With the aim to educate the public on the positive stories behind diamonds, entrants are asked to submit a video (maximum 60 seconds) of their proposal story and what their diamond means to them. Videos will be judged by digital media influencers @thediamondsgirl, @greenweddingshoes and @roamaroo with combined followers numbering over 1,200,000.  The winning couple will be flown to Botswana, one of the largest producers of gem quality diamonds in the world, to see first hand the impact diamonds have had on the country and to share their experiences through social media.

The ‘Real Stories. Real Diamonds. Real Impact’ contest was made possible through the grant D.E.F received from the JCK Industry Fund. In addition to the three digital influencers, communication of the contest will be made through brands’, retailers’ and the DiamondsDoGood social media channels.

D.E.F President, Anna Martin, Sr. VP of GIA says, “Educating the younger generation on the good diamonds do and inviting them to engage in this narrative will help boost consumer confidence and ultimately demand for diamonds”.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
