“We’re excited to bring this new format to our attendees and leverage the introduction of a
virtual component to provide a productive and unique industry event,” said Libby Brown,
executive director of the Atlanta Jewelry Show. “We’d love to see you at the event, so we’re
implementing a number of measures in order to reduce contact and ensure distance.

“However, we understand there are several factors that may prevent you from joining us in person. Your health and safety is absolutely paramount, which has sparked a renewed commitment to not
only providing attendees a successful event, but also a safe place to connect and move our industry forward.”

The AJS “Safety Shines” initiative is a multi-tier approach to delivering a safe and comfortable experience.


“We appreciate the creative thinking of the Atlanta Jewelry Show to keep this important industry
event going,” said Bill Warren, owner of Gold Mine Fine Jewelry & Gifts. “We look forward to seeing our vendor partners and friends. “This show is always an excellent place to connect buyers and sellers, and discuss opportunities moving forward.”

The show’s official sponsor and producer, the Southern Jewelry Travelers Association, is the nation’s oldest association for independent jewelry representatives.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
