(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Diamonds Do Good will convene viewpoints from De Beers’ Bruce Cleaver, Signet’s Gina Drosos, Alrosa’s Sergey Ivanov, Rosy Blue’s Russell Mehta and Chow Tai Fook’s Kent Wong in a live interactive event on July 30 from 11 a.m. to noon EDT. Diamonds Do Good co-founder and civil rights advocate Dr. Benjamin Chavis will give opening remarks, along with a special appearance from magician and endurance artist David Blaine.

The event is free, although donations to support the work of Diamonds Do Good are greatly welomed. Donations of $50 or more will receive a Green Bracelet as a thank-you gift.

“The world has undergone a seismic change over the last few months,” says Diamonds Do Good president Anna Martin. “Learning how global companies in our industry are adapting will bring perspective for all businesses.”

This will be the first in a series of virtual gatherings that Diamonds Do Good plans on hosting in the months to come. In between the global observations will be special ‘segment interludes,’ including Victoria Gomelsky announcing the winner of the Diamonds Do Good Jewelry Awards in partnership with JCK announced earlier this year.

Registration is free and will be announced soon on the Diamonds Do Good Website on the About Us/Virtual Global Gathering page.

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
