RAPAPORT... The Diamond Empowerment Fund (DEF) will present the first-ever “Diamonds Do Good” Lifetime Achievement Award to Nathan “Nate” Light, the former chief executive officer of Sterling Jewelers.

Light will receive the accolade at the DEF’s “Diamonds Do Good” Awards gala in Las Vegas June 2 at the Four Seasons Ballroom. The new annual award reflects the work of an individual who has promoted the importance of developing social-purpose programs and giving to help communities where the diamond industry does business, according to a DEF statement March 1.

“Light, who built an immensely successful business, epitomizes this ideal,” the statement said.

Light was active from the 1980s with the Foundation Fighting Blindness and helped organize the industry’s “Party With a Purpose” at JCK Las Vegas in 1994, where today’s Jewelers For Children (JFC) “Facets of Hope” Gala has its roots.
