Donald Trump’s election represents a major promotional opportunity for Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry and other Trump brands, the Washington Post reports.

And the Trump companies appear ready to jump at the chance.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump recently appeared on “60 Minutes” to talk about her father’s election.

Soon afterward, the jewelry brand sent a “style alert” to the media. It noted that a piece of jewelry that Ivanka Trump wore on the show, the 18-karat Metropolis diamond bangle, was available for $10,800.

The alert represented “one of the first moments since the election during which the Trump companies have sought to use Trump’s presidential prominence to boost their private fortunes,” according to the Post.

Ethics experts say conflicts of interest could arise during Trump’s presidency because of his many business holdings.

Abigail Klem, president of the Ivanka Trump brand, told the Post that many in the company are “still making adjustments post-election.”

He said the brand is “proactively discussing new policies and procedures with all of our partners going forward.”

Interest in Ivanka Trump’s brands increased as a result of the Trump campaign, according to the Post.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
