Forevermark is now available in 25 markets.

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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
