Mr. Pramod Kumar Agrawal said, “Jewelers for Hope” is a platform where gem & jewelry industry comes together to contribute for a common cause. As an industry, we have always contributed generously for the upliftment of the underprivileged. The gem & jewelry industry has been involved in large-scale philanthropic initiatives particularly in the field of primary education, health & hygiene since a long time. This year, we have chosen to support niche areas such as the Indian army welfare, tribal welfare, affordable healthcare and maternal care to the underprivileged. I thank all contributors for coming forward and supporting the Jewelers for Hope initiative.

A fund of Rs 1 Crore was raised from Jewelers for Hope Charity Dinner event and it was evenly distributed to Army Welfare, Tribal Integrated Development & Education Trust (TIDE) and Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care (SRLC) respectively.

Mr. Paul Rowley said, “Diamond does changes lives. Diamond is truly forever, and it reflects love. At De Beers we have always believed in helping in building the society. India is no different from the African nations, where there is abundance of talent and skillsets. Through this initiative we would like to make the society a better place to live.”

Mr. Colin Shah said, “The selection of the three NGOs Army Welfare, Tribal Integrated Development & Education Trust (TIDE) and Shrimad Rajchandra Love & Care (SRLC), was a unanimous choice by the GJEPC members. All the three NGOs have done outstanding work for the needy and underprivileged.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
