(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) is partnering with COUTURE to bring the best of COUTURE’s talented designers direct to consumers in real-time for the first-time ever. Leveraging the Only Natural Diamonds (OND) platform, LIVE from COUTURE will give the industry’s diverse and innovative talent premiere exposure to the next generation of luxury consumers.

Historically a closed event reserved for the jewelry industry, COUTURE is the most prestigious jewelry exhibition in the world, featuring the industry’s top and up-and-coming design talent in one space. For the first time in its tenure, COUTURE will be brought to a consumer audience through the partnership with NDC, providing an insider’s look to the most covetable diamond jewelry trends emerging from the exhibition in real time. The choice to increase visibility of COUTURE and open it up to a new, virtual audience stemmed from recent consumer desire for fine jewelry underlined by a persistent uptick in diamond jewelry sales this year.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
