“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

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.”
