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

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
