Submissions are open until May 28, 2018.

Ms. Duangkamol Jiambutr, Director of the Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand or GIT reveals that the institute has been organizing this annual international jewelry design contest with this year being the 12th edition. This activity is in line with the mission of GIT in developing the workforce to enter the gems and jewelry industry. This contest is a challenging stage for designers of all levels, from students, young designers to professional designers where they will get an opportunity to show their creativity and boundless imagination to design jewelry that will be shown to the public in Thailand and beyond. GIT also believes that the contest will encourage designers to keep producing creative jewelry designs.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
