(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 Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
