“The market for lab-grown diamonds is expanding rapidly,” said Jonathan Goldman, CEO of Frederick Goldman. “We have spent the past year studying how we would enter this business. Our purchase of the Love Earth brand has expedited those plans.

“As an industry, we need to find new and innovative ways to excite the consumer and compete with other discretionary purchases. We believe that lab-grown diamonds are one of those ideas.”

Dan Schneider, founder of Love Earth, has joined Frederick Goldman vice president of sales for the brand.

“I look forward to contributing to the company’s success, providing their retail customers with the lab-grown products, programs and support required to successfully expand their market share,” Schneider said.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
