Major Retailers to Carry New Lab-Grown Jewelry Brand
Sales prices for the Grown With Love collection range from $500 to $10,000.

Richline Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, announced that its new lab-grown jewelry brand, Grown with Love, is launching at JCPenney and Macy’s.

Grown with Love is “a collection of jewelry that appeals to ethically-minded shoppers without sacrificing the beautiful sparkle and scintillation that every woman desires in her diamond jewelry or engagement ring,” according to a Richline press release.

“By choosing a lab-grown diamond, future bridal and fashion customers now
have a new, conscious choice, and can get a larger or higher quality stone for the
same price,” said Michael Milgrom, senior vice president, product, of Richline. “And with the most popular season for proposals – and shopping – just around the corner, this partnership is destined to shine.”

Grown with Love features bridal jewelry including solitaire and halo engagement rings, wedding bands and bridal sets as well as a small selection of non-bridal items, including diamond earrings and necklaces. Diamonds in the Grown with Love line are certified by the International Gemological Institute.

Sale prices for the collection range from $500 to $10,000.

“What is most interesting and exciting about this category is that it is filling
several needs for consumers and aligning with their values,” said Lindsey Scarlata Woodruff, vice president of marketing at Richline. “In many cases it offers a higher quality stone for the same money, which is important as expendable incomes are down, people are choosing to spend their money in different ways, and expectations for value are high. This also appeals to a ‘conscious consumer’ who is seeking purchases that ethically align with their beliefs.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
