85 million spent on the brand’s consumer-facing marketing activities in 2016.

  • The opening of the 2,000th Forevermark retail door follows a 2016 that included:
  • A 14 percent increase in door numbers.
  • Expansion into three new markets – Hungary, South Korea and Thailand.

“A 21 percent year-on-year increase in inscription numbers,” said Stephen Lussier, CEO of Forevermark. “Opening our 2,000th global retail door around eight years after launching the brand is an amazing achievement. We will continue to invest significantly in the brand to support its fast growth.”

Lussier added: “In 2017 we will inscribe our two millionth Forevermark diamond, highlighting just how strong demand is for diamond jewelry that’s not only beautiful and individual, but also responsibly sourced. Meanwhile, we will also expand further through our licensee model in Western Europe and Asia in 2017, meaning that the Forevermark promise will reach even more consumers around the world.”

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.”
