(Press Release) Las Vegas, NV – The American Gem Society has launched a new addition to its Find a Jeweler search tool on its website, Find A Professional Jeweler.

The new addition highlights credentialed industry professionals while reminding consumers of the importance of shopping with qualified jewelers who are up to date on their education and certification. The new tool is accessed from the home page of the AGS website or directly via its own url www.americangemsociety.org/findapro.

“AGS is pleased to highlight our titleholders and promote the importance of continued education and recertification,” said Ruth Batson, CEO of the AGS and AGS Laboratories. “If a consumer meets a jeweler, they now have an unbiased way to learn more about that jeweler’s commitment to education, ethics and professionalism.”

The tool provides information about jewelers, including their AGS credentials, whether they have completed their recent recertification and whether or not they recently attended Conclave. Visitors can hover over the icons next to the title, certification, and Conclave to read an explanation of each and its place within the fine jewelry industry.

AGS will continue to drive traffic to its Find a Jeweler search in 2017 through consumer advertising in both print and online.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
