INSTORE created The SMART Jewelry Show to reach retailers in some of the same ways our magazine does. It’s intimate, friendly and comfortable to navigate. At the same time it has a big-show manufacturer lineup and an educational program that’s second to none.

You’ll find 80 educational sessions (most right on the show floor), a Smart Central exhibit featuring mind-blowing ideas for your store, and over 100 new vendors, including top young designers in our Generation Next pavilion.

You’ll rub elbows with the creators of some of America’s coolest stores and learn their secrets in talk-show style interviews with our analysts.

If you do repair and custom design, you’ll learn to promote your services and build a stronger artistic identity. And don’t miss our exciting live skills competition — The INSTORE Bench Pressure Challenge.

If you go to one trade show this year, The Smart Jewelry Show should be it.

Taking the advice we give you often, here’s the part where we ask for your reference. If you’re a show/mag supporter, could you please do us a favor and …

• Ask your favorite vendors if they’ll be at the show. If they say no, tell them they should be.

• Tell your fellow retailers that you’re going to The SMART Jewelry Show. (Change your Facebook and LinkedIn status to “I’m going to The SMART Jewelry Show. Are you?”)

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.”
