(Press Release)
NEW YORK – Realizing that today’s consumers want to do business with companies that are a force for positive change, the Diamond Empowerment Fund recently launched the “Diamonds Do Good” global video messaging campaign. Three 60-second PSA videos aim to showcase the correlation between the purchases of diamonds and the positive effects of those purchases on communities throughout the world.

As part of D.E.F.’s Diamonds Do Good mission, the campaign’s consumer-impacting videos target more than 8 million millennials and will rotate on global websites such as Vogue, The New York Times, Instyle, Elle, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and more.

The social impact initiatives featured in each PSA video can also be found on DiamondsDoGood.com and include these programs: Forevermark’s support of the Zimele business loan program in South Africa, Rio Tinto’s support of sustainable development and clean water through the Bunder project in India, and the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s own support of the Flaviana Matata Foundation giving scholarships to young women in Tanzania.

Championing the positive stories behind diamonds is a continuation of the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s effective effort to reach millennials and all consumers with messaging that builds consumer confidence. Retailers can help educate their customers by sharing the videos on their own social network channels and by posting the videos on their website. Contact Diamond Empowerment Fund’s executive director, Nancy Orem Lyman, at [email protected] for more information.

Earlier this month the Diamond Empowerment Fund celebrated its mission to provide education to youth from diamond communities by hosting six student scholars at the Diamonds Do Good Awards Gala, held June 2 in Las Vegas. The visiting students came from two of D.E.F.’s beneficiary programs, African Leadership Academy and Botswana Top Achievers.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
