“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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
