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.”

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.”
