(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.

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.
