(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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
