It will be with 40 leading G & J players.




(PRESS RELEASE) The leading jewelry event in North America, JCK Las Vegas will witness India Pavilion organized by Gem & Jewelry Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) for the 16th consecutive year. This year, 40 gem and jewelry exporters participating at the “India Pavilion” will be showcasing a wide variety of trendy, unique and innovative jewelry made especially for the US market. The India Pavilion is located at JCK’s Passport & Diamond Plaza.

Mr. Pramod Agrawal, chairman, GJEPC said, “USA is a significant market for the Indian gem and jewelry industry. India exported US$ 10.58 billion worth of Gem & Jewelry products to the US in 2018. The rising GDP growth, employment rate and private consumption expenditure in the US have contributed to the rise in India’s exports of gems and jewelry to the market. It is believed that this momentum of US demand will continue further, and this is a good sign for Indian gems and jewelry exports. USA alone is expected to shell out $5.2 billion on the jewelry category this year, a whopping 31% increase over last year, as reported in its annual survey by NRF (National Retail Federation), with Mother’s Day estimated to see record spends and the good news is that India caters to over 19% of the US market’s jewelry demand.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
