10-day itinerary includes artisanal mines, nonprofit initiatives, and safari.




(PRESS RELEASE) FERNDALE, MI — Gem Legacy Adventures is hosting its 3rd trip January 6-16, 2024 to Northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya. 13 spots are available. The itinerary includes visiting Gem Legacy initiatives, several artisanal colored gemstone mines, safari inside national parks in both countries, as well as cultural experiences. Trips will also include a service project day at one of the Gem Legacy initiatives.

Gem Legacy Adventures is the for-profit partner of Gem Legacy, a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting vocational training, entrepreneurship, and community development in East African colored gemstone mining communities.

The profits of Gem Legacy Adventures funds Gem Legacy’s nonprofit administrative costs, ensuring it can continue its promise that 100% of every donation goes direct to the initiatives. Travelers are not required to be members of the jewelry industry, although Gem Legacy anticipates interest from members of the jewelry industry who may want to visit gem mining at the source in order to speak more authoritatively about it or to address responsible gem mining questions.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
