Van Zwam LLC

Independent PR Person

New York and surrounding suburbs

Description

Van Zwam LLC, a division of Rand Diamond has brought to market a breakthrough investment asset. Defined Value Diamonds (DVDs). The breakthough is the brainchild of president, Sean Cohen.

Rough diamonds are polished to GIA’s highest standard “Triple Excellent” and then go through a GIA certification (documenting each diamonds value characteristics), as well as a Gemprint process (virtual fingerprinting).

Van Zwam laboratories then re-inspects each diamond to confirm that it represents the higher side of GIAs grades. This is to ensure that when a time comes to resell that there can be no question or objectivity about the value of the diamonds.

Professionals assess diamond values using the weekly Rapaport Diamond Report, the global standard for diamond valuation. Additionally, to be a DVD the stones are selected to be of the colors, clarity, shape, and sizes most in demand for engagement purposes. This makes them highly liquid and easily resalable in the wholesale diamond market (professional buyers). The public (individual investors) buy at the same price that high-end retailers pay for the same diamonds — the PTP, generally 15-25% below the Rapaport pricing index and 45-60% less than the cost of the same diamond in jewelry.

Diamonds have not been percieved as a good commodity investment by most in the past due to losses in jewelry resales, subjectivity in valuation, and the knowledge required. The very wealthy, with professional consultants are now putting very large ($250,000. and up) colored diamonds in their portfolios. Defined Value Diamonds was created to make investing in diamonds foolproof, and easy to understand, buy and sell.

Diamonds of DVD quality have grown 5% annually year over year for the past ten years. It takes ten years to start a diamond mine and there are non planned at this time. New diamond availability is slowing as global demand is accelerating. A word of note is that diamonds when compared to commodities like gold are extremely stable, value swings are moderate and investment-grade diamonds do not generally see drops in value. This makes diamonds a very stable, compact, portable and discreet addition to anyone’s portfolio. Also, unlike paper investments, including gold ETFs which are only backed by 10% of actual gold, when you buy a DVD you physically possess it. You hold it in the palm of your hand. DVDs are beautiful to look at. You can set DVD diamonds in jewelry without altering their value. You can gift them to spouses, children, grandchildren. (DVDs initial customers acquired numerous discs as trusts for their grandchildren.)

DVD discs can be made from as low as $1,000. to $500,000 and more. An investor may also collect as many DVDs as he/she chooses.

The DVD website is available for review at https://www.dvddiamonds.

Van Zwam is currently running Adwords campaigns and remarketing on Google, some small local and national print ads as well as paid media on one investor news website. One press release was distributed to announce the company launch.

Requirements

PR may be our wisest marketing approach.

The job is to communicate this breakthrough in investing to the media community, develop media relations, write and pitch articles.

We believe that with the responsibility of creating a market for this product and educating the public is a requirement. Third party endorsement will be critical to developing trust in the company and understanding the asset… let alone lead generation.

We seek an independent PR professional to work on a retainer basis to help establish this brand and build our marketplace. You must have both financial services and some diamond/gemstone knowledge and experience.

DVD has begun with a limited marketing budget to be funded based on results. To that point diamond cutters/polishers who sell to the wholesale marketplace must sell volume. The margin is 4-5% as opposed to jewelers who commonly realize 45-65% markups.

We are soliciting proposals for this opportunity.

Please provide a resume including relevant experience and accomplishments and outline the services you believe are most critical upfront. Please provide an itemized estimate of monthly costs for providing these services.
