(PRESS RELEASE) SECAUCUS, NJ – Frederick Goldman, Inc., (FGI) will now license Tungsten Carbide material to Thorsten Rings, LLC, a men’s wedding band wholesaler based in Long Beach, California. Thorsten is FGI’s newest licensee of the patented material.

Frederick Goldman, Inc. is the exclusive licensee of the Trent West Tungsten Carbide (US Patent No. 6,928,734) which remains in effect until August 23, 2023. FGI has the rights to add additional licensees at its sole discretion. Only those authorized licensees can sell Tungsten Carbide wedding rings in the market.

Over the past 10 years FGI has also built up its own portfolio of patents on unique coatings and construction processes. In 2015, FGI launched Triton’s White Tungsten Carbide which obtains its color through a patented nano-technology multi-layered coating applied to the surface of the metal. The proprietary coating process is specifically designed to enhance the color and provide extra protection and durability to prolong the life and luster of the coated products. This patented coating is highly scratch, tarnish, wear and fade-resistant and designed to
last. (US Patent No. 8,932,437 / 8,927,107 / 8,956,510 / 9,034,488 / 9,949,539 / 9,629,425 / 9,949,538 / 9,949,539)

Frederick Goldman Inc. also has a Patent Pending on a multi-piece construction featuring a virtually seamless design that combines contemporary metals with precision-machined 14K Gold. This design allows for a perfectly smooth fit on the inside of the ring which is superior to anything the competition is offering. The patent application covers the use of Tungsten Carbide as well as all other precious and contemporary metals in the FGI portfolio.

The latest addition to FGI’s patent application is the Patent Pending on DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated components in men’s rings. DLC is a carbon-based coating with some properties of diamond that is often used in luxury watches, and high-end performance tools for its tough, protective, and adhesive qualities over traditional PVD coating. FGI has created a hybrid multi-layer process utilizing nano-technology to apply the DLC coating (patent pending). This coating helps minimize overall corrosion and wear resistance while maintaining a luxurious heavyweight and comfortable feel.

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.”
