Helzberg Diamonds Joining AGS

EXCLUSIVE … Helzberg Diamonds, which has been revitalized under CEO Beryl Raff, is in the process of joining the American
Gem Society. For AGS, this is great news; it gives them a member with over 200
stores.  It is also an interesting
move by Helzberg, which suppliers say is moving somewhat upscale. AGS membership could help set it apart from competitors like Sterling. It also follows in the footsteps of Berkshire Hathaway siblings Ben Bridge and Borsheim’s. 

CEO Beryl Raff just told me: “We are proud and excited to
see Helzberg Diamonds become a member of AGS. Our culture and philosophy dating
back to the Helzberg family is in total alignment to that of the AGS – the
protection of the consumer; insuring a well trained, educated, and professional
staff; and demonstrating the highest integrity in everything we do. Helzberg
has always catered to the upper middle market with an average household income
consumer considerably higher than most other mall based jewelers. Our vision is
to continue to focus on the consumer base we serve giving our guests the best
customer experience possible.”
