(PRESS RELEASE)NEW YORK — New York-based lab grown diamond jewelry brand Smiling Rocks, has been awarded the Butterfly Mark, powered by Positive Luxury, for excellence across areas of innovation, social and environmental practices, governance, and philanthropy. Launching in 2019, it was the co-founders of Smiling Rocks’ mission to refashion the industry by offering stunning luxury designs in lab grown diamonds and collections as a means of making the world a better place all with the sustainable difference.

After 1.5 years in the process of assessment, the certification was received before the JCK Las Vegas show this year, which sat proudly on the stand allowing retailers, media and JCK attendees to see that Smiling Rocks as a brand has been audited, is credible and is proving itself in every step of its journey as a transparent brand.

“We are very excited to get the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury.” says Zulu Ghevriya, co-founder of Smiling Rocks. “We have gone through lots of stages and worked behind our sustainable goals from using recyclable/recycled and biodegradable materials in our packaging and displays, implementing our business practice with recycling system in global offices, our giving back movement, and our policies in the company to become a carbon neutral brand in the near future. These goals are in our action plans and are continuing to implement our business towards a green future.”

“It is not an easy task to receive the Butterfly Mark” says Kishwar Mehmood, global brand director of Smiling Rocks. “Our brand was glad to receive passing grades on its Environmental, Social, Governance and Innovation (ESG+ Framework) and after a lengthily process, we are proud of our accolade”.

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.”
