Company statement comes after Kay Jewelers customers alleged their diamonds were replaced.

In a statement quoted on Rapaport, Signet Jewelers denies allegations that it swapped out customers’ diamonds for lower-quality gems – an accusation levied by Kay’s Jewelers customers in a recent Buzzfeed report. That report has since gained major traction on various other news outlets, fashion-related websites and social media.

“We strongly object to recent allegations on social media, republished and grossly amplified, that our team members systematically mishandle customers’ jewelry repairs or engage in diamond swapping,” the owner of Kay Jewelers said in the statement. “Incidents of misconduct, which are exceedingly rare, are dealt with swiftly and appropriately.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
