(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The Diamond Empowerment Fund  (D.E.F) launched the ‘Real Stories. Real Diamonds. Real Impact’ proposal contest targeting millennials.

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”.

Contest details can be found on DiamondsDoGood.com/myproposalcontest and industry members are encouraged to share the contest link with their customers.

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.”
