(PRESS RELEASE) Building on the success of its debut Swarovski Created Diamonds collections in the USA and Canada, Swarovski announces the global expansion of its fine jewelry category across all flagship stores and key markets such as China, Italy, Korea, Japan UK, Australia, France, Germany, Austria, and the UAE.

The move is the next phase in a global roll out for Swarovski Created Diamonds and a mark of strategic intent for the Austrian crystal house as it accelerates its expansion into the category and prepares to launch ‘Galaxy’, the first fine jewelry collection designed by Global Creative Director Giovanna Engelbert. The ‘Galaxy’ collection will be unveiled at the launch of Swarovski’s new 5th Avenue flagship store in New York this Fall.

This coincides with the announcement of a partnership with the International Gemological Institute (IGI), which will certify all laboratory grown diamonds in Swarovski’s ‘Galaxy’ collection.

The independent body, which is a global leader for diamond assessment and has almost 50 years of experience in diamond grading, will certify the quality of every lab-grown diamond adorning new Swarovski Created Diamond collections according to the 4Cs of diamond quality: cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

Alexis Nasard, Swarovski Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Lab-grown diamonds will play a significant role in the future of the diamonds category, and they represent a strategic growth category for Swarovski. Our partnership with IGI will guarantee the quality of each stone in our forthcoming Swarovski Created Diamonds collections, enhancing consumer trust and confidence during our global roll out.”

Roland Lorie, chief executive of IGI, commented: “Swarovski has been renowned for its precision cutting, innovation, and artistry since 1895. We are pleased our new partnership will ensure that every single stone is graded and certified according to the 4 Cs of diamond quality.”

Swarovski Created Diamonds are 100% identical to mined diamonds – the only difference is how they originate. They are made using a process that replicates nature, resulting in a lab-grown diamond that is indistinguishable from a mined diamond in all chemical, physical, and optical attributes and are considered to be more environmentally friendly.

Entry into the fine jewelry market is a natural evolution for the brand, which has offered lab-grown diamonds since 2016 as part of its B2B portfolio.

The collection will be available from September 18 in stores across the US and Canada, including Swarovski’s new 5th Avenue flagship store, which opens Fall 2023.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
