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.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
