GIA Cultured Pearl Classification Report

(PRESS RELEASE) The GIA Cultured Pearl Classification Report is an abbreviated report that provides classification information on unmodified cultured pearls. This dossier-sized report includes a detailed classification of the submitted pearl(s) based on the GIA 7 Pearl Value FactorsTM as well as a digital image of the submitted item(s). It is specifically and exclusively for the three major types of cultured pearls (Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian pearls), with no identification or advanced testing of the pearl(s) being performed. If a pearl is found by GIA gemologists as being modified by treatment (except routine processes) or as not belonging to one of the accepted pearl types, the pearl service will automatically change to a pearl identification report. Submitted pearls may be loose, mounted, strung, or in a fixed design layout for a strand or jewelry item.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
