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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
