(PRESS RELEASE) BANGKOK – The Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand (Public Organization) or GIT invites designers worldwide to compete for the winning cash prize of USD 9,000 or over THB 300,000 in the 12th edition of the international jewelry design contest under the theme of ‘The Pearl of Wisdom – Illumination from under the Surface’. 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.

“This year the contest is held under the theme of ‘The Pearl of Wisdom – Illumination from under the Surface’ as we would like to promote pearls to become more widely recognized. Contestants must utilize pearl or mother of pearl as the centerpiece of the jewelry design. Moreover, the design must be able to be manufactured and sold, which will create further opportunities for a career in jewelry production,” says Ms. Duangkamol.

GIT will announce the winners of the contest on September 10, 2018 and the design of the finalists will be made into jewelry to be exhibited at the 62nd Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair that will be held from September 7 to 11, 2018 at Challenger Hall, IMPACT, Muang Thong Thani.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
