Diamonds Do Good Names Winners of 2nd Annual Millennial-Focused Proposal Contest
Nicole and Isaiah

(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

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.
