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.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
