Diamond Empowerment Fund Announces Honorees For 4th Annual ‘Good Awards’ January 8, 2015

By Zahra Al-Kateb

The Diamond Empowerment Fund has announced it will honor Jane Seymour, an accomplished actress, artist, jewelry designer, and philanthropist and Jewelers for Children including its highly respected executive director David Rocha at its fourth annual GOOD Awards to be held January 8, 2015 at the Empire Penthouse Lounge in New York City. Seymour, Jewelers for Children and Rocha are being honored for their global leadership and making a positive difference in the lives of countless youth and communities around the world.

The Diamond Empowerment Fund established the GOOD Awards in 2012 to recognize individuals, organizations, and corporations in the diamond and jewelry industry for outstanding leadership in the areas of global good corporate citizenship, sustainability and promoting opportunity in diamond communities.

Jane Seymour, a true renaissance woman, is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actress for her role as Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, among other performances. She is known in the jewelry world for her successful ‘Open Hearts’ Collection of jewelry. Ms. Seymour is also the co-founder of the ‘Open Hearts Foundation’ whose mission is to positively impact lives in the area of health, education, arts and sports. “It is an honor that the Diamond Empowerment Fund has chosen to recognize the work that I’ve done with my Open Hearts Foundation where we focus on organizations and individuals who turn adversity into an opportunity to serve others” says Ms. Seymour.

David Rocha has been the driving force behind the diamond and jewelry industry supported ‘Jewelers for Children’ (JFC) organization.  JFC’s mission is to help children in need. Since its founding by the U.S. jewelry industry in 1999, over 45 million dollars has been donated to organizations including Make-A-Wish and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as well as relief efforts following hurricane Katrina, the Asian tsunami, and the earthquake in Japan. Mr. Rocha, who has led the organization for the past 10 years says, “the impact the jewelry industry has made on the lives of countless children around the world inspires me every day”.

Phyllis Bergman, President of the Diamond Empowerment Fund, says, “we are thrilled to honor the exemplary achievements of Jane Seymour and David Rocha & Jewelers for Children”.
