(PRESS RELEASE) As a response to the recent tragedies, Greenwich St. Jewelers has launched a “Wear Orange” collection with 100% of proceeds donated to Everytown and Victims First.

The collection is available here. The initiative starts today and will run through June 5th, National Gun Violence Awareness Day, when all are encouraged to wear orange in solidarity against gun violence.

Greenwich St. Co-owners Jennifer Gandia and Christina Gandia Gambale said, “It’s impossible to put into words all of the raw emotions we feel after the recent mass shootings. Feelings that have their roots in Sandy Hook, Parkland, El Paso, Orlando, Las Vegas…the list goes on and on. There have been 214 mass shootings in 2022. It’s not even June. Words are not enough.

We’ve decided to join the #WearOrange movement. We wear orange because in this moment of darkness, it’s a bright reminder that organizations like Everytown and Victims First are fiercely dedicated to reducing gun violence, protecting our communities, and directly aiding families impacted by mass casualty crime.”

Everytown is a movement of more than 8 million parents, survivors, educators, students and everyday Americans working towards ending gun violence by introducing evidence-based solutions in every town.⁠

Victims First is founded and led by surviving victims of mass casualty crime and trusted supporters. They are currently providing direct support to the families in Uvalde through the Texas Elementary School Shooting Victim’s Fund and the Buffalo Shooting Survivors Fund.




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
