(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.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
