(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.

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.”
