(Press Release)
NEW YORK, NY – Love and Pride, an online business founded to promote education and better understanding of the LGBTQ community, has announced a new expansion of its consumer reach with a presence Zales stores across the U.S. and Peoples stores in Canada.

Zales is owned by Signet Jewelers Ltd. Since its inception, Love and Pride has donated more than $500,000 to LGBT causes and is now encouraging support for those affected by the recent mass shooting in Orlando, FL at the Pulse, an LGBT bar and nightclub that resulted in 49 dead and more than 50 people injured.

“While we are thrilled to bring our product line and the spirit of our work at Love and Pride to Zales stores across the country, we are acutely aware of the urgent need to support the LGBT community in the aftermath of the Orlando shooting,” says Love and Pride founder Udi Behr, who is also the jewelry designer behind the collections. “Our hearts go out to all those affected and we are even more determined to find ways to support the LGBT community, by going to www.gofundme.com/PulseVictimsFund to support the victims and their families.”

Behr added: “This partnership with Zales will help Love and Pride fulfill its mission as a successful business, and as importantly, one that supports the LGBT community and will create an accessible, meaningful option for LGBTQ people seeking products that speak to their hearts. This partnership, in the works for well over a year, has been a labor of love. As we reach out to the LGBT community across the country, Zales has been an amazing ally, providing training and support to all their stores to provide the most inclusive and thoughtful experience for couples who are looking for beautiful jewelry that speaks to their hearts as they marry. We postponed this launch in deference to the massacre in Orlando and are now redoubling our efforts in solidarity with the victims, their families and the larger LGBT community that is reeling from this tragedy.”

Love and Pride’s jewelry collections, including engagement, commitment, wedding and anniversary rings, are now available in more than 60 Zales stores in the U.S. and will be expanding to other stores in the U.S. and Canada.

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.”
