NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a successful test launch, Helzberg Diamonds, in conjunction with Platinum Guild International (PGI USA,) is preparing for the official launch of its new platinum collection of engagement rings and wedding bands in select stores nationwide in October.
In support of the collection, PGI USA is providing platinum training in all stores and also offering online training.
"Helzberg is dedicated to unparalleled quality and service so platinum bridal jewelry is a natural fit for their stores," says PGI USA president Huw Daniel. "Helzberg Associates shine in their enthusiasm and expertise, and we are thrilled with how the platinum collection has been received thus far."
The platinum styles will be featured in Helzberg's advertising as well as in-store brochures and counter signs. Advertising for the collection promotes the enduring qualities of platinum.
"Celebrate a love that lasts forever with the enduring beauty and strength of platinum. It is a feeling you never want to end. Filled with hope and promise. Strong enough to stand the test of time. Mark your enduring love with the beauty and strength of platinum. Never changing, never fading, it is the ultimate symbol of your lifelong commitment to one another."
Helzberg CEO Beryl Raff says, "At Helzberg, we strive to make the experience of purchasing an engagement ring and wedding band a truly special one. We believe that by offering a couple platinum rings and bands, we are offering a quality that symbolizes their lifelong journey. Helzberg believes in platinum."
Platinum is naturally white and, unlike other white metals, will never change color or fade so it is the perfect choice for jewelry that symbolizes a lasting relationship.
