Nation is facing an unprecedented crisis and needs the service of organizations and their resources like never before.

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.”

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
