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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
