Want a truly unique Valentine’s Day gift? Think Defined Value Diamonds!

Want a truly unique Valentine’s Day gift? Think Defined Value Diamonds!

Valentine’s Day is a time when both men and women spoil their significant other with goodies to show their love and appreciation for them. In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, the average person will spend around $142 on those gifts, which typically include candy, flowers, apparel, and jewelry. This year, there is a unique gift that people can give to both men and women that will not only surprise the recipient, but will give them a lasting investment at the same time.

“If you want a truly unique gift this year, consider giving the gift of a diamond investment,” explains Sean Cohen, president of Van Zwam, the creator of the Defined Value Diamonds. “Not only will it bring them joy then, but it will provide them with a secure investment that they can have for many years to come. These diamonds can also be set in jewelry anytime and their investment value will not be affected.”

What’s more, the federation estimates that holiday sales this year will reach $655.8 billion. While the focus of holiday shopping tends to be buying gifts for those who already have so much, this year many consumers can do something to feel better about their spending by rounding up the change from each transaction and donating it to those who are in need.

Social Entrepreneurship and Socially Conscious Businesses Take Center Stage

Consumers today are increasingly caring about the social consciousness of the companies that they do business with. In fact, according to Nielsen, a company that provides consumer insight, 55 percent of consumers globally report that they are even willing to pay more for products and services provided by companies that are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible. This is good news for those wanting to turn a profit, but yet not compromise on helping society to become a better place at the same time.

“At a sports philanthropy conference I attended last year, one of the speakers said  “the intersection of your passion and competence is your significance,” explains Leena Patidar, chief executive officer of Coin Up. “This is the foundation of why I chose social entrepreneurship. I can apply my expertise in building innovative companies, while making a world of difference.”
