(PRESS RELEASE) A statement from GJEPC Chairman Pramod Agrawal says: “GJEPC, the apex body of gem and jewelry trade in India has decided to contribute Rs. 21 Crore to PM-CARES Fund, pledging our commitment on behalf of the entire gem & jewelry trade in India for the welfare of the nation. Nation is facing an unprecedented crisis and needs the service of organizations and their resources like never before. In such times, the council steps forward to show its solidarity and ardent support towards all the initiatives undertaken by the government of India to fight COVID-19.

Under the strong and able leadership of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the government of India has initiated proactively every possible measure to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country. I am hopeful that GJEPC’s contribution towards PM-CARES fund can make a difference to several initiatives undertaken by the Govt. towards relief of COVID-19.

The economic situation of our country and that of several industries has taken a severe beating. We have also called upon our members, trade associates, gem & jewelry associations to come forward and donate generously to the PM-CARES Fund.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
