(PRESS RELEASE) REHOVOT, ISRAEL — LUSIX, a leading, technology-driven, sustainable producer of lab-grown diamonds, announced that it has appointed Mr. Eyal Axelrod as its VP of Sales and Marketing. This pivotal hire comes as LUSIX substantially expands its production capacity with its new state-of-the-art growing facility currently being built in Israel.

As an executive at LUSIX, Eyal will lead the sales and marketing strategy, including the creation of new partnerships and innovative offerings to support the company’s growth, its clients, and the positive positioning of lab-grown diamonds worldwide. Eyal brings vast knowledge and experience in the mined diamond industry from his time with I. Hennig & Co, as a De Beers broker and consultant to large international diamond companies throughout the diamond pipeline.

“We are extremely happy to welcome Eyal to LUSIX’s management team,” said Dr. Silviu Reinhorn, CEO of LUSIX adding, “As LUSIX continues to grow, we have an excellent group of leaders at the forefront to help accomplish our vision of being supplier of choice for very high quality sustainably grown diamonds. Eyal’s appointment will enable LUSIX to reach new strategic clients and strengthen our ties with leading diamond industry players.”

The lab-grown diamond market grew exponentially over the last 5 years. This growth has been driven by retailer and consumer demand and shows no signs of letting up. LUSIX achieved SCS Global Responsibly Grown Diamond certification in 2021.

“After spending many years in the diamond industry, I believe the timing is right to move into the lab-grown diamond market,” said Eyal Axelrod, who continued, “I joined the LUSIX team because of the entrepreneurial visionary, Benny Landa, owner of LUSIX and the leadership of Dr. Reinhorn. LUSIX has always stood out as a well-managed, ethical company. My aim is now to support the growth of the company by developing and leading our sales and marketing strategy globally.”




She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
