(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 n.lyman@diamondempowerment.org 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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
