(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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
