(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Assael, the 75-year-old fine jewelry brand and foremost purveyor of magnificent pearls and responsibly sourced coral in North America, announced the debut of an all-new documentary style short film entitled Assael Revealed – The Legendary Legacy of Pearl Pioneer Salvador J. Assael. Produced by three-time Emmy Award winner Dean Love and his production company Dean Love Films, the mini-doc explores the enduring and historic legacy of the late Salvador Assael, hailed as “a titan of the cultured pearl business” by the New York Times.

“My late husband was a legend in the pearl world,” says Christina Lang Assael, President and CEO of Assael. “He was the first to bring South Sea Pearls to North America, and he literally started the global Tahitian Pearl industry. This long overdue film tells the true story of him as a swashbuckling adventurer with incredible business savvy and an absolute genius for marketing. I am honored to now share his legacy with fellow pearl connoisseurs.”

The film conveys Salvador’s personal love affair with the very finest pearls and the global impact of his leadership. In personal interviews with his beloved wife Christina, now serving as Assael CEO and President, the seven-decade history of the brand is revealed, including many significant firsts, as well as Salvador’s instrumental role in the very creation of the Tahitian pearl market. With appearances by Christina Lang Assael and jewelry veterans Stellene Volandes, Editor-in-Chief of Town & Country, award-winning jewelry historian and author Vivienne Becker and Peggy Grosz, Senior VP of Assael, the compelling video provides an inside look behind the scenes of the New York City pearl brand.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
