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.”

Chow Tai Fook received the Diamonds Do Good Community Development Award, and Dorothée Gizenga received the Diamonds Do Good Award for Sustainable Practices.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
