During the pre-registration for the June Fair, a visitor’s passport/ national identity card numbers/ Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macau, and document scans may be collected for the prevention and detection of crime, and to protect the security and safety of the Jewellery exhibitions. Such data will be stored in the databases of the Organisers in order to verify the visitor’s identity before, during and – for a reasonable time – after the Jewellery exhibitions. The Organiser reserves the right to refuse admission to visitors who fail to comply with these requirements. Registration counters will be closed 30 minutes before the fair ends.

Visitors from most countries and regions do not need a visa to enter Hong Kong, just a valid passport.

Diamond Empowerment Fund Now Doing Business As Diamonds Do Good

The change will be celebrated at DDG’s signature event June 1 in Las Vegas.

(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Seizing on the simplicity, significance and resonance of its “Diamonds Do Good” tagline, the Diamond Empowerment Fund announced that it will evolve its business name to Diamonds Do Good. In keeping with the change, the non-profit organization has reimagined its logo and will be doing the same to its signature Las Vegas event held on the eve of the opening of the JCK Show.

Inspired by Nelson Mandela in 2007, over the past 12+ years the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s mission has supported programs that develop and empower people in diamond communities around the world. In recent years, its mission expanded to exemplify and tell the stories of the good that natural diamonds do for people in the communities where they’re mined, cut, polished, and sold. Those stories have resonated with consumers and the trade alike: consumers have a better image of the natural diamond industry, and are more interested in purchasing a natural diamond after reading the ‘do good’ stories hosted on diamondsdogood.com. Likewise, members of the industry now identify their own sustainability programs under the ‘do good’ banner and use #diamondsdogood in their social media outreach, further building on the message and ensuring that diamonds continue to be a source of sustained economic development around the world.

Having created and trademarked the Diamonds Do Good name in 2014, the organization will now identify itself under this moniker moving forward, and has rebranded itself with a fresh, new look to mark this evolution. It will be celebrated at DDG’s signature event June 1 in Las Vegas, as a reimagined evening and experience that draws the industry’s top global leaders.

(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — In honor of Giving Tuesday, Jewelers Mutual Group announced the culmination of its charitable campaign for 2019, resulting in $500,000 in donations to three deserving organizations. Funds were distributed this week to Feeding America, the Kids In Need Foundation and Special Olympics. The amounts donated to these organizations were based on votes by the company’s personal jewelry policyholders.

“It is important to have our policyholders be a part of our give back efforts because we share a mutual passion to help others in need. By encouraging them to vote, they made their voices heard, and were able to support the causes they are passionate about,” said Scott Murphy, Jewelers Mutual president and CEO. “Together, we really can do more, and we’re thrilled with the interest, engagement and the results this campaign has received both locally and on a national level.”

More than 40,000 votes were made by Jewelers Mutual policyholders during the five-month voting period. Based on policyholder votes, Feeding America received $178,300, Kids In Need Foundation received $169,500, and Special Olympics received $147,200. Donations will also be made to Canadian organizations with similar missions.

How policyholders’ votes and corresponding Jewelers Mutual donations impacted the three organizations:

  • Feeding America
    The donation of $178,300 helps provide at least 1,783,000 meals.*
  • Kids In Need Foundation
    The donation of $169,395 supplies over 820 classrooms and 21,000 under-served students with supplies and resources. Additionally, Jewelers Mutual became the first national sponsor of GiftATeacher.org, a program which funds and provides enough school supplies to supply an entire classroom for a full semester.
  • Special Olympics
    The donation of $147,200 by Jewelers Mutual helped train approximately 2,450 Special Olympics athletes and provide a significant and life changing impact for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Jewelers Mutual encourages and supports its employees to be socially responsible and involved in their community. In addition to the dollars being donated, employees volunteered their time to assist all three organizations in 2019– sorting meals and stocking food for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, a member of the Feeding America network; taking part in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics; and, packing and distributing 2,000 backpacks for the Kids In Need Foundation.

Jewelers Mutual looks forward to continuing its philanthropic pursuits in 2020 to support charitable organizations important to its employees and policyholders.
