(PRESS RELEASE) Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Cultured Pearl Association of America (CPAA) is extending the deadline for entries to its 11th Annual International Pearl Design Competition (IPDC). The new deadline for entries is Friday, Dec. 18, 2020.

The live judging portion of the contest routinely happens in a restaurant in New York City during the last week of October. However, because of COVID-19, a lack of a vaccine, and concerns surrounding indoor dining, CPAA does not feel it is safe to for judges and staff to meet in person. CPAA is extending the deadline for entries to Friday, Dec. 18, 2020. At that time, CPAA will determine a safe way to conduct live judging. CPAA apologizes if this move interferes with any plans on the part of entrants, but know that the association is concerned about the safety of individuals who participate in live judging.

A reminder: This year, the cost to enter is $175 for your first two entries. Third entries and beyond (up to five total) are $150 apiece.

Wilkerson Testimonials

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
