“Doing good is not an afterthought, it’s part of Tiffany’s DNA and it is through support of organizations like Diamond Empowerment Fund that we are able to impact society and contribute to the sustainability of the communities where we source these precious gems,” said Tiffany & Co. executive vice president and COO James Fernandez.

Phyllis Bergman, president of D.E.F.’s board of directors, added: “We are thrilled to welcome such a well-respected company such as Tiffany & Co. as a sponsor of Diamonds in the Sky. We encourage other industry leaders to consider supporting this important event that celebrates the good that diamonds do.”

The Diamond Empowerment Fund was co-founded by Russell Simmons and leaders in the diamond industry in 2007.
