(PRESS RELEASE) Diamonds Do Good, in partnership with JCK, has announced a submission extension for the first annual Diamonds Do Good Jewelry Awards, which recognize members of the jewelry industry who’ve made charitable giving an important component of their business strategies. The new deadline for entry is June 30.

“During this time of uncertainty, the certainty of our industry’s good works remains steadfast,” says Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief, JCK and JCKonline.com. Inspired by the submissions to-date, Gomelsky continues, “Philanthropy has never been more important than it is now, during a time of crisis, and these submissions exemplify the very best in our trade.”

Diamonds Do Good, formerly known as Diamond Empowerment Fund, will share submissions on their consumer facing platform, DiamondsDoGood.com, and associated social media channels. “We believe the sharing of these stories and encouragement of more submissions will inspire jewelers…and consumers during this unparalleled time,” says Anna Martin, president of Diamonds Do Good and senior vice president of GIA.

The contest will remain open to manufacturers and/or retailers of fine jewelry featuring precious metals and/or natural diamonds and gemstones until June 30th. The winners of the contest, as judged by the JCK editorial team, will be featured in JCK magazine later this year.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
