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 Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
