(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
