(PRESS RELEASE) New York, NY —Tuesday, June 12, 2018—  Hasenfeld-Stein, one of the leading diamantaires in the industry, will be among the first branded diamond companies to participate in the Proprietary Cut Program with GIA laboratories. The Proprietary Cut Program will include branded cut names on GIA grading reports for both Hasenfeld-Stein’s exclusive FirePrincess® and FireCushion® cut branded diamonds. Both brands are part of the FireMark® family of branded diamonds.

The GIA grading reports will now include the branded name of the proprietary diamond cut with the diamond shape and cutting style description. The reports provide a clear distinction between FirePrincess® and FireCushion® when selling them across the counter against non-branded princess and cushion cut diamonds. 

To participate, Hasenfeld-Stein was required to submit supporting documentation, including their diamond facet arrangement. “It’s not only a great step, but an important step by GIA, and I commend them for formulating this program. Retailers are looking for ways to distinguish between the benefits of a branded diamond and generics found in the marketplace. This new GIA initiative makes it easy for the retailer to demonstrate those differences”, stated Hertz Hasenfeld, CEO, Hasenfeld-Stein.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
