(U) Ritani Tabling at Lincoln Center

September 25 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Everybody has presumptions, recommendations, or a “diamond guy” going into engagement ring shopping. We want you to educate yourself on diamonds so that you can determine which ring is right for you and your budget. We’ve put our 40+ years of jewelry experience into an online education hub so you can get the most important information at your fingertips.

Ritani’s Mission:
Creating jobs
Namibia’s economy was weakened and unstable from the diamond industry. Even though rough diamonds were one of their main exports, Namibia’s rough diamonds sold for far less than the cut and polished versions did in Europe. Ritani decided to turn this around by creating more jobs in Namibia. In 2008, Ritani built a factory in Windhoek, the nation’s capital, to sort and cut diamonds. This factory has provided better-paying jobs for the community and has strengthened its economy.

Giving back
In addition to creating more jobs for communities in Namibia, Julius Klein Group has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to various human rights groups, including the Moria Grace Shelter, an orphanage that houses over 30 children. JKG is also dedicated to furthering the education of children by donating thousands of dollars to Namibian primary schools.

Supporting the arts
Ritani cares deeply for the environment and ethically sourcing materials. We award students with a scholarship that have demonstrated outstanding innovation and environmental sustainability in their craft. Today’s brilliant minds are shaping our future.
