(PRESS RELEASE) LAGUNA BEACH, CA — Verify My Diamond (VMD) is a new initiative involving two jewelry industry veterans teaming up with NetObjex of Irvine, CA, to help bring transparency to the diamond markets. VMD is a bold new initiative that utilizes the latest in mobile, cloud and blockchain technologies to help bridge the gap between the physical world and the virtual world.

Verify My Diamond is an independent, unbiased network that tracks the lineage of a diamond. “Our aim is to create the world’s largest registrar of trade and consumer owned diamonds”, says Mr. Raghu Bala, one of co-founders.

VMD was created to inform, and protect consumer interests by showing the history of a diamond. The information provided for free and will allow the user to make a confident decision when purchasing a diamond.
“Verify My Diamond offers a safe and secure way to look up a diamond, transfer ownership, and register a diamond using blockchain technology – the latest 21st century advancement in data retention technology.”, says Brendon Willenkamp one of the co-founders.

The VMD initiative involves a cross section of stakeholders including diamond manufacturers, retailers and consumers. “You might want to know if you are the first to own a particular diamond, or buying a pre-owned diamond. Another great benefit when a diamond is registered is to give the owner the best chance of recovering it if it’s ever lost or stolen. Also, claiming a diamond in the blockchain gives credibility of verified ownership and security for anyone who might buy a diamond in the future”, says Louis Valentine managing director.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
