(PRESS RELEASE) The American Society of Appraisers announces its Appraising Gems and Jewelry for Insurance Coverage course being held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018-Friday, May 11, 2018 in Carlsbad, CA. 

Whether you are new to the jewelry appraisal profession or regularly rely on the services of a jewelry appraisal professional, you will find the most current appraisal terminology together with appraisal development and report writing instruction presented in GJ202 invaluable. This course is designed to build a strong foundation and understanding of principals of valuation as they apply to gems and jewelry appraising, and to introduce the student to ASA descriptive guidelines for gems and jewelry. The required sections of an appraisal report for insurance coverage will be presented as modules with student exercises that encourage individual thinking and allow the student to apply valuation theory to his or her unique practice. Interactive lecture and discussion combined with class exercises create a positive learning environment in which students are encouraged to ask questions and share experiences. The limited class size affords participants the opportunity to network with top-level appraisers from across the country. Upon completion of this course, students will possess the tools and confidence necessary to write and/or interpret Gems and Jewelry appraisal reports to be used for insurance coverage in compliance with ASA and USPAP report writing requirements. 

Successful completion of GJ202 is required for GJ accreditation through ASA.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
