Rochester, NY – For the fourth consecutive year RJO members at the RJO show in Indianapolis, IN, voted RDI Diamonds “Loose Goods Vendor Of The Year” and Aubre Ford as “Sales Person Of The Year” for the second year in a row.

“We at RDI Diamonds have always been dedicated to learning and growing our jeweler’s business and striving to distinguish ourselves by providing access to one of the largest diamond inventories in the world and partnering with retailers with specialized diamond programs, sales training and marketing support,” said Michael Indelicato, CEO of RDI Diamonds. “Continuing to have our hard work recognized keeps us motivated to keep raising the bar on ourselves.”

“As a happy customer of RDI for the last 20 years I knew that they would be a perfect fit for RJO,“ said Joe Koester, owner of Herzog Jeweler. “They understand today’s independent jeweler and they’re so easy to do business with.” Koster was instrumental in helping RDI become a member of the organization seven years ago.
