Organized in four categories — Diamonds & Gemstones, Customer Engagement, Store Management and Jewelry Care & Insurance — the BriteCo Resource Hub presents original research, blog posts, news articles, retail marketing materials and more. Popular Hub content includes success stories about how jewelers across the US are using BriteCo in their own stores, guides to updating a jewelry store website and building a stellar internet presence, and resources for jewelers to share with their customers, including a printable jewelry care guide.

Free to qualified jewelers, the BriteCo appraisal software provides retail jewelers with intuitive self-guided screens to enter key information, include photos, and get a recommended range for appraised value based on market data. Once the jeweler finalizes an appraised value, the customer receives an email with a customized electronic copy of the appraisal for their records.

“Most appraisals using the BriteCo appraisal software can be completed in five minutes,” according to BriteCo CEO Dustin Lemick, a third-generation jeweler. “With partner jewelers creating tens of thousands of appraisals this past year, our platform is proven to save huge amounts of time and effort while improving the customer’s experience at retail.”

When the appraisal is finalized, BriteCo sends an email or text directly to the customer offering replacement insurance coverage. The customer clicks a link in the message, fills out a short application on their phone or other device, and gets an exact quote based on their piece’s appraised value. Paying by credit or debit card, the customer is insured instantly.

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.
