Three industry leaders were honored for their leadership and service at the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s Diamonds Do Good Awards Gala, held last week. Nate Light, the former CEO of Sterling Jewelers; Dorothée Gizenga, executive director of the Diamond Development Initiative; and Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group were recognized for making a positive impact on communities in the U.S., China and Africa.

Light received the Diamonds Do Good Lifetime Achievement Award for spearheading the “Party With a Purpose” and inspiring what is now called Jewelers For Children. “This honor is truly a wonderful and symbolic highlight of my career,” he says. “I want kids as they grow up not to have to suffer. We need to keep raising money to create a better life and a better world for them. I challenge you to use this as a call to action to do even more for kids and for your community.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
