(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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
