A jewelry company gets political.

Tiffany & Co. has written an open letter to President Donald Trump on climate change.

In a message published on social media and as an advertisement in The New York Times, the company wrote:

We’re still in for bold climate action. Please keep the US in the Paris Climate Agreement. The disaster of climate change is too real, and the threat to our planet and to our children is too great.

By Wednesday afternoon, the company’s Facebook post with the letter had generated 19,000 reactions, 2,126 shares and 593 comments.

Reactions to the post were mixed, with some Facebook users saying the company should stay out of politics.

One user wrote: “It is incredibly nearsighted when companies needlessly feel the need to preach, thereby cutting off half of their customers. Stick to what you do well, which is make beautiful, if not overpriced jewelry. Goodbye Tiffany.”

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.”
