(PRESS RELEASE) In recognition of Valentine’s Day, Diamonds Do Good announced the winners of the second annual ‘Real Stories. Real Diamonds. Real Impact’ video proposal contest. A third year of the proposal contest is now being planned.

The winning couple of this year’s contest, Nicole and Isaiah, hail from North Carolina and were engaged during a trip to Ireland. “I love simple and natural… surrounded by the natural beauty of Ireland, the natural beauty of the diamond and my beautiful fiancé, our proposal story is one I will never get tired of telling” says Nicole.

Nicole and Isaiah will experience the natural beauty of the Northwest Territories of Canada, the third largest producer of natural diamonds. There they will see firsthand the impact natural, mined diamonds have had on the country and to share their experiences through social media.

Videos were judged by digital media influencers @thediamondsgirl, @weddingdiary and @roamaroo with combined followers numbering over 2,000,000.

“The contest is helping boost consumer understanding of the real, positive impact for communities of natural, mined diamonds,” says Executive Committee member Rebecca Foerster, president of Alrosa USA.

D.E.F President, Anna Martin, senior vice president of GIA, echoes, “Educating the younger generation on the good diamonds do and inviting them to engage in this narrative will help boost consumer confidence in, and ultimately demand for, diamonds.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
