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

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.”
