(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — GCAL (Gem Certification & Assurance Lab), in partnership with Vision 360, announced the opening of a new dedicated scanning service center – Studio 360, located in the GCAL laboratory on the 27th floor of 580 Fifth Avenue, New York City. With state-of-the-art technology, Vision 360 has been a global leader in creating superior quality 360° video photography of loose diamonds, colored gemstones, and finished jewelry. Now the same high-quality and cutting-edge technology service will be managed and operated in New York by GCAL. 
According to Angelo Palmieri, GCAL COO and partner: “We are the logical partner to be selected by Vision 360 because we were an early adaptor of this outstanding video and photographic technology. Our team of exceptionally talented technicians have become remarkably proficient, surpassing even our own expectations for video quality. And we continue to provide this service to all retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers certifying their diamonds, gemstones and finished jewelry with the GCAL laboratory.” “Timing is perfect,” continued Angelo, “with the impact of the 8X diamond cut grade on the industry. 8X certification is a visual, scientific and accurate demonstration of a diamond’s brilliance, fire, scintillation and beauty. The 8X digital certificates, featuring the 360° video, play a critical role in retail sales success.” Click the link here.

It is their high standard and consistency that led us to have a partnership with them. Likewise, the association between both companies was possible because we believe in a similar ideology- where integrity and customer satisfaction is foremost.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
