The co-location of the JA New York Summer Show, the usual venue for GIA’s New York Career Fair, with NY NOW (Aug. 11-14, 2019) means space is limited.

“We’re thrilled we were able to work with GIA on hosting their event in March,” said Drew Lawsky, show director of JA New York Shows and PREMIER. “Our organization has an ongoing tradition of supporting new talent in our industry, and our hosting GIA for their annual Career Fair is an extension of an initiative that is a crucial part of our core values. We have always applauded how much GIA gives back, and it is an honor to support them in this important endeavor.”

“GIA contributes so much to the entire jewelry industry, and its annual Career Fair is a key component in ensuring our industry can continue to thrive,” said David W. Cochran, president and CEO of MJSA. “We’re excited to have our Expo run alongside JA New York and GIA’s fair this spring; there are so many potential synergies that can benefit all three of our organizations.”

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
