Merchandise The company produces jewelry in New York, Rhode Island and Kentucky, and silver hollowware in Rhode Island. The company processes, cuts, and polishes diamonds at facilities outside the U.S. Rough and Polished Diamonds: The company has established diamond processing operations that purchase, sort, cut, and/or polish rough diamonds for its use. The company has such operations in Belgium, Botswana, Mauritius, Namibia, South Africa, and Vietnam, and intends to establish operations in Cambodia in 2014.
