(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.

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.”
