Welcome to 2015!

Here’s to a happy and healthy New Year to our friends and clients around the world. Everyone at William Goldberg sends our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your continued support. It is your valued partnerships that allow us to build our business around the globe.

I recently visited one of those partners in the United Kingdom – the Wainwright family, founders and owners of the iconic Boodles jewelry company, founded in 1798. On this trip, my wife and I attended a beautiful cocktail party for some of their esteemed clients. Six generations of Wainwrights have created one of the finest companies in Europe. From Nicholas, the chairman, to his son, Jody, a Boodles director, this remarkable family is focused on achieving excellence in design, craftsmanship and service.

Their commitment to the ASHOKA® brand is just as remarkable. Many of their stores feature ASHOKA® diamond jewelry in their front windows, which is always fantastic to see. And their website does a spectacular job of showcasing their unique ASHOKA® diamond jewelry collection – exclusive to Boodles throughout the UK. In fact, Managing Director Michael Wainwright calls ASHOKA® his “favourite gemstone.”

I plan to continue visiting the Wainwright family and their Boodles stores in the United Kingdom at least three to four times each year, working alongside them to grow the ASHOKA® diamond brand throughout England. They are also embarking on a mega expansion with their Bond Street and Sloane Street locations, and we can’t wait to see the outcome.

As we begin another year, the integrity of the House of Goldberg endures. Three generations of the Goldberg family are working to grow a remarkable legacy.

We look forward to more successful endeavors and strategic alliances for years to come!
