Van Cott Jewelers and Forevermark Diamonds teamed up last week for a diamond jewelry show titled "Party With a Purpose" to benefit Mercy House of the Southern Tier.  The event was held at the Binghamton Country Club.  Mercy House is located on North McKinley Avenue in Endicott and is a home for the terminally ill.  Residents spend their final days in a friendly, compassionate setting.

According to Charles Stanley, President of Forevermark Diamonds and William Levine who along with wife Birdie own Van Cott Jewelers, over five million dollars worth of diamond jewelry was on display.  Much of the inventory in the show can be seen at Van Cott's locations in Vestal at the Town Square Mall and in Johnson City at the Oakdale Mall.

Forevermark Diamonds come from the De Beers Group of Companies and benefit from over 129 years in diamond expertise.
