The new LMS features a newly overhauled and interactive Diamond Course featuring updated and expanded course content in addition to a streamlined learning platform.

The Diamond Course brings learning to life for the front-line sales associate. The e-learning course is designed to help students apply newly learned information quickly and efficiently. As knowledge is presented, the course describes how to use it in sales and everyday store operations. The course may be taken at the student’s own pace.

The LMS also hosts the courses Beginning Jewelry Sales, Advanced Jewelry Sales, and Colored Gemstones.

The courses can now be accessed through a revamped website at DCAlearning.org. All courses are available for $125 per course for DCA members and $200 per course for non-DCA members.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
