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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
