CARLSBAD, CA – To help retail jewelers train their sales staff, GIA has debuted a new training package, made up of four free modules, as part of its Retailer Support Program. The training package can be downloaded at retailer.GIA.edu. The four modules include:

  • About GIA: A brief history of GIA and its role in the industry, as well as how the institute can help retailers educate their customers about diamonds.
  • The 4Cs: An overview of the 4Cs of diamond quality and their impact on diamond grading.
  • GIA laboratory reports: An overview of GIA’s laboratory reports and how they differ from one another.
  • How to use GIA retailer tools: An overview of GIA’s retailer tools and how to incorporate them into each phase of the selling process.

Also launching is a customized graphic called the “GIA Logo Lockup For Retailers,” which includes a logo with the GIA seal and the accompanying messages “Diamonds Graded by GIA” or “Gems with Reports by GIA.” Retailers can use these graphic assets to show that they carry diamonds or gems with GIA reports. This is the first time GIA has released its logo with the GIA seal for use by retailers; this is the only logo approved for retailer use.

GIA’s Retailer Support Program builds on the institute’s mission of ensuring the public trust in gems and jewelry by providing retailers with tools to help educate customers about the 4Cs and the importance of a grading report.

For questions about GIA’s Retailer Support Program, contact Tali Nay at tali.nay@gia.edu or 760-603-4566.

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.”
