Third Generation Diamantaire Launches Cufflink Line
Antwerp, Belgium—David Gotlib, a third-generation diamantaire, always had a secret hankering to create a line of men’s jewelry. So Gotlib, the owner of IDRP, a rough and polished diamond business, assembled a team to design a range of diamond cufflinks he named “Oh My Got.” The line includes three collections: Classic (timeless styles), Smart (contemporary and thematic styles), and Dare (modern and edgy styles). All styles include ethically sourced diamonds, ranging from white through various colors, and many styles also include ethically sourced colored gemstones.
Since its inception, the line has garnered an impressive following in the fashion press and among celebrities. Carey Hart, husband of famed singer P!nk, was spotted wearing them at the 2017 MTV Music Awards, and Ron Cephas Jones, Jimmy O. Yang, and Chris Sullivan wore them for the 69th Annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, CA last September.
Clockwise from left: Moonstone and diamond links from Oh My Got's Classic line, $4,000; golf clubs from the Smart line, $2,600; "Vipers" diamond and sapphire links, from the Dare line, $7,700.
Another Female Suspect On The Lam, Says JSA
New York, NY—A Hispanic female suspect (pictured below in surveillance photos from three different targets) was on a crime spree in two states just before Christmas and remains on the loose. A Jewelers Security Alliance bulletin issued Decmeber 21 says the suspect entered a retail jewelry store in Manhattan on Tuesday, December 19, at 4:05 p.m. and asked to see a high-end gold watch. When presented with the watch, she got up and ran out of the store with it. A guard chased her outside and got the watch back, but in the process the suspect was able to flee the scene.
The following day, the same suspect dressed in some of the same clothing, entered a jewelry store in Richmond, VA. She looked at the high-end watch case but decided to make a quick exit. Later in the day, however, the same suspect robbed a Richmond bank at gunpoint, by handing the teller a note and displaying the handgun in her jacket pocket.
The suspect is described as in her 20s, 5’4” to 5’6” with a thin build. JSA photos below, from surveillance videos, highlight similarities in the clothing she wore for all three incidents. Anyone with information is asked to please call the Richmond FBI office at (804) 261-1044.
Although females may be part of a crime operation, it’s more typical for their role to be as a distraction or getaway driver. It’s very rare for an armed woman to rob a store on her own. The first such criminal, Abigail Lee Kemp, went on a lengthy spree in the South in 2015 and early 2016, before being caught in Atlanta in January last year.
